Author has written 13 stories for Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, and Back to the Future.
Me: Female. 22. Aussie. Eternal Uni Student. Self Professed Nerd. Massive Sucker for Fluffy Romance. Oblivious Fangirl.
Log 1 million words:
In total on all my stories here and on fictionpress I want to have 1M words published (not including author's notes).
I read somewhere that if you want to write professionally you need to practice like mad and 1M should be your initial goal.
I'd like to dabble in professional writing one day in the distant future (I'm certainly no where near that level at the moment).
If I haven't deleted a story then that means I do plan to come back and finish it. I have quite a few stories on hold at the moment and I know people hate that.
Improve My Writing:
This is a given. I want to explore a range of genres, develop my vocabulary and writing style. And find my unique 'voice.'
Some things on my list include:
-Second person POV
-A Memorable Original Character
Diversify My Fandoms:
Anime/Manga is my current passion, but even within that genre I haven't explored a great deal of fandoms.
I tend to get obsessed on the one show for an extended period of time. I'd like to write for movie and novel fandoms as well.
DBZ, Naruto, Death Note, FMA: Brotherhood, SNK, Parasite the maxim
Minimum One Story per OTP:
It's no secret I am a serial-shipper. The kind that anime fanboys most certainly despise.
Don't get me wrong though, I understand that there is so much more to the fandom than the romance elements (or lack there of.)
But I just find the shipping culture is hella fun. Since 'Romance' is a favoured genre of mine, I'd like to write a story for each of my beloved ships.
Some of my fave pairings:
Naruto: ObiRin, NaruHina, SasuSaku, ShikaTema, AsuKure, NejTen, InoSai, KakaTenz, KakaIru
DBZ: TruMar, BulGeta, ValTen, GokuChi, BullaUub, ViHan
Leave Some Kick-Ass Reviews:
Reviews are my favourite thing. I get giddy and I just flat out delight in the feedback.
It's nice to know people actually read my work not to mention they liked it.
Since I know how good it feels to receive reviews I aim to leave comprehensive thoughtful comments on every chapter I read of other people's fanfiction.
I try to mention every element of the story I enjoyed, as well as the writer's successful use of writing mechanics, story elements and anything else that is relevant.
Occasionally I will leave some critique. I usually let the odd spelling and grammar error go (because that would be awfully hypocritical of me to be that pedantic.)
But in the name of helping a writer improve I may point out a continuous error, or suggest improvement in story progression.
As a person who only speaks English, I'd can't tell you just how thoroughly impressed I am with all of you who write in your second language.
I feel you just don't receive enough credit. To me that is an exceptional achievement!
So if I ever criticise your writing mechanics, I do it with love!
And with the knowledge that you are fucking awesome for even being able to write in the ridiculous language that is 'English'
Meet People/Make Friends:
Having friends who can speak the language of your fandom is an important thing.
I've been pretty lucky thus far and made some great friends through this site and via my FF-Twitter account. People I chat with almost daily.
Not to mention we support each others fanfiction.
My DBZ darlings: EscapeReality.98 , Tiffany7898 and Writer'sFantasy
I can't thank you guys enough!
UsagiMitsu is my Naruto live-tweeting pal!
Although I don't know what we are going to do with ourselves now that the manga is officially finished.
PM me! or find me on: Twitter and Dragon Squad Forum.
