I am a comment monster. Didn’t you know? I both love commenting and receiving comments. So write me some comments! :D

Long live Ficlets!

N.B. This is my second account through Ficlets – my first one seems to have stopped working (I can’t view my profile page).

October 6 marks my one-year anniversary of being a part of the Ficlets community! :D

Reading and writing are my life, both in my profession as a Language Arts teacher and in my studies in English Lit. as a grad. student. I like many different literary genres, but I most love fairy tales, fantasy, and historical fiction.

I’m a proud member of the League of Awesomeness, and I strive to be as active in my commenting as I am in my ficleting. To learn more about LoA, please visit THX 0477’s profile at:

I ♥ comments! Please feel free to provide comments and/or critique my writing. I welcome any chance to improve and grow as a writer. In addition, I don’t mind at all if you want to prequel/sequel any of my ficlets. If anything I would love the chance to collaborate with you. Though if you do prequel/sequel any of my ficlets, please write me a note so that I can read it!

If you’re going to take the time to rate a ficlet, please take the time to provide a comment. I welcome both your ratings and comments! =)
