Well, I've overhauled my profile. This includes removing everything that was here before and making adjustments like taking down the stories that I have no motive to finish. Sorry if you enjoyed them, but they seem pointless and are stuck in a weird limbo like state.
All I can say is I'm seventeen and I love to write. Unfortunately I'm nowhere near as good as I would like to be, but I see this more as practice. I've met some good, honest, and very blunt people. They stab my ego repeatedly all the time, but even if it hurts it's for the best. After all, I'll never get better if they don't give me some criticism.
I have a new pet peeve; people reviewing their own stories with glowing compliments. I was checking out this one story today and it was so horrible I couldn't help but read the reviews and see how other - more intelligent readers - had cut it up. I found negative reviews from everyone except the author who had left reviews while still logged in under their own name. That's right, not even trying to hide it! They said things to themselves like "You are very talented" when clearly they aren't. Seriously delusional is all I have to say.
Finding Paradise: 30 was posted and I feel so relieved to have finally finished this fic. The fic is over a year old! I feel like I've been writing it my whole life though. It's my first ever totally finished fic! Normally I stop off about mid way through and never finish...
Secretary Secrets: My beta and I teamed up to overhaul the project and are currently working on the tenth chapter. However, at her insistence, I agreed to only post one chapter every Saturday so that we could maintain regular updates. So, there are only four chapters out at the moment. We've got a good head start and hopefully people like it. A lot of readers/hits show up in the statistics, but not too many reviewers. Oh well. This will likely be a long one. Merc is making me take it slow. She says Squall doesn't give it up easy. Haha. Due to some personal issues on both ends, we've got this story put on hold for a little while. It will be back soon!
A Romantic Dream: Chapter 6 just went up! Already favourited and generously complimented by readers. I'm actually really proud of this fic just because it feels different from the standard AU high school fics I tend to read (and enjoy more than I let on...). I hope if the fandom is something you're familiar with, you'll give it a look. Right now, it's rather slow and I can't say I've ironed out the whole plot yet, but it's coming to me.
People I feel I should thank...
Critic: The biggest bitch I have ever known. She's mean, even for the internet. I wouldn't change it for anything though. I asked her to review my story and she did. Even when she wasn't happy with it, she sent me feedback. There's nobody more dedicated to making me feel like crap. :) If you want someone to tell you what they think of your story, she's the one to ask. The best part? She lets you choose between getting your feedback as reviews or as PMs.
They are the best team for fan-fiction editing/feedback ever!
