Hello everybody. :-)

My name is Julia, and I'm a San Franciscan/college student/amateur writer. Above all, however, I'm an opera singer. Golly! (myspace.com/juliametzler) Anyway, I'm at FP to improve as a writer. So, like most other people here, I love critical reviews. And yes, critical includes flames. I'd be happy if you told my that my story would serve a better purpose as toilet paper or firewood, as long as you give me advice on how to make it better. And, as a little incentive for reviewing, I'll be sure to read and review some of your work as well to show you my gratitude. :-)

Right now, I'm moving back and forth between work on "The City of Lyre" and "Mary Ann." I got a ton of positive feedback for "Beautiful," but the writing gods just aren't working with me on that one right now. I hope I'll be ready to get back to work on it soon. Meanwhile, enjoy the others. :-)
