Name: Alex

Age: 20s

Location: US

About Me: I've been writing semi-seriously for almost ten years. Most of my focus has been on young adult and middle grade stories--children's books are what made me fall in love with reading, and even though I've read and loved plenty of adult fiction, I'll always keep coming back to them. 

About My Journal: Not a whole lot of content up yet, but I'm planning to post mostly about books I've read, the shows I've watched, and hopefully my writing process. I've been in a bit of a creative rut for the last couple months and am slowly getting myself unstuck. 

What I Write: Mostly YA and MG, mostly fantasy or horror. I love emotional stories with interesting characters and, usually, some element of creepiness involved. 

What I Don't Write: I'm up to try anything, though you can probably expect most of it to be pretty genre-focused. I'm not all that great at writing more "literary" fiction.

What I Read: You can find a more detailed list over at my journal, but basically anything well-written, especially if it's fantasy, historical fiction, or contemporary. Some of my favorite authors are Megan Whalen Turner, Michael Buckley, S.E. Hinton, and Dorothy Allison. 

What I Don't Read: Not really into erotica. Other than that, I'll try anything! 

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Probably not at the moment, just because I don't have enough time. Doesn't mean I wouldn't love to read it! :)

Age: teetering towards 30


Location: USA


About Me: I am more enthusiastic about plants than I am good at keeping them alive, I'd eat butter by the spoonful if I thought I could get away with it, and I can't sing but I'm pretty damned good at karaoke regardless. I used to be oh_simone on LJ, still oh_simone on ao3.


About My Journal: It's currently all old entries imported from LJ, but I'm hoping to ease back into a more sociable corner of fandom internet. I hope that DW will be a space for workshopping some writing projects, fan and orig.


What I Write: currently, mostly fanfic. None of my original stuff has ever seen light of day, but I've got bits and pieces of notes for just about everything-- some fantasy, mystery, family drama, historical, political intriguing.


What I Don't Write: I'm really terrible at and have little to no interest in writing sex scenes in general. Genre-wise, I'd never say never.


What I Read: A bit of everything. I particularly enjoy non-fiction food/travel writing, city histories, political intrigue, fantasy, and any character-driven books. I'm also a low-key sucker for Southern Gothic and true crime.


What I Don't Read: I find I generally like the ideas of sci-fi and mystery/thriller more than I like the executions. Also, anything about the white male mid-life crisis is almost always an automatic nope.


Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Yes! I would genuinely love to build up my own capabilities and experience as a beta/editor, so by all means.

Age: Older than I care to think about. I think I was in the first grade when the original Star Wars movie came out.

Location: Southeastern United States

About Me: What's to say? I've been messing around with computers since the very early 80s and using them for writing since at least 1982. I have a wide range of interests and I enjoy trying new things.

About My Journal: My journal is likely to be mostly just random thoughts and ramblings.

What I Write: Mostly science fiction and fantasy with forays into sundry other genres.

What I Don't Write: Hard to say. My tastes are eclectic and I'll experiment with all manner of styles, genres, and subjects.

What I Read: Science fiction, fantasy, romance, mystery, thrillers, horror, non-fiction, technical books, sciences. Generally I'll try anything at least once.

What I Don't Read: Contemporary political propaganda especially if evincing a rather narrow point of view whether I agree with that point of view or not. I am however perfectly happy to read political stuff from a hundred years ago or more.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I think so but I'm afraid I'm somewhat mediocre when it comes to editing for others mostly due to lack of experience.

[personal profile] skye_writer
Name: Skye

Age: 27

Location: United States 

About Me: I'm a twentysomething (obviously) writer (obviously) with vague aspirations of maybe publishing something someday somehow? I have a degree in Creative Writing from WKU in Kentucky. They named me Outstanding CW Major of the 2012 class, which baffles me to this day. (That isn't false modesty (she said, making it seem more like she was being falsely modest). I am genuinely surprised that they gave me that award.) I have a lot of interests outside writing and reading, but those have been two of my primary passions for much of my life.

About My Journal: Mostly general life updates, but since I've been writing a lot lately, that includes updates on how my latest writing venture (a lengthy TRON fanfic) is going! There may be snippets here and there, so keep a weather eye out. I am trying to update on the regular, but we'll see how long that lasts. I love to get comments, and I try to give them in return if I feel I have something to add to the conversation.

