Author has written 3 stories for Life, and General.

I was once Incurable Adoration.

I'm an author who believes that the more interested you are, the more interesting you become.


1.23.13 = I've grown up so much since I started writing and reading online fiction in about 2002. Fanfiction & the like aren't actually easy worlds to live in, but online stories have helped me become a better writer and a more aware, understanding person.

Please know that I take care with my "favorites" lists to spotlight stories & writers that impress me, because when you're creating, you're being brave (as compared to Cassandra Clare brave), & that absolutely benefits a person. I figure it's growth, right?

Much respect to the few who left comments. I never expected or needed them, which made them nice surprises. And thanks to Nice Shoes Lets Fcuk, Myrika, Deena, lovelyhead, eurtreve/Alaskan Airlines, Secretive, halloran, Hate to Hope, Katie-Maude, and Penelope P for inspiring me. No, really. Each of you wrote something --even just one idea or line -- that woke me up.
