Oh....what to say here? Well, I can tell you that I started writing when I was 5 years old. My first story was rather ridiculous, actually, seeing as how I basically re-wrote Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone from my point of view. Now that I'm older, though, I've moved on to my own original works. However, I do still love to write FanFiction. I love writing fantasy, romance, and I've recently added a horror novel into the mix. At the moment I've got 8 novels going as well as 1 co-written novel. My secret to keeping so many projects up at the same time is Novel Notes. (Honestly if I didn't have Novel Notes I would be in very poor shape.) Needless to say, Writing is my life and without it I would be nothing but a worthless excuse for a girl.
My advice to a new writer would be to disregard that stupid saying that says to "write what you know" because where's the fun in that? Have fun with your writing and switch it up as often as possible.
Reading, writing (duh!), talking, listening to music, spending time with my boyfriend, and talking to my best friend on the phone since I no longer live right next door to him and can't open my window and crawl into his like we used to do when we were little. (Man I miss doing that!)
Boyfriend, Friends, Wicca, writing, STEPHEN KING, and now planning a wedding...wow.
