Name: novelinprogress will do for now (though my journal should be called 'novel-not-going-anywhere-UUUGH!!  lol!)


Age: thirty-something


Location: Florida


About Me: Fan fiction writer finally taking the dive into original fiction. Librarian by day :)


About My Journal: Pretty new, as I've just gotten back into journaling, mainly for the purpose of getting my creative butt in gear – there are a lot of interesting writing prompts comms around here, so I'd like to take full advantage. That, and to re-connect with a few online buddies from my heavy LJ/IJ-ing days. I'd really like to get to know some new write-y people, as well :)


What I Write: So far? Yaoi fan fiction. What I'm going to write – Pagan gay romance. Not sure of the how and what of the Pagan part, but I'll figure it out...


What I Don't Write: Scifi, mysteries (I LOVE mysteries, but not sure if I could write them).


What I Read: Right now, I'm listening to the audiobook version of Lolita, read by Jeremy Irons.


Love gothic romance/mystery/suspense novels from the 60s and 70s (more fun than today's popular fiction, IMO). Also classic horror like HP Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe. Also love Anton Chekhov, L.M. Montgomery, Hans Christian Andersen, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (Betty Smith's other novels are on my to-read list).

Nonfiction – mythology, psychology (particularly Jungian – really, really fascinating), folk and fairy tales, and 'writing' books, especially Brenda Ueland, Elizabeth Berg, and Julia Cameron. And diaries (so far, have read Alice James, Evelyn Scott, and Alexandra Johnson's fantastic book, The Hidden Writer: Diaries and the Creative Life).


What I Don't Read: Not much of a sci-fi fan outside of Star Wars movies – and I haven't read those novels, either :p Current popular fiction authors. Bleah. It's rare that I find one I really like. Elizabeth Berg is probably the only one – I love her short stories!


Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Am finishing up doing that just now, first editing job ever. A lot of work, but fortunately, no set deadline, so very low-pressure. And I'm almost done (yay!)

Nice to meet you!