What I Write: Fanfiction, generally for sci-fi-ish fandoms. This is weird, because when I write original fiction, it tends to follow a fantasy bent. I've written modern fantasy, urbanish fantasy, historicalish fantasy... lots of fantasy. Most of it's been YA-focused as well, because I just think teenagers make for more interesting characters.

What I Don't Write: I seriously cannot imagine writing something without some element of the fantastical. I don't write romance very much because I have little experience in that arena and I just don't find it that interesting. Also since what I write is aimed at teenagers, I feel like they need to have more voices telling them that their story can be complete without a romantic counterpart.

What I Read: YA fantasy, regular YA, fantasy, sci-fi (need more of it in my reading diet), urban fantasy. Authors include: Robin McKinley, Tamora Pierce, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Garth Nix, Seanan McGuire, John Green, Maureen Johnson.

What I Don't Read: Contemporary or so-called "literary" fiction. Romance. Erotica of any kind. Very much fanfic at all, even though I write quite a bit of it. (I am vast; I contain multitudes, etc.) I can't stand love triangles.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Could, yes. Would... is another question entirely. I feel like I've got enough on my plate as it stands, unfortunately.

Age: 25

Location: Pennsylvania, USA

About Me: What about me? 25 year old queer cyber-witch, re-immersing herself in journaling as a practice and still piecing together my online writing community. I was on LJ as a young adult and I miss the vibe. I have deceptively little chill.

About My Journal: Mostly personal, but also some writing, and some talking about writing and books and TV. My day job in tech support and small electronics repair takes up a lot of my energy, and I got a few irons in the fire.

What I Write: Personal essays, poetry, genre fiction (read: fantasy, I guess!).

What I Want to Write: Romance, creative non-fiction, comics.

What I Read: Essays, poetry (I get like 10 poem-of-the-day emails), literally any fiction story with lesbians, a gaggle of web and print comics, newsletters about the future.

What I Want To Read: Better fiction stories with lesbians, and more nonfiction. I'm always down for good sci-fi and fantasy, and I have a soft spot for YA, as I suspect many folks do.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I'd love to.

Age: I first used a computer in 1981, and sent my first email in 1984. So, OLD.

Location: New England USA

About Me: Mother, writer, bellydancer, bookstore clerk (aw yissssss). Terrible housekeeper.

About My Journal: I'm sure I will post as rarely on dw as I did on lj, la. Back in the day I was a near daily blogger on wordpress, but having found most of my fellow IF Islanders on facebook, for me, daily blogging has gone the way of the dodo.

What I Write: For my original work, I write Science Fiction. For fanfiction, I've got a crazy long Sherlock WIP that I'm working on, as well as writing in Lewis. I wrote in X Files for many, many years. I do a lot of fanfic challenges, because challenges are fun.

What I Don't Write: Westerns. Modern fiction. Non-fiction.

What I Read: Well, I work in a bookstore, so It's more a question of what don't I read. For non-fiction: history, travel adventure, psychology, biography, politics, cookbooks. For fiction: science fiction, fiction, mystery, poetry. Authors I like: Diane Les Becquets (Breaking Wild is AMAZING), Erica Bauermeister, Ann Leckie, Susan R. Matthews, James S.A. Corey, James Alan Gardner, Tanith Lee, NK Jemison, Nicola Griffith, Tana French, Peter Robinson, Abraham Verghese, Sarah Waters, John Scalzi.

What I Don't Read: Well, I always say Romance, it's just that I prefer 19th Century ideas of Romance, which always contain a lot of tragedy. Westerns, epistlatory fiction, any book where the cover features a woman with her back to the reader, walking or running away. Authors: Jodi Picoult, JK Rowling, Kameron Hurley (just her fiction, I <3 her non-fiction).

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Hell to the yes. Genre does not matter.

About Me: I'm a late-twentysomething expat, originally from New England, USA, now living and librarianing in Tokyo, Japan. I'm here, I'm queer, get over it. I'm getting back into writing after a fallow period.

About My Journal: This is a writing journal, where I'll share snippets and process notes and maybe occasionally finished pieces. (If you're looking for day-to-day stuff, you can find me at [livejournal.com profile] meepalicious. Just say that you saw my intro here.)

What I Write: age range: mostly kidlit (MG/YA)
genre: both of my current WIPs are contemporaries with a little humor; often, but not always, epistolary; used to write fantasy, but I haven't done that in awhile

What I Don't Write: horror, thriller, mystery… anything too scary, really

What I Read: lots of kidlit (it's my job); microhistories

What I Don't Read: see: the things I don't write

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I'd be happy to beta read or sensitivity read* for someone, but I think my feedback would be most useful for kidlit writers, because that's what I'm familiar with as a professional (librarian) and hobbyist (writer).

