Author has written 8 stories for Skip Beat!, Card Captor Sakura, and Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir.
I'm present on Instagram: blushweaver1
Working on cross-posting on Ao3 as well!
Hi there, I'm Blushweaver. Just another writer who got sucked into the Skip Beat fandom and can't get out, despite writing a few other stories. One day I will escape. One day. But for now, I'm also on the discord group so say hi if you feel like it!
I am writing for several reasons. First, to improve and one day write my own original fiction. Second, because it's fun and I like it. And third, because I feel bad for not finishing stories so gosh freaking darn it, I will finish Crimson Threads, I will!
Writing has slowed down as I am a proud mom of two young crazy boys and I work full time.
Now for some other general housekeeping:
Favorite books/anime/manga: The Stormlight Archive, Mistborn, Harry Potter, Deltora Quest… all of the fantasy novels!
Question 2: Yes, the name Blushweaver comes from the book Warbreaker which was written by my most favorite author ever Brandon Sanderson!
Question 3: I have not taken any formal writing classes but I've studied a lot on my own. This includes lots of podcasts, youtube classes, and other resources. If you're looking to improve, I highly recommend the podcast Writing Excuses. It's hosted by Brandon Sanderson accompanied by several other authors, a webcartoonist, an audiobook narrator, and so many other people! The wealth of knowledge and experience in this podcast is just incredible.
Question 4: Yes, every picture I use is drawn by me. :)
Question 5: So it's been years since I started writing and I've improved a lot. Though my ego itches to take down my first stories, I will leave them up if only to show people that you can improve over time.
Random comment: I think I’m a better storyteller than a writer. One day when my grammar/spelling and such catch up with my storytelling, I’ll try publishing a book. (And you can bet it’s going to be an epic fantasy romance!)
If you have any questions or comments feel free to pm me. I’m a nice person I promise! Just… don’t be offended if it takes me a week to respond. My life is like life in general; full of ups and downs and sudden sharp turns that take you for a spin.
Transient Daydreams: No Priority
Updates: When I get inspiration and need to get out of a writing block.
This is basically my dump site for stories/scenes I can’t justify taking the time to write. I just need them out of my head so I can concentrate on my other projects. If anyone is interested in adopting one and expanding it, just message me and ask. Chances are, I'll say yes.
Crimson Threads: Now my first priority.
Updates: I'm working on it.
Taken from my one-shots and made into a separate story due to popular request. Proof that I am a good person. Pure wish fulfillment and ridiculousness.
Pictures are dumped onto Instagram. Blushweaver1. Also, if you do any fanart make sure to @ me so I freak out and gush over it!
