I'm a part time accountant, full time wife and mommy. My hubby and I have been blessed with a beautiful daughter and a precious infant son.
I used to write incessantly back in high school and college, even going so far as to have several poems and short stories published... but life got in the way and I fell out of the habit. As with most talents, when you don't use it, you lose it. I always regretted the loss of the words...
Being on maternity leave when my son was born in March of 2009, and then having my hours cut to part time left me with a LOT of time on my insomniac hands, and I started reading all of the wonderful stories here at Twilighted.
Somewhere in a sleep deprived fog I was listening to a Heidi Newfield song and had an overwhelming desire to start writing again... and my first fanfic story idea was born. I've since started a second story, and I'm alternating back and forth on getting them written.
I'm hoping to have the first one finished and start submitting soon, but I have to go back and do a massive rewrite on three chapters because PPD kind of took the story places it wasn't meant to go.
Twilight-wise... I am an E/B girl all the way. I just realized that in everything I have written or am working on, if Nessie isn't part of the story then Jacob is the bad guy. Sorry wolf=packers... no Furry love here.
**I have a curse. I have these awesome stories, I get 20 or so chapters in and then I can't finish. Still trying. I know I promised to alert a few people if I ever got to the point of posting...**
**Well, I'm still trying to get over the speedbumbs in Unrequited, but my other multi-chapter needs massive reworking. The post partum depression that initially derailed me did too much structural damage to that story and I need to basically start over on it. I think I'll wait til after Unrequited is being posted though... It's all just a big mash in my head.**
**I think I made a breakthrough in my multi-chap! WooHoo, go me! So recap... Multi-chap that is about 75% done now, another one that is languishing until I can figure out how to fix all of the damage my PPD caused it, and three one shots that I work on when I get stuck on chapters. Good thing I only sleep three hours a night or I'd never get anything done! GO TEAM INSOMNIACS!**
PS: Just in case anybody wonders... I have a hard time reviewing a story before it's complete. I can love it with a fiery passion and still not be able to reveiw it effectively. If I'm reading a story of yours, be patient with me... you'll hear from me at some point I promise!!!!!!
