I'm in my thirties, female, and have earned an M.F.A. in English/Creative Writing. I've been interested in writing most of my life, and started writing poetry (which is the genre I mostly studied in school) when I was 12 or 13. My dream is to become a published and successful author/poet/novelist/writer of books.
I started writing fanfiction back in college, around 2000. I'm much more confident now about my ability to transition from poetry to fanfiction short stories and full-length chapters. Mostly everything I write has some kind of darkness to it, but I feel that my style and skill is in constant evolution. I find myself surprised and delighted (and sometimes shocked) over and over again with what happens when I "follow the characters".
I enjoy writing/reading in the genres of Hurt/Comfort, Mystery, Suspense, Action/Adventure, Drama, and Angst mostly, though I'm starting to learn Humor—in its dark form anyway. I love Psych; everything about the show and the writing and reading of fics has become an all consuming fire in my life—pushing me to be creative during my waking hours and in my nightly dreams. Lassiter is my favorite character, but all of the characters have really grown on me and made an impact; they each want their own voices to be "heard".
I'm happy to say that my first completed Psych fic, "Ask For Another Day", came out so well and that it's a story that people, and not just myself, want to read. Wow. I'm very proud of this first one, my "baby", which brought such hope and happiness that I can accomplish my goals. It feels like I just wrote my first "book", and it's a wonderful, touch-the-stars-up-above feeling. I hope that, by writing fanfiction, and feeling like I'm "doing a good job with it", that I can get my confidence up enough to actually write and publish a book.
Currently, I have five WIPs and one WIP episode tag "series".
I always appreciate reviews and feedback as well as your time to share your opinions of my work with me. So thank you in advance to any readers/reviewers! :) Really, I love my reviewers—you are awesome!
NOTE: I know I am currently extremely behind on updating, as well as author responses, but I want to let my readers/reviewers know that I am not giving up on anything, in spite of whatever stress RL throws (and throws and throws and throws) at me. I feel very blessed to be a part of this wonderful site and to have met so many awesome writers and lovers of Psych, and I appreciate all of you so much. <3
Thank you thank you thank you to whomever nice, sweet people nominated my work for the 2010 and 2011 PFAs, and who voted for me. *melts into goo* :)
My username is the same on fanfiction.net. I just signed up with the usanetwork message boards, and my username on that forum is LunaGreen_Eye_Glass. And one more, fictionpress.com: GothOnTheInside (where I will be posting my original (non-fanfiction) poems). And, because I'm apparently insane, lol, Twitter: LunaOnTheInside.
