With all that said, I plan to remain in my semi-retirement from fanfiction until I can find an appropriate muse to write again. I am hoping to find some extra time for reading the stories of the many talented authors I have neglected over the last three years, and I have all the best the intentions to write reviews as I once did.
Thank you for reading my work (and if you reviewed, thank you for your enlightenment)!
A little old note about me...
I'm a 40-year-old kid-at-heart. In reality, I wear the hats of mother, cat owner, cancer survivor, inconsistent part-time college student, and full-time office worker. I've been writing since ninth grade when I was encouraged by my basic writing skills teacher to keep at it. She made a real difference in my life, and I wish I could have been able to tell her one day how she gave me the confidence to keep trying ideas and just "write, write, write!" Over the course of time, writing became my solace from reality and a coping mechanism for what I cannot control. Writing is my escape, and my imagination is my safe harbor. My stories are the results of introverting to a place where I can make things happen that will never exist in reality. One of my favorite quotes comes from Adam Savage of Mythbusters fame: "I reject your reality and substitute my own."
Simply stated in regards to my stories, I paint with words and nothing I ever write is scrapped. My teacher called these random notes brainstorming sessions. I call them my palette, and I use it to draw upon ideas for scenes, dialog, and emotions.
I always feel I can learn more, and I gladly accept Reviews and Critiques for my work. The only way I can become a better writer is by the comments of others who offer me insight into parts of my stories that I may have overlooked or parts that have made an impact positively. I don't believe in flames because even the least experienced writer needs a place to start, and it's through the wisdom and guidance of the more experienced writers, that they can eventually learn this craft, too.
Lastly, for everyone who enjoys my work and hopes to see more soon, all I can say is that real life gets complicated often, and I will keep posting and updating as time allows and as my inspiration strikes. My son will always be the reigning Sunshine of my universe, and I simply had no understanding of life before he came into mine.
I found this quote in an old Sunday paper, and I think it's fitting for any writer and/or author:
Sanity is a waste of creativity.