*I can sensitivity read for…: lesbianism, asexuality, childhood death of a parent

I used to be [personal profile] perfectworry here, so if you recognize that name and you miss me, let me know! I'd like to get back into the Dreamwidth writers' community, so I'm looking for new friends and old.

Location: Ohio, US

About Me: Just a girl who enjoys writing fanfic (mostly femslash), taking care of her cat, knitting, playing The Sims and a few other PC games, trying to keep her cactus alive, and fangirling. Public intro post is here.

About My Journal: Life, fandom things do pop up occasionally (I’m really into movies and TV, so I often mention what I’ve seen or am watching), I talk about my friends and family, etc. Just the day to day stuff. 

What I Write: Been writing for 9 years and started with fanfiction; it’s my main medium. I’ve dabbled in fiction, poetry, and script writing over the years.

What I Don't Write: Historical, western, horror, sci-fi.

What I Read: Fanfic, memoirs, fiction, non-fiction. I’ll read just about anything that I find interesting. I read a lot of YA. Romance is my preferred genre.

What I Don't Read: *see what I don’t write*

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: You bet’cha!  :)

Age: 41

Location: USA

About Me: Small business owner, farm girl, goat wrangler, chicken herder, daydreaming artist + small town smart ass

About My Journal: I started on LJ in 2003 and after getting fed up with hearing crickets over there for far too long, I recently shoveled my entire journal over here to DW. I journal for sanity (or due to insanity, take your pick) and my daily posts revolve around whatever is on my mind at the moment. Sometimes it is deep and well thought out. Sometimes I just type crap and hit post. Either way, it's quite unfiltered and always an honest reflection of my current state.

What I Write: Nonfiction. Experiences. Ramblings. 

What I Don't Write: Fanfic and the like

What I Read: Memoirs, fiction, interesting things

What I Don't Read: Hate crap. Erotica. Political stuff. 

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I'm a former magazine editor & still occasionally help edit novels for a few authors, but I'm not here for that.

 Name: Iblis

Age: 32

Location: USA

About me: I'm a gamer, artist and writer by hobby, an aircraft mechanic by trade. I'm open minded, passionate, caring and strong willed. I have a deep love and passion for English - hell, all language - and enjoy using my poetic style to construct thought provoking and emotion inducing works of art. I enjoy researching history, science but also the more hard to find and obscure canon archives of my favored fandoms. I like to find deeper meaning in curious, quirky things and hold a profound respect for the characters I write as, and by proxy a deep respect for their creators and writers.

About My Journal: Mostly I post about random snippets of what's going on in my life, occasionally I'll post one of my fictions here. I'd like to use my blog for roleplay but we'll see how it goes.

What I Write: Character muse based fiction, including anime, manga and video games. These genres include science fiction, horror, super natural, fantasy, drama, action and sometimes a hint of romance in the middle.

What I don't write: I'm not interested at all in writing Original Character work at this time. I have a very busy life between my career and social activities and I do not have the energy or time to create any real character traits or anything past general looks and maybe some motivations, perhaps a name. That, and I'm usually uncomfortable with smut. It's rare I will write it and I have to be very comfortable with the individual writing with me. That, or it needs to make sense to the plot.

What I read: Fiction, sci-fi, horror, and expressly thoughtful pieces. If it doesn't engage my brain, I'm not interested.

What I don't read: There's no nice way to say it, but I don't read badly written, thoughtless crap.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work:
Yes, I'm sure I could. I'm quite the beta and a bit of a grammar nazi. But do I have the time? No. No, not at all.

Below are a list of my current fandoms and muses just for added information:
Hopefully that's okay...

[personal profile] jediknightmuse
Name: Ally/Jedi Knight Muse

Age: 30 until February 14th. :|

Location: Connecticut, USA

About Me: I just finished my graphic design degree so I'm working on finding a new job- right now I'm a grocery store cashier and have been one for nine years. I write original fantasy stories. I always try to write novels but I admit I've never actually finished one. I also love photography, reading and watching movies. I'm a big Star Wars and Firefly fan.

I run a writing community, Worldsmyths. It focuses on the fantasy genre, but we welcome pretty much any kind of writer since it's so easy for the discussions we have to apply to any genre. It's been open since May and we have a small community of writers of varying ages and experiences.

