Quote of the Moment: "Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." - Thomas Merton
I've always thought of myself as a bibliophile. I love stories. I love wasting my days away with a book in one hand and coffee in the other. I'm also a music addict. I'll listen to just about anything. On most days (I work nights!), you're pretty much guaranteed to find me curled up somewhere with music on, coffee, and a book (or my Kindle) in my hand.
My username, Vieux.Carre, is French and comes from the iconic French Quarter in my hometown of New Orleans. If you ever get the chance to visit, take it. It's an amazing experience for anyone who enjoys a rich history, amazing food, and great coffee.
Anyone who likes to chat or discuss CM is more than welcome to PM me! Also, if you're available to beta any stories I may write, please PM me and let me know!
My first foray into Criminal Minds fanfiction is up. I hope you'll check out "Walking In Between" and let me know what you think.
The following quote is something I found on Tumblr, and I think it's something everyone should read...
"Sometimes I stare at the computer screen when the words don’t want to come and I think, “Fuck, who am I kidding? This is terrible writing, and this story is shit, and no one cares, anyway.” And I close the window and go do something else.
But every now and then I get an amazing, heartfelt, beautiful comment from someone who loved something I wrote, and it reminds me that, at least for that one person, I did write something worthwhile. And so I open the window again and I write one sentence, and then another, and then I start to find my way again.
So on behalf of all fanfic writers everywhere, I want to say thank you, thank you so much, to all of the readers who take the time to leave a comment and tell us that something we wrote mattered to you, that it brightened your day or made you laugh or cry or get horny or whatever.
Please don’t think we’re ever bothered by your comment, or that we don’t want to hear it, or that what you have to say isn’t important enough. It means so, so much. And on some days, it’s what keeps us going."
