Author has written 15 stories for Inuyasha, Wolf's Rain, Shaman King, and Tokyo Mew Mew.
After a decade-long hiatus, I return.
Wow. I didn't think I'd ever get to say that. It feels really good.
It's been a long road - I graduated high school, moved to Alaska for college, switched majors and universities, and finally got a B.A. in English, with a focus in Literature. Near the end of that extended adventure, I met the love of my life, and right after graduation, we were married. Four days later, we moved to Wyoming, and four years and change later, we're now in North Carolina. I never got to pursue a Master's, but it's still on the table for the future. I've worked as a reporter, newspaper editor (Arts and Entertainment), hospitality, retail (David's Bridal.
I'm still unemployed. But my spouse is a rockstar, and I wouldn't trade this latest move for the world.
I'm not sure when I'll revisit any of my previous stories, but I at least intend to finish "Loving Thru the Trials of Love". That journey meant to much for me to abandon it permanently. I just need to get my mojo back so that I can end it the way it and you all deserve (if any of you former readers are still invested, anyway).
Why I'm Back:
I've lost a love of writing, and I'm trying to get it back. FF has always been a welcoming community, and fan fiction has always helped me explore ideas, concepts, and characters that I've wanted to use in original work. For example: my friendship with Kachie has been inspiration for other friendships I've wished to develop in stories. Vermilliana is a character I was trying to develop for an original work that never panned out.
I can't tell you where my love of writing has gone, or why it left, but it did. And I miss that part of me so much. I still want to write, and I even have ideas for novels piling up in my head that are begging to be written out. I've just lost my motivation, my confidence, and I feel like I've let my skills waste away. I need a reason to write, constructive criticism, and most importantly, practice. In short - I need this place.
And I'm glad to be back.
