Name: saintbounty

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.

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.

Name: Frances J., or Meep

Age: 20something

Location: Tokyo, Japan

About Me: I'm a twentysomething queerish girlwoman expatriate librarian-at-arms. I eat books and bleed poetry.
… er, that's what it says on the Twitter account that I admit to at work, but I'm writing this from a mattress on the floor and eating an ice cream in my pajamas on a Friday evening, in between shuffling my new tarot cards and watching trashy movies. (The Twitter account I don't admit to at work is [twitter.com profile] transpacifique.)

About My Journal: This is where I post any writing worth sharing. (If you're on LJ, my "journal"/diary is [livejournal.com profile] meepalicious.)

What I Write: I write stories for my friends. I love to co-write or share a 'verse and characters, so most of my recent work is collaborative stuff or my half of a story, or my characters' side of something. I like writing about ordinary people caught up in extraordinary circumstances, or extraordinary people trying to live ordinary lives. I like fantasy (high and, especially, urban), historical, contemporary and, yes, romance. I like to write underrepresented queer romances; expect to see a lot of queer women, ménages à trois, gender nonconforming and/or asexual characters. 
I'm an active participant in [livejournal.com profile] writerverse, so many of my stories are challenge responses. Sometimes I dabble in [community profile] rainbowfic.
I'm starting to dabble in poetry and creative nonfiction.

What I Don't Write: I don't write horror, smut, or hard sci-fi.

What I Read: I'm a children's librarian, so I read a lot of kidlit. Online, I'll read most anything, except for what I don't. (See below.) I like to read (and write) about happy, stable queer relationships, the kind of people  I might like to be friends with if I met them, and fuzzy warm feelings. 

What I Don't Read: I don't read what I don't write, but I might make an exception for hard sci-fi.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Sure! I'm a bit rusty, but I used to spend hours a day copy and content editing for friends online. I would be happy to be a beta reader and critique partner; that's actually what I'm here for. I mean, I hope we will be friends, but I'd love to meet some creative collaborators!

Name: kiwa (KEY-wah)
Age: 20 (almost 21, yo)
Location: West Coast Canada
About Me: I've been creating stories for as long as I can remember. My earliest written work was from 2002, when my uncle was trying to get me to write something everyday to improve my then-horrible printing. It was a story about two cats and their owners who eventually fell in love (so cliche don't even). Outside of the general theme of literature, I enjoy history (1800s-1900s), design (interior, mostly), and food. I love food, and I love cooking for people. I'm only really good at soups and sandwiches, though. Can't say what I cook looks all that great, but it tastes good. I also really love looking at photo and art galleries. I spend a lot of time on image bookmarking sites like ffffound, reform, we♥it, etc.
About My Journal: A mix of dairy and written work. Some screenshots from playing video games, and some photos from my instagram. But 80% writing.
What I Write: speculative fiction, freeverse poetry, mystery, horror and gore. Romance. Sometimes I just write fluff, but I enjoy thick atmospheres the most, where there is a bigger picture happening and what I'm showing you right now is only a teeny-tiny bit of it. I used to be really into longass chapters and these really super lengthy plots. But I think I've shortened quite a bit since then. I've developed a pretty strong taste for vignettes and other forms of short fiction. edit: just made a writing journal. it's called ethosa.
What I Don't Write: sex. I mean the descriptive kind of erotica. I'll grace over scenes like that, but mostly for my reader's comfort. Oh, and I don't write action scenes very well.
What I Read: Exactly what I write. I love space and stuff. I love reading weird things, but still make sense in their own quirky way.
What I Don't Read: I hate storylines that are weird and "out there" just for the sake of being different or unique. And trust me, it's really easy to tell. Those kinds of things are just trash, ugly garbage.
Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Yes. I could. If they ask nicely C:

ps. - tried looking at the already existing tags to tag this right!

About Me: I'm a huge mental health advocate, and I do what I can to prevent suicide and self-injury. I am diagnosed with bipolar II and obsessive-compulsive disorder, and I am a psychology student at Virginia Commonwealth University.

About My Journal: I've just started this journal after coming over from LiveJournal, so there's not much to it just yet. 

What I Write: I am currently working on a novel titled Colored Blue, and I also run a blog of the same title. I write poetry, articles, non-fiction... pretty much anything. I was originally a journalism major, so I write about anything that strikes my interest.

What I Read: Hermann Hesse is my favorite author. His book Demian is my favorite.

What I Don't Read: Romance-ish stuff, Westerns, some sci-fi (it depends)...

Name: Mylia

Age: 39

Location: Maryland

About Me: I'm the single mother of a teenage daughter and I work as tech support at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. I have a lot of health problems so I tend to write a lot.

About My Journal: My journal is Friends-Only and I dump a great deal there sometimes. However, I do have a writing journal at [profile] magnetfordeeperwonderment. Yeah, I know the name is really long. It's from a song describing one of my favorite literary characters and a friend said it was so indactive of me. I also have an account at Archive Of Our Own located here.

What I Write: I write Fan Fiction and Original fiction and poetry. I write whatever the muse tells me at the time to write. Right now, I'm working on a card for [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo. I seem to write a little of everything and jump from genre to genre. It's usually paranomal or history.

What I Don't Write: I don't write incest of any kind, humiliation or animal cruelty.

What I Read: It depends of my mood because I will try almost anything if it grabs my eye. Right now, I seem to be reading a lot of revisionist history fiction, paranormal fiction, re-written fairy tales and histories.

What I Don't Read: Incest, cruelties, true crime novels.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I have before. :) I've worked as a copy editor for a newspaper in my past and I'm an English Major.
