You can call me

Josie, but I mostly sign my reviews and anything else as MJ (Maibe Josie). I'm a former film student and an avid writer. I love to write. Sometimes I go through serious bouts of writer's block but for the most part I find my way back. I'm also an artist, a musician, and a girl. I love to make movies, I love to work with others on scripts, and for the most part, I try to push myself to reach past my potential. I'm a loyal son of a bitch and I'm not afraid to admit it. You mess with my friends and family, you mess with me...

Why I'm HERE:

I love to read, and I most certainly love to write. I try my best to finish what I start, sometimes it's harder than you can imagine, with crazy bouts of writer's block and no time, or too much time and not enough inspiration.

I'm an avid reader and reviewer. I don't always review right away. Sometimes I need a little time to let a story sink in. Or if I think that a writer could use some improvement and some constructive criticism I'll be there with my fingers on the keyboard ready to give my opinion. I love to see writer's improve, and some and many on here know that and I would rather see a writer work to improve than ignore not just mine but critiques from other and I'm not shy of telling someone what I think or if an idea totally just sucks, Don't hate on reviewers that are right.

I Highly Dislike:

Poor grammar, and people who don't know how to leave/take reviews.

Poor Grammar? I think it speaks for it's self. Majority of the time spell check picks them up (spell check = best friend if you
don't have a beta reader) it's understandable if you spell the word right but use the wrong one, i.e. their, there, they're (I do it too
sometimes, and spell check doesn't pick it up, it's a pain, I know, believe me!) I'm honestly not a nazi about it unless a majority of a
fic is grammatical errors, cluttered with spelling mistakes, and just terrible formatting. I only care when it's completely obvious you
didn't try to fix mistakes, I'm human even my quick read throughs after writing for what seems like an eternity. Honestly, just try your best to pick up what you can to make it presentable, or get a beta.

Reviews...I love giving and recieving constructive criticism. Don't hate on a review that tries to help you fix your story, take the time to apply it rather than ignoring it because you think someone "dissed" your story. They wouldn't have left a review if they didn't like it or, or wanted to see it better (even some flames are constructive, try asking WHY they didn't like it. If they give you a piss poor answer, ignore them, they're obviously ignorant and have personal issues...) I love recieving constructive reviews. I encourage you all to leave me thoughts on what I've written. Even get down and serious with them, let me know how you're connecting with the story... on a side note I ignore reviews that look like this: "OmG!1 i LyKe So LuV uR sToRy!1 pLz UpDaTe !" or anything of the variety, they do
nothing to help. Sometimes I don't even leave reviews, I just read. Sometimes I have nothing to say...

Current Project(s):

Tumble Dry Low: (currently a work in progress) Estrella, aspiring journalist at Emerson, and Jackson, a music major at Berklee, stumble upon each other in a 24/hr Laundry Mat in Boston. Constant meetings and with a little pressure from Jackson's bandmate's and Estrella's best friend, Casey will they get their act together?

I write FAN FICTION stuff too, it's over on the sister site () and I write under the name Maibe Josie over there as well
