Describe myself in five sentences or less:
1.  I'm an American living in the UK (for the last 10 years).
2.  At any given moment, I can guarantee you that I'd rather be reading.
3.  I've been writing fanfic for some time now and am trying to write an original novel-thing.
4.  I live in Wales and love it.
5.  I'm from Florida originally and everything you've heard about that state is completely true.
 
Top five fandoms:
1. Black Sails
2. Star Trek
3. American Gods - more that I'm enjoying the show, I haven't created anything (yet)
4. The Mummy (NOT the Tom Cruise atrocity)
5. Uhhh, whatever tickles my fancy?  I tumblr-watch a number of things.
 
I mostly post about: Writing, life, Wales, food.
 
My last three posts: 
1.  Writing is hard.
2.  Hooten and the Lady fic
3.  Did you know that Writing is Hard?
 
How often I post/comment: Not often, but I'm hoping to change that and post weekly.  We'll see how that goes!

Yeah, I didn't get closer than traveling past the arena an hour before. It's really sad but seeing people rush to help, immediately and now by things like giving so much blood the local blood bank is full, has been so heartening.

Yes, it's true, writing is hard! XD I'd like to be able to call myself a novelist, but I have a hard time getting the damn things to finish. Somewhere around the middle my inner critic goes into overdrive and I start hating everything in life. XD

Motivation? What's that?

My current project, I'm well into the second act now, but getting it to connect with the third is being a bit difficult. D: The writing keeps moving the goalposts! (Why did I ever think writing was a good idea? XD)

5. I'm from Florida originally and everything you've heard about that state is completely true.

I laughed out loud (I've lived in FL all my life).

Anyway you sound like a fun and interesting person. May I add?

Hey there! Another American living in the UK here! (originally from Ohio, currently residing in Yorkshire, also for close to 10 years now!)

I absolutely ADORED Black Sails, though I haven't posted about it yet. And I'm a huge fan of the American Gods novel (though admittedly still catching up on the show). :D

Ahhh, yes, my beloved Yorkshire.... I could gush about it all day. (I'm biased, I know, haha.) Though I must say that I absolutely loved the parts of Wales I've seen (mostly just North Wales)...I really must make another trip soon. :)

And oh my goodness, yes, Black Sails was/is, as you say, quite literally BREATHTAKING. I have been a massive fan of Toby Stephens for, idk...going on 15+ years now? So, to see him in such a role was just... immensely gratifying, to say the least. Not to mention all the other incredible characters and the story itself. I was so, so moved by the whole show, and especially the ending. Not every day that you see a tv series that is not only of high quality but that *also* has a beautiful and emotionally satisfying ending! Just...wow. :')

Really good to know that the American Gods show seems to be doing justice to such a wonderful novel. Hopefully I'll have some time in the near future to catch up on the eps (only saw the premiere thus far, meep!).

And....OMG!!! :O I thought your username looked very familiar!! Yes, that is me. 'Between the Fire and the Sky' is a fic that is still so very near and dear to my heart --- and to so unexpectedly read your kind words about it here means more than I can say! THANK YOU. <3

American Gods and writing, plus I've started and like Black Sails. The picture you chose looks like my life in a nutshell. Wanna be friends?

A friend of mine pretty much gave me the same warning. She went from 0 to 100 with it real quick. lol.
