Author has written 5 stories for Harry Potter, and Pride and Prejudice.

Hello,

Firstly I would like to say thank you if you have ever read any of the things I’ve put on here. If you’ve left a review, be assured I have read it, even if I didn’t respond. I do read each and every review. Even the ones - probably especially the ones, that tell me they don’t like my writing, they’ve read everything I’ve posted but don’t like it. Thank you for those, they make me smile. I also do not filter guest reviews, if you sent it, it’s up there for the world to see.

I don’t do this for profit, I’ve no intention of becoming a writer, I’m not writing a novel, although according the internet, Escape currently counts as one. That was accidental however, originally when the idea invaded my brain I was thinking 10 chapters, 50k words, how bad can it be? Yeah, well, there you have it, famous last words and all that.

I do it for fun, apparently. I do enjoy it, but I have spent a week sitting in front of my computer, thanking every god out there I write with a buffer as the next chapter refuses to form up.

I don’t have a beta reader. Some of you have suggested I get one. I’m not going to. Not because I don’t care enough, but because then not only do I have to write to my schedule, I have to write to someone else’s. I have a life, I live it, and this might be a one-time deal so I’m not even sure you can count it as a hobby. If I keep doing it I might find one, I’ll let you know.

Things I have found out writing fanfic:

· Research is paramount.

· Cultural differences crop up everywhere.

· Off the cuff character conversations made up late at night, not thought through properly will continue to haunt you. – Yes, I’m sorry. I know you all hate the size= magical power thing in Escape. I hate it too, I didn’t think it through. I would write it out if I could, but as of yet I’ve not come up with a way that doesn’t just look like that’s exactly what I’m doing.

· If you make something up to suit your plot in the fictional world you are writing about, someone will say ‘You can’t do that because, reasons.’ – Really? The imaginary world in my head, based on an imaginary world from someone else’s head, can’t do this because you say so? Oh-kay.

· You can read something through five times, you can listen to it read out by a text to speech app twice, you can upload it and re-read it, and as soon as you hit ‘post’, you will spot mistakes.

· You will get reviews that make you wonder if the person reviewing is reading the story you actually wrote.

· There is something entirely funny about the review that say ‘I called it’. Yes, yes you did, but I wrote it, so I called it first – take that!

· Some reviews make you want to change your story to include something the reviewer suggests even though you have already written the next three chapters.

· A regular update schedule is a blessing, it drives me to produce the chapters rather than leave them languishing. I will never tell anyone what my update schedule is, that way I can flake on it and not feel guilty.

Pet bug bears with fanfic:

· Unfinished/abandoned stories, you invest in reading them and they fall off a cliff. - Setting myself up there? Probably.

· The use of ‘anyways’. It’s not a word. It’s a colloquialism. I know it’s not technically wrong, I will never pick anyone up on their grammar or spelling, I’m hardly winning awards in that field myself. But ‘anyways’ will grate on my very last nerve.

· Lack of research. It’s called the internet. It’s been around a while. Please use it. I can, and I will if something doesn’t sit right. Finding out you didn’t take the same time for your story as its author, as I did as its reader will annoy me.

· Magical trunks and their ilk. I don’t like them, I haven’t read a good one perhaps? I’ll take suggestions on a postcard.

"You better not tell anyone!" he snarled after her.

Horseflesh reviews
"Pray what would a man of your standing call a proper mount?" Darcy asked laconically. "Something steady. Loyal, strong, and beautiful if possible." The Colonel reached forward to stroke his horse's neck. A one shot for Col. Fitzwilliam because he's an interesting chap and often overlooked.
