HELLO OUT THERE!!

sigh I have finally become a member of Fictionpress, I have to say that I'm pretty dang excited!!

Some of you may know me as Gabby, a faithful reviewer of MANY stories here! No longer am I anonymous!! Yay!

I live in the South, and love it, and you may see that in any stories I may write. Which leads me to be honest with you. I have never EVER successfully finished a story in my life. I'm hoping that putting future story ideas on here will help me to push myself to finally complete one. But I also write poetry, and may put some new ones up here. And those I can DEFINITELY finish!

I am African American, but would not be offended if you said black. I say it all the time! =) I LOVE to read! My favs are fantasy/romance and historical/romance, but I'm game to new genres! I also LOVE music, especially rock of many types (and I am open to checking out new bands!), have a huge obsession with Germany and things German, and enjoy the wonderful sport of napping/sleeping.

I also have recently joined the wonderful world of anime/manga!! I seem to be recently joining a lot of wonderful worlds lately...

I am a MOST PROFOUND band nerd and love it! ...I play the clarinet... (This also explains my first story attempt...) and am also an assistant drum major this year. So if my updates are few and far between, that may be the reason. Or I may have a bad case of writer's block.

ok...breathe...I love really old movies! Like, Some Like It Hot with Jack Lemmon, and Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew too Much. Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando, Gene Kelly, Van Johnson, John Wayne, Katherine Hepburn, Jack Lemmon, Sidney Potier, and so many more people are so awesome! Watching a black and white movie really makes you appreciate the actual plot of the movie.

I really do enjoy constructive criticism, but please no flames. Fire is dangerous my friends. And please read and review, give any ideas you may have, and I will do the same!

Enjoy!!
