About my stories
Why I write: I suppose that I have always had a bit of a run-away imagination and have always loved to tell stories. I get inspiration from all over the place: my own experiences, history, stories, movies, things I've learned, things that bother me, things I enjoy etc. I really enjoy writing and I hope that that shows and makes it enjoyable to read.
Timing: If I have everything planned out and if I have typed out the structure for the whole story, I will update about once a week. If I only have the outline written, school usually gets the better of me so I will update about once a month or later. I also tend to write really long chapters as well. I will try my best to finish whatever I start in a timely manner (though that is sometimes harder to do with any collaboration projects) Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about the progress of any of my works (or have any questions in general).
How I go about things: When I write fanfiction, I usually really prefer to keep things as close to canon as possible. I will also never start posting a writing project fully until I am sure that I can finish it, and finish it well. I tend to spend a lot of time researching and storyboarding before I actually start writing.
My writer's promise: I hereby make a promise to try and finish everything that I start in as timely a manner as possible. I never like being left hanging, so I will try my utmost not to do it to my readers.

Works in Progress
I decided to write this little section to give an update on the progress of my unfinished stories--mostly because I've been pretty slow and inconsistent with my updating lately (and I know it--and am sorry for it). Finding time for writing has been increasingly hard of late... (which hasn't been fun, especially since writing is one of my most favorite hobbies). As usual, feel free to PM me if you still have any questions about my progress or stories in general.
The Demon Sword: I've pretty much got the whole story plotted out (except for a few titchy details at the very end). The only problem now is finding the time and inspiration to write for it. I also recently lost the journal that had a lot of my notes in it, and it's been hard re-motivating myself to rewrite all those chapter snippets again--especially when I have this niggling feeling that, although I remember the jist of what I wrote, I'm not sure I can capture the words as well as how I had them before--it's pretty frustrating.
A Woman's Touch: This one was a collaborative work, and I lost my writing partner for it. However, I still loved the story idea and wanted badly to write for it, so I decided I would continue on my own. I did the story-boarding phase and actually wrote several chapters before I lost my notebook (same one that had my Demon Sword notes in it). I still want to finish and am trying my best to find the time, inspiration, and motivation to try again.
Hiraeth: This story is going fairly well so far. The only thing holding me back is the fact that I have to take 6 classes this semester (two of which have lab hours) in order to keep up my scholarship. But, as with my other works, I am trying my best to get chapters out.