I've been on Livejournal for, like, 15 years, though I didn't start getting active on there until around eleven years ago or so. With Russia moving Livejournal's servers, I've backed up my LJ onto Dreamwidth and am going to try and get into the habit of cross-posting from here over onto LJ.


About My Journal: Well the last two years, my entries were filled with a lot of things about school and the professor I had to deal with (he was basically the head of the department) and assignments and such. Besides that, I post about family, friends, SOMETIMES work, writing, Worldsmyths, and sometimes fandoms and maybe other things I'm not thinking of.


What I Write: Original fantasy in a medieval-type setting.

What I Don't Write: Historical fantasy (meaning that it may be a medieval-type setting but it's not necessarily historically accurate), sci-fi, modern fantasy, horror, erotica, fan fiction (I may eventually try writing Firefly fan fiction but I don't see that happening any time soon), non-fiction...probably some others I'm not thinking of.


What I Read: Fantasy. I have read young adult fantasy that takes place in the modern day world (i.e. Percy Jackson) but otherwise I prefer high fantasy/sword and sorcery-type fantasy with medieval-type settings (i.e. the type of setting Game of Thrones is in).

What I Don't Read: Erotica/pornography, fan fiction (if I get bored I'll read Firefly fan fiction, but I have to be really bored), horror, romance (I like stories with romantic elements but not, like, Danielle Steel-type romance), sci-fi (I have technically read Star Wars books in the past but I don't read it any more)...probably some others.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I could certainly attempt to, but it might be a slow process on my end.

If you have a Livejournal that you're still cross-posting to, it may be a good idea to make sure we're friends on there, as well.

Age: 28, but I don't act my age... be warned~



Location: Gold Canyon, Arizona



About Me: I am a child at heart who enjoys most child-like things. I never act my age, but that's mostly disability-related. I am also diagnosed with a high-functioning form autism. I started writing when I was in the fifth grade, but I didn't pick it up until my late teens or so. :3



About My Journal: There are times when I'll post about writing-related things, but it's mostly just random moments in my life!



What I Write: I write what I call disability fiction. Basically, I write about characters with disabilities and put them in tough situations where they have to deal with them and learn more about their lifestyles. :3


What I Don't Write: I don't really have a preference for things I don't write. It depends more on my mood and what I feel like writing. I can't name all of the genres I don't write either because that would take ages. XD



What I Read: I love, love, love to read anything related to mental health, disabilities and LGBT as well. These types of stories are inspiring for me, and they also help me gain more knowledge on how to write my own stories.



What I Don't Read: I don't read anything with huge stereotypes. I also don't read horror or anything related to gore or incest either.



Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Not really. I'm horrible at editing my own stories as it is, so it'd be even harder for me to edit someone else's work as well. :c



I hope I did this right. :c I also don't know what the tags are here. ;o;

Age: 32


Location: Midwest USA


About Me: Mom, wife, introvert, gamer, reader, watcher of random television. I'm pretty laid back and like a lot of things and fandoms and try to keep my life as simple and stress free as possible. I welcome people of all walks of life.


About My Journal: My journal has been cleaned out and made new. I'm migrating over from LJ, and I'm looking for friends who are interested in the same things as me.

What do I post? It's a mix. I try to update every day just to keep myself sane, so I write a lot about my day, how it's going, and the struggles of trying to be a full time writer. I write A LOT about the writing process. A LOT. I also put up my daily task lists for my own reference so I don't forget things, because I'm one of those people who has to write it down five times in order to get it done. I would be willing to share my work under filters to those interested, as well, but haven't done that in a while.


What I Write: Science fiction and fantasy, for the most part. I am known to experiment and try out all kinds of new things with my books (styles, genres, etc.). I dabble in other genres as well. Kind of wherever the muse leads me.


What I Don't Write: erotica. For now. This could change someday. Who knows.


What I Read: Everything? Seriously, I'll read everything.


What I Don't Read: See above.


Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Yes, to a point. I'm good at content editing. I can tell you what's working plotwise and what isn't. I try to be as constructive as possible, so I would never tell anyone they sucked, etc.

Age: 32


Location: East Coast USA


About Me: I'm a techie by night (shift) and an introverted writer by day. I'm owned by cats, obsessed with anything peppermint flavoured, a tea drinker and a gamer.


About My Journal: Trying to make it/keep it a mix of real world, fandom and world-building notes and information. I did just start my journal so there's not much there right now but I've been doing the journal/blog game since 2001 on LJ so I'm not new to it.


