Author has written 3 stories for Dragon Age, and Once Upon a Time.

I am Writer's Dilemma, a burgeoning author finally ready to start sharing her work with the world. Most of what I write gets abandoned in in the endless black hole of procrastination and writer's block.

Fantasy and the unattainable are the things that inspire me the most. Neil Gaiman has been a huge influence in my life as a writer, and has shaped my style a great deal over the years. I love everything nerdy, cute and silly.

You should know that my first piece I posted has been the largest undertaking of anything I have ever written before in my life. It's over 25,000 words, and I'm not even near done with it. Dragon Age 2 has caught my imagination in so many ways, that I could not ignore the urge to take on the game myself.

I finally have a genuine drive to write and see something this large through to the end. With your encouragement and desire to see where this leads, I know that I will make something that I am proud of, and happy to share with others. Thank you all so much! And thank you for giving me over 1,000 views!

To all of my Swan Queen fans, thank you so much for urging me to keep posting! I adore you all, and thank you for taking the time to read my work!

For anyone who might be interested, I studied editing for a time in college, and I would be more than willing to edit/beta stories for my fellow authors! If you have any interest in my services, please PM me! I love editing, and will gladly take a fine-toothed comb through stories/chapters to work out the kinks!

I also have several non-fanfic works of mine on my FictionPress account here: https://www.fictionpress.com/writersdilemma Check it out, and let me know what you all think!

The Cellar by LovingOnce reviews
The air is damp. A chilling breeze nips at her skin, exciting the light hairs on the nape of her neck; it hurts- sore from being slumped over for an indiscernible amount of time since she had been fading in and out of consciousness. She can feel her back ache as she straightens her spine, whimpering in mild pain at the injustice of such a position.

The Staircase by redcharcoal reviews
Regina could still smell her cologne and feel the cheap pleather pressing into her back. The brunette sucked in a breath.
