Is this thing on?
So... hi. My name is Jen and I'm an alco... oh wait, that's different.
(*is not an alcoholic*)
I've had this LiveJournal thing for a little while now, and I'm slowly figuring it out. I mostly signed up because my friend dancing_adrift
has been encouraging me to participate in some of the Supernatural fanfiction challenges - I finally signed up for one, spnhorrorbang
, and I have a pretty cool story idea for it (well, I
think it's a good idea, anyway - we'll see!) and it seems like it'll be a lot of fun. I'm working on finishing up a new J2 RPF story, then I'll be hitting the keys for a horror story (I <3 Horror!).
So, yeah - I'm a writer. And a huge Supernatural fan. So, yup, I write SPN fanfiction. Some gen, some J2 RPF, some Wincest. I think the link to my AO3 is on here somewhere? Yeah, it is. So if you're inclined, you can see what I've been writing. I've pretty much been writing stories since I learned how to read - I recently went through some old stuff in my parents' attic and found some little stories I wrote when I was 8 or 9 years old, crazy adorable (maybe someday I'll type a couple up and post them here just for shits and giggles). I went to college for writing, then of course life happened and I stopped writing for 20 years (yeah, I'm old - shut up!) but I've gotten back into it in the past year (And here's where I mention my undying appreciation for dancing_adrift
for being the best friends, encouragers and inspire-ers ever, because without them I probably would have given up again already). I even participated in NaNoWriMo last November (and completed the 50k word goal!) and had a blast - still crazy proud of myself for that, and looking forward to doing it again this year.
That's probably the most important thing about who I am - a writer - but I also dabble in photography, crafts and other arty things. I'm just not happy unless I'm creating something, so that's what I've decided this journal (blog? Is this thing a blog? What the hell am I doing on this site??) will focus on. Creativity in general and the things I create. And Supernatural... because, fuck yeah Supernatural! (Oh yeah, I curse. A lot. You've been warned.)
I guess that's it for now. Just wanted to introduce myself and pop my posting cherry here. Not sure how regularly I'll post, but here it is, here I am. Now... how do I post this??