What I Write: Speculative fiction is a really broad term but my writing has Knights, multiple dimensions, technology, airships, probably space flight and an assortment of other features that puts it firmly between science fiction and fantasy. I do both/either pretty interchangeably.


What I Don't Write: Realistic historical fiction? I will try my hand at anything.


What I Read: What I write plus YA and more adult themes, I'm pretty flexible and love reading about other people's worlds and writing processes!


What I Don't Read: There are probably some things that trigger my squick factor but I can't think of them at the moment?


Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I probably am not a premier editor, but I definitely could read for spelling, grammar, cohesion, etc.

Name: Marianne (Mari for short if you prefer)

Age: 32

Location: Southern Maryland, USA

About Me: I've been a blogger on Livejournal since the mid 2000's. Not too long ago, LJ's drastic changes have caused me to post more entries on DW than on my LJ account. I've been writing for so much longer than that... Ever since January of this year, I've been an activist. I've been paying attention to politics some. I am an Independent, and I support Voluntaryism. I strongly think and believe in individuality. I embrace it. I'm for guiding people to think for themselves, because that is so important! We're not meant to just accept things and be herded around like sheep. I am sickened by the collectivism agendas that are on-going. To keep myself from being bitter, or too frustrated, I use humor every now and then to mock all our oppressors, and media trolls.

I also post things about my life.

About My Journal: It's recently transformed into one of other places in which I share my beneficial knowledge. I also share some of my poetry, and even quotations of wisdom. I intend to be at least a little more active with this account.

What I Write: A lot of what I've written this year is political poetry, some of it being satire. I also have done a bit of misc. ones. If I can get back into story writing, then great! For now, it's just been poetry. I know I don't have to be as picky over those. (When it comes to all stories, I tend to be such a perfectionist at times.) It usually doesn't take me long to finish most of them. Sometimes, I write articles based on what I research.

What I Don't Write: erotica, not as much fanfic as I used to, misleading information... I don't write anything in support of TV news or politicians for instance.

What I Read: For much of this year, it's been nonfiction on truths about American Society, important information to know about history, what's been so wrong with public education, etc... I also have read a bit of fan-fiction, a bunch of sci-fi and fantasy, and certain authors such as James Patterson, Jeff Lindsay, Whitley Strieber, Gregory Maguire, and the Monk books (based on that funny old detective TV show) by Lee Goldberg.


I like getting to know new people. I hope to even help out at least some of you. Really, lol, my stuff don't stink! I'm a very thorough researcher, and I back up the facts with my own reasoning and common sense. ...Hey, if you'd like to see a really awesome website for all writers, then I highly recommend writing.com! I love it there. :D Many over there are really nice, and there's much to do.

What I Write: Dabbled a bit in everything, but primarily SF/fantasy, often queer.

What I Don't Write: Poetry, largely.

What I Read: Again, a bit of everything. Currently: slogging my way through A Song of Ice and Fire, reading all of Sarah Waters' novels in chronological order (just finished Fingersmith and seeing her at a book festival later in the month, eee), doing a 2014 reading bingo, and reading every interesting-sounding translation of Euripides' Hippolytus I can get my hands on. On my to-read shelf atm is Gormenghast and a selection of classic SF novels I feel like I ought to read. I have a Goodreads!

What I Don't Read: What doesn't interest me. Not so much into non-fiction, horror, crime and romance but will dabble if it comes recommended.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: If I have time/energy and it's reasonably short.

About My Journal: I've been absent for a while, because I live on a variety of social media. I grew upon Livejournal and moved over to DW about the time I stopped blogging quite as much. But I've recently consolidated my main and fanfiction journals, so I'll probably be posting more often.


What I Write: What I like. Dark fantasy, urban fantasy, with the occasional jaunt into other genres (particularly horror, erotica). I write original fiction as well as fanfiction (I'm a slasher and a shipper but no, I don't do shipwar bull). My original fiction (that I share) mostly ends up on blogger (I link to it).


What I Don't Write: Westerns. Um...crime? General fiction or "literary." (Sometimes this changes.)


What I Read: A little bit of everything. Fantasy, horror, non-fiction, literature classics.


What I Don't Read: Westerns, crime/legal/thriller type stuff, high fantasy. (Sometimes this changes.)


Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: If I have time (so, the shorter the work the more likely I can give you an assist). My undergrad is in English. But don't let that freak you out. I'm not going to smack you with a ruler if you misspell something and I break the rules of grammar often.
