"Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer."
"Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it."

Random Info of the Day: (September 29) Updated JAHSR. That's it. That's the epilogue. We are done. Now to finish a couple things for a break and to focus my efforts into Travelin' Soldier, Lights, and Silhouette. Those drabble collections will continue, though. No worries about that.

Update Schedule: I will be aiming for updates on either Monday or Friday. Some weeks, I might be able to do both. Eventually, I want to be able to update twice a week so I'm just going to leave those two days as the days I update. Period. Check back on those days.
My Anime Music Videos
Videos and Animations Done for My Works:
FanArt Made for My Works:
-I am 29 and happily married for 3 years.
-I like quotes, video games, fantasy, furries, ponies, learning other languages, and generally anything that is considered weird.
-I am a church music director at a small church and it's only the best job ever.
-I dream of being an author with at least one kid and lots of cats.
-I have one big happy family and love each and every one of them.
-At times I feel like a hyperactive child trapped behind a huge brick wall of anxiety and fear.
-I write a lot, read a lot, and love meeting people on the internet. Especially if we can talk about writing!
-You can love it, you can hate it, you can ignore or adore it. But whatever it is, ah, it's always going to be a part of me.
Everything not Dragon Ball is probably, most likely, not ever going to be updated again. I apologize. I moved on and have no interest of going back now. Maybe one day, though. You never know.
Collections: - I feel no obligation to update these; I update when I please and that's it; even if some of them have a chronological feel, they are mostly made with the intent of being read as one shots; I put them together in "one fic" so that it's easier to navigate my page; I have enough free roaming one shots on here as it is -
A Thousand Years, Five Hundred Miles, What the Promise is For, Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore
Multi-Chapter Fics: - I feel great obligation to finish these now; they are my focus -
Travelin' Soldier, Lights
From Here on Out: Any New Multi-Chapter Fics will be completed before ever seeing a post. That means, when Silhouette comes around, it will be complete when you guys see it, and it will be updated twice a week. Until then, these others above will be my focus. Organization is good.
Everything Else Dragon Ball Related is Complete. Search around to your heart's content! One shots and one shot collections and a full story or two, I believe. Other fandoms have stuff, too, but, as you can see, Dragon Ball is the focus right now. Sorry about that. But please, enjoy what I've done in the past. And feel free to send me questions if you have any!
Write at least 1000 words a day
Finish a prompt list.
Make sure to update something consistently.
Hamilton Writing Challenge: 51/51
On Reviews I Give:
I try to keep a policy: if I read, I review, so I hope for the same from others. If you read, it's only courtesy to review - good, bad, or otherwise. Sometimes I leave helpful reviews; other times they're just acknowledgments of "I like this" - though I will leave what I like if I do say that. By reviewing me, you point me to your stories. Does this mean I will diligently read them? No, not necessarily. But I do like to read the profiles, at least, of everyone who reviews or favorites or alerts me.
On Reviews and What I Hope To See:
Personally, I write fanfiction to practice my craft and to take a break from the more seriously approached original stories. I don't search out heavy criticism like I do with my original stories. Certain things are important to me in fanfiction: are the characters in-character - or otherwise explained as to why they're different? Is the plot interesting or terrible? Are the character interactions believable? (THAT one is SUPER important to me) Should there be more or less description? Is the balance between dialogue and narration good or does it need work? Is the pace fast/slow, bearable/unbearable? Do I pull you in and keep you or do you find yourself wandering? Are you enjoying it? Why or why not?
(That being said - don't worry about perfect reviews. Spazz out a little. Tell me what you like. Quote stuff at me from the fic. Smash your keyboard. Whatever. You'd be surprised how much even the smallest reactions help with writing (plus it makes everything feel a bit more interactive lol))
On Reviews and MY RESPONSES to Said Reviews:
I try really hard to respond to everyone, but sometimes I panic (for some awful reason, I dunno). I worry about coming off as too conceited or something in a reply, or I worry about being too defensive. Basically I worry about saying something dumb/stupid/crazy/weird and scaring you off, so if I don't respond to anything you review, that's why. Also - guest reviewers - I can only answer your questions in the next posted chapter. So keep that in mind when you ask something. (Also, I LOVE rambling reviews; I LOVE it when something I wrote sparks you to go off; I LOVE hearing all your reactions; and I LOVE AND APPRECIATE everything you can give me).
The following list of rules comes from Vestdan over on fictionpress. I have not been on that site in forever and neither has she, but I still love these rules and wish to share. Please know they are not mine.
Vestdan's rules of writing:
"Characters rule the story. I just write it down."
