"The Joy of Words:

Writing is joy so
saints and scholars all pursue it.
A writer makes new life in the void,
knocks on silence to make a sound,
binds space and time on a sheet of silk
and pours out a river from an inch-sized heart.
As words give birth to words
and thoughts arouse deeper thoughts,
they smell like flowers giving off scent,
spread like green leaves in spring,
a long wind comes, whirls into a tornado of ideas
and clouds arise from the writing-brush forest."

Chinese poet Lu Ji (A.D. 261-303)

About the girl: Late-twenties, dark hair, green eyes, with a penchant for most things Japanese. Just got back from a year spent teaching in Japan. Loves: theatre, art, movies, Doctor Who, reading, writing, exploring, and Dumbledorian anecdotes.

About the fandoms: I've retired from quite a few genres; it can't be helped, as a person's tastes tend to change over time. Now I generally stick to Harry Potter, Star Wars, and occasionally, Doctor Who. Much of my old fan fiction I have removed for personal reasons. However, rest assured that old favorites such as Moment Eternal will remain.

Misc: I appreciate your reviews and e-mails very much. Only one request: please keep them constructive and relevant. Thank you!
