Author has written 3 stories for Card Captor Sakura.
Escapism: The tendency to escape from daily reality or routine by indulging in daydreaming, fantasy, or entertainment.
Yup. That pretty much sums me up. =)
Anyway, just thought I'd take a leaf out of other authors' books and update you all about my current situation:

I'm doing some much-needed housecleaning.
After much hemming, hawing and pretty much terrible procrastination, I've decided to take down two of my stories - the first two stories I wrote and posted up here on this website.
Reason #1: I can't look at them without cringing at the plot cliches and melodramatic writing, and thinking to myself, 'What the hell...??'
Reason #2: I'm not the writer I was once then. I'm no longer active in CCS fandom, and it's been years since I've last read the manga or watched the anime. It's hard to continue a story when you have absolutely no idea how to, or simply aren't interested in doing so anymore.
THUS, I have removed them. My sincerest apologies to those who read and liked them, but if I had continued to keep them up, I would only have been giving you futile hope.
There are some parts of the stories that I like. I will probably pick and choose and try to incorporate them into new stories or, if I'm inspired and push myself hard enough, into the reworks of the old stories. Time will only tell, though.
As for IASTWM (I really need a shorter title), it's on temporary hiatus. I will definitely return to it and in fact, I'm planning to rewrite the chapters. I'll leave it untouched here, but you can expect me to be tinkering for a better version behind the scenes. This is one story I'm not going to give up, so rest assured, dear readers, and thanks ever so much for your enduring patience.
A Little About Myself...
Who am I? Well, I consider myself a fledging authoress (yes, I'm female, I'll admit to that) who constantly feels the urge to fling my stories out of the window and never see them again. Really, I would like to say that my writing has improved by "leaps and bounces" over time, but one look at my current fics and I'm stifling the urge to scream relentlessly about my stagnant writing skills. Being too hard on myself..? Perhaps, but considering that I devour books on a regular basis, one would think my writing would be as polished and flowy as I would like it to be. Hmph.
Ah well. Practice, practice, practice - that's what they always say.
Hey, there is a reason why I put up these stories and authors, so if you don't read them, you'll be on the losing end. =)
