A little about me
This past few weeks I have delved into the murky world that is fanfiction. I don’t mean reading it – I’ve been doing that for a thousand years – but actually writing it. It’s all short since my attention span is, well, short, and it’s all a lot of silly fun, I recommend it to any would-be writer with writer’s block – or fan of whatever show, book or film you’d like to see just that little bit more from.
If you don’t know what fanfic is, bless you, you sweet cinnamon roll too good for this world. And if you do, well. I’m going to stop talking before I start making demands to know about OTPs. So I shall stop.

Random thought for Saturday
When do poets start writing their seasonal poems? Is it actually during the season or do they get the urge for snow about mid-August when it’s meltingly hot outside? I tried writing a seasonal poem once, perhaps twice, definitely not my thing.
