Author has written 47 stories for General, Horror, Historical, Life, War, Nature, Love, General, Fantasy, Religion, Family, and Friendship.

Hey all, I'm Mother Nature (I know, a bit presumptuous, but hey, it's just a pen name) and I've only just come back to FictionPress. Writing has always been a beloved hobby of mine - hopefully I'll finally start making more time for it.

I work as a research and field linguist.

Likes:

The outdoors and outdoor activities
Languages and Linguistics
Video Games
Comics (X-Men/Avengers! Whut whut!)
Movies/Silent Films and Cartoons
Politics
Traveling
Vampires (I collect Vampire movies...)
Cooking/Food
Wine
Reading
Music (I hoard most all kinds from house to folk to rap...excluding only country and mariachi)
Environmentalism
Naps
Lava lamps

Dislikes:

Ignorance
Intolerance/Fundementalists
Potatoes
Indecisiveness
Higher math
Monopoly
Rush Hour Traffic
Cold weather

Current Status: I used to write ALL the time, but as school and work have taken their fair (or unfair) share of my time, I seem to be over taxed and my ideas don’t flow as they should. Well, I should say, they flow as well as they always have, just now I’m either too busy, too tired or just plain not in the mood to write them down any more. So writing has become a hobby that as dwindled in usage. I would like to write more fanfictions and short stories, or at least finish my old ones. But they are from years ago when I first started on this site and are as of now outdated, as I have aged quite a bit and my writing style has greatly improved. Anyway, enough excuses. I'm trying to make more time for writing. Until then, I shall just read the fictions of others and hope it gets the creative juices flowing.
And as far as poetry goes, I'm still truckin'. I write noticeably less poetry than I used to, but it still comes to me, if rather sporadically. See my account on Fanfiction.net under the same penname.

Thanks for stopping by!
