Author has written 1 story for Silmarillion.

Dear readers,

some of you are probably wondering why I deleted all but one of my stories from this site. You see, by now it is almost ten years ago that I posted my first work around here and while I fondly remember that quite some people loved to read my stuff, I haven't been quite so content with my writing for some time. I've been harbouring the wish of revising, re-writing and re-arranging my stories for a few years, but unfortunately life and work has a tendency of getting in between me and my plans. Since the revision is taking me so long, for now I've decided to take down most of my stories. They are only gone "virtually" though, and stored away safely on my hard-drive until I'm ready to re-post them. (Feel free to ask me for a PDF-version should you wish to have a copy!)

I've left "Nothing but Dreams" online, because I'm still quite proud of it, even though I can't believe it was so long ago that I wrote it, because I still can remember like yesterday the snowy afternoon I sat in my student's apartment, typing away. :)

You may stalk me/find more about me on atanwende.livejournal.com.
