Author has written 5 stories for Once Upon a Time.

"Being a writer is like having homework every night for the rest of your life." (Lawrence Kasdan, qtd. on tumblr via 1000wordseveryday)

And it's both wonderful and terrible.

Sometimes more of one than the other.

That's why I simultaneously hate and love that I returned to writing nearly five years ago. It's such a magnificent obsession, filled with all the shades of dark and light, both freeing and chaining, breath-giving and breath-taking. It's one beast I don't believe I'll ever understand and shall certainly never tame, but I suppose that's half the pain and half the exhilaration of writing. So in the meantime, as I wrangle to grasp how it fits in my life, I guess I'll just keep doing it.

Thanks to those here on FF who inspired me to begin sharing.

Forget Me Not by roberre reviews
"You cared for me," she says, slowly. The words sound strange on her tongue, because he didn't care for her and nobody cares for her because nobody knows her (because she doesn't know herself).

Touch by Anti-Kryptonite reviews

Belle falls in love with a touch, and with a touch her world is both destroyed and given beauty.
