I'm a fairly new writer, and I appreciate any constructive criticism.

In the Dust- ON HOLD.

The Howards and the Seymours Preview- I've decided to take a totally new course with this, so I've deleted the preview for now, but when I finish the new and improved first chapter it will probably be posted.


Okay, first of all, I review to each and every fic I read whether I love it, hate it, or just think it's okay. I do not flame.

Reviews are very important to me, and if you post stories here too you probably know exactly what I'm saying.

If you review, I am most likely to return the favor.

"To be a writer is, in a sense, to be a day dreamer- to be living a kind of double life." -Jorge Luis Borges
