JUST ME

HAI. I'm Melissa.

Um, I've just started to get back into writing original stuff about 6 months ago. I took a creative writing class and that started it all up again. When I wasn't writing my own stuff, I was working on Instant Star fanfiction - which I am still working on currently. I enjoy it - even though it's not entirely my own. That is the only ff I've done besides one un-finished 'thing' about short track speedskating and Apolo Anton Ohno. If you don't know what (or who) that is - don't fret, most of the world doesn't either. :)

Anyway, I'm still brainstorming for other stuff, but it's taking some time, so...we'll see how that goes.

Oh, and if you ever want to read my fanfiction - click the homepage. :)

Music helps me write. Music just helps me in general, but it definitely helps me write.

The song(s) that I am currently listening to: Franz Ferdinand - ''Ulysses", Muse - "Hysteria" and "Stockholm Syndrome", and Heart - "Alone" :)

Below is stuff that might interest you about the stuff I write.

WRITING PROCESS

Don't Stand So Close To Me: Chapter 1 is done, but I don't know if I'm okay with it as is, so I might have to do some major overhauling.

Mr. Right: There is more to the story, but very little of it has been written out, so I don't know when it will be done.

The Formal Date: I have 6 versions of this as of right now and none of them are complete.

Best Friends Forever: Working on this as we speak - almost 1 scene complete.


MY STORIES

Multi-Chaptered Fics (anything past 5 chapters)

Don't Stand So Close To Me: still editing. I'm very very unsure about this project.

One Shots/Shorts

Mr. Right: complete - I think? (posted 3.31.09)

You And I: complete (posted 3.31.09)

Coming Soon--

The Formal Date: will be used for a creative writing workshop in May, so I have to get it finished soon.

Best Friends Forever: will be used for a creative writitng workshop in May, so I have to get it finished soon.

--these may change given enthusiasm to the project
