About Me: I'm really looking to make new friends on Dreamwidth! My own journal doesn't have much aside from self-indulgent things, and I can be terribly shy, but I'm very enthusiastic about the UI on Dreamwidth so I want more friends here. At the moment I'm enthusiastic about a movie which had an active fandom three years ago (welp), I'm very opinionated though I'm trying to be less abrasive about it, and sometimes I also webdesign but with questionable results.

About My Journal: It's mostly for fandom-related things that aren't fics, recs, or for others. The most interesting thing on it is probably my all time favorites rec list. I do have a Dreamwidth for actual journaling, but I keep up with my feed here and I want to spice up my flist.

What I Write: Fiction, romance, fanfiction of course. I really like mixing drama and humor; sometimes there's angst or friendship. I'm not very good at worldbuilding/sci-fi type things though, mostly because I don't think I have the practiced imagination for it.

What I Don't Write: I abide by the philosophy that I should try everything at least once. So so far I have not tried supernatural type stories or horror stories, although I definitely hope to one day.

What I Read: Everything! Well, am willing to, anyway. What I like to read is fantasy, YA, romance (LGBT especially), mystery, and of course comedy again.

What I Don't Read: Again, I don't think I really have the imagination for sci-fi. Although I do like Star Wars. But I haven't tried it very much, so if anyone has recs to get a noob like me into the genre...

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Yes, I can. I love editing.




Oh, and a note to the mods: the form code for this has a stray "</textbox" within the code without a closing bracket.

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.

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!

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:

About Me: I've wanted to write ever since I was young but never had the guts to pursue it right out of school.  I went into accounting instead, and spent three miserable years in public accounting before I realized enough was enough.  Now I work from home as a bookkeeper and spend my spare time thinking about writing and not actually writing very much XD  This blog, separate from my fandom blog, is my desperate attempt to have a writing life that does not revolve around Harry Potter characters.  In my spare time, when not agonizing over my writing, I like to sew, listen to audio books, and write people typewritten letters.

About My Journal: As mentioned above, my journal is an effort to focus on writing.  I post little snippets of original fic, little snippets of fanfic that I don't want the general fandom to see, musings about the writing process, and basically any other thoughts I have in regards to writing.  There will be lists of things to remember about characters, brainstorms for plot, and ramblings about random things.  I'm trying to read more, so I'll probably write about books that I read, as well.

What I Write:  Right now, mostly slash fanfiction.  In terms of original fiction, I'd like to write romance, specifically gay or lesbian romance.  I'd like to write fantasy as well.  I'm interested in futuristic fantasy and alternate universe historical fantasies.  I like queer characters.  I also like erotica, so I'll probably have some of that in any story I write.  

What I Don't Write: I don't think I'd be particularly good at mysteries, and I'm a bit too intimidated by sci-fi, though I think I will dabble a little bit in that, if there are fantasy elements as well.  I don't write non-fiction, either.

What I Read: Not so much, lately.  But I do plan to read more, now that I have time.  I read a lot of slash fanfiction from HP fandom.  I re-read a lot of old things I like, mostly.  I'm a big fan of Georgette Heyer's regency era romances.  I like Neil Gaiman, Tamora Pierce, Jane Austen, Italo Calvino, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Dorothy Sayers.  I read manga, as well.  My favorite manga are, in no particular order: From Eroica With Love, Yotsuba&, Saiyuki, anything by Fumi Yoshinaga or Naono Bohra, Wandering Son, Viewfinder, Petshop of Horrors, Aoi Hana.  I collect writing books, and I read those, as well. 

What I Don't Read: Really fluffy fanfiction, Stephanie Meyers, E.L. James, Harlequin-esque romances.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I could edit for basic spelling & grammar, and maybe make suggestions about structure and pacing.  I'd be happy to help edit anyone's original fic, or fanfiction if I'm familiar with the fandom =)

Name: Mari
Age: 19
Location: A big country in South America.
About Me: Writer; feminist; social justice; music, internet, post-it notes and research addict; mild-OCD when it comes to organization; moderate ADHD; major depressive disorder; bookworm; internet; curious; critical thinker; outspoken.
About My Journal: It is a mix of things I like, mostly.

Public entries are either about writing in general—no big details on my original stuff—; about my ideas; about things I've read or seen; about things that interest me, such as technology, music, books, trips, writing, and writing meta; about things I see around DreamWidth.

I have no intention to make it a log of my personal life—which is what my filtered and access-locked entries are for.

Things that are locked:
·   Original writing — discussion, outlines, planning, general whining.
·   My daily life — what I'm up to on a personal level.

If we add each other, you will have access to both sides of my access list only, locked entries. If you don't want to read about my daily life, let me know and I can set up a writing-only filter.

What I Write: Romance. And poetry.
But I am open and willing to try anything at least once.
What I Don't Write: Nonfiction. I'm open to try just about any genre, as long as it is fiction.
What I Read: Everything. I'm especially fond of nice new adult—as in, university setting, etc—novels, fantasy series, historic books, and romance, be it young adult or adult-only. And fan fiction, I read some of it sometimes!
What I Don't Read: Um, there is nothing I wouldn't give at least a try, I guess.
Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: As English isn't my native language, I might not be comfortable being the sole editor for a writer's work in the grammar and spelling front, but I could definitely edit by myself if you want me to focus on characterization, pace, themes, tone, plot, and anything else in the same group.

I am mostly looking for writers to populate my circle, I feel lonely on my corner of the internet. :(

I'd like to have some active folks around, to comment on my entries, to help me in writerly matters, to chat about ideas, plots, characters. I'm looking for people who can relate to my writerly ways, who could maybe do some hand-holding. I would, of course, do the same—I'm online everyday, I try my best to comment at least in every other entry, I love discussing writing-related matters and am always, always up for a chat.

If I sound like someone you would like to have around, drop me a comment!
