Hey there everyone. I thought I would try and make some convo on here. Maybe it's me but it seems to be kinda dead...

Name three stories that really caught your attention last year and why.

Did you finish or start any new projects this year?

What are you reading lately?

Recommend a story or two you think someone might enjoy! (one can be your own)

Just random things to get convo going!! I hope you guys don't mind.  Wink

Name three stories that really caught your attention last year and why.
Whatever The Night May Bring by Mare
Chronos Project by Lore
Just One Kiss by Erika

Why?  Because they are all different kinds of stories but all so brilliantly told.

Did you finish or start any new projects this year?
I started a new story called Maybe Tomorow not so long ago, and have also just started my first collab with Lore called Unwinding Truth

What are you reading lately?
At the moment I'm reading Whatever The Night May Bring, Chronos Breach, The Other Side of Nick Carter, Fight Me, Underneath Your Clothes.  I'm waiting for updates on Song For The Undead and Guilty Roads Smiley

Recommend a story or two you think someone might enjoy! (one can be your own)
I recommend any of the above.  I hate advertising myself but Save A Prayer might be enjoyable to some.

Mine are not all new stories because I've been a bad fanfic reader... bad ...

Sinister Devotion - Kevmylove (Erika) - a lot of people said they enjoyed it from the reading challenge so I thought I'd give it a try.  From reading this I have found a new fave author and friend in Erika. Smiley

Save a Prayer Carter-Orange (Steph)- I know I'd started, or told myself I was going to read one of Steph's stories before (Rewind I believe) and just never got around to it.  This one looked good from the get go and I was pleasantly surprised at the adventure I was taken on. Another new fave author, friend and collab partner! Smiley

The Other Side of Nick Carter Ritz - From the thread where she first discussed her idea for this story I was hooked! Nick and ghosts! why didn't I think of that!!!  From there Ritz has just kept me wanting to know about the ghosts and Nick and how they interact and what will happen.  I look forward to more stories from Ritz in the future and she has become a friend as well.

Did you finish or start any new projects this year?

This year I want to finish a couple of my unfinished stories, I donít like having those unfinished things sitting there.
  
I also started a new Sci-Fi story Severed Identities and of course Steph and I have Unwinding Truth that we are both uber excited to be writing together.  She and I are having a blast talking about it, planning it and writing it.
 
I did finish writing Chronos Breach just recently but itís too early in the year to have too many things completed yet. 

What are you reading lately?

I am reading: The Other Side of Nick Carter, Bound By Honor, Underneath Your Clothes, Fight Me, Maybe Tomorrow, Whatever the Night May Bring (which I think I started this year which is why I didnít list it above), What Lurks Around the Corner, From This Moment, Deadline: Valentineís Day, uh a couple others by Tri that I canít remember the names of them.  I went from hardly reading to trying to find new stories to keep me reading. 

Recommend a story or two you think someone might enjoy! (one can be your own)
Well OF COURSE I am going to tell you to read Chronos Project and Iím gonna break the rule and say Unwinding Truth too.  BUT, any of the stories Iím reading, or anything by any of the authors Iím reading will be a good read.

~Just three? I've got so many... Smiley well, July 2011 was the time came back to the fanfic world. I remember it was when I saw Tracy's twitter post about her update and asked her where she was posting her fanfics. When she answered AC, I was like I used to be there all the time and had one story there, so I checked the site again and got hooked to 'What to expect when you're not expecting'. And from there the addiction started. I checked a lot of Mare's stories (which she didn't know because I didn't leave a review even when I told myself I should... lol). Erika's stories - because I'm not into AU and I always try to stay away from it but she managed to make me interested enough to check them. Chronos Project - I had to read this a couple of times to understand the story because I can't easily follow the sequence because of the time travel scenes and being it written in english, but it is worth spending time. Save a prayer - I'm not into Action/adventure as well but Steph got me hooked. Her excellent writing skills made me enjoy the stories. And Curtain Call by Julie - I am a sucker for Drama/Romance. and Julie's writing style is just amazing.

Did you finish or start any new projects this year?

~ still working on The Other Side of NC, trying to finish it before it gets feautured.

What are you reading lately?

~ Hmmm there's a lot and I've decided not to bore you with a long answer. lol

Recommend a story or two you think someone might enjoy! (one can be your own) Tri's Deadline : Feb 14th, it's awesome... Chronos Project, Maybe tomorrow. If you browse Most recent page, all the stories are great, there's just a story for everyone. It sucks I don't have much time to read now compared to last year.

Three stories that have caught my attention this year.....well I have read a lot of Mare's stuff. So probably What Lurks Around The Corner from her. Remember Me This Way by Rose was another favorite of mine. And The Ghost Of You and Me by Evergreenwrite r83. I have read a lot of amazing stuff recently, its hard to pick. Lore caught my attention lately as well, her stories are good too.

I finished a few stories, mostly small ones. I haven't been writing much I'm afraid :/

I like to read action and science fiction, drama and angsty type stories...and comedy. I rarely read in the genre I write in, which is romance...but I do visit the site My Confession quite a bit.

Curtain Call was so good. I've read so many good fanfics lately I can't name them all.

Forgot to mention I did finish Still The one and am currently writing Not The Other Guy, and From This Moment On. I haven't had much inspiration though lately.

I wanted to participate in this even though admittedly, I am not really a big fanfic reader, especially during the school year. I tend to read a little more during the summer when I have more time to sit back and enjoy without feeling like I should be doing something else besides sitting at the computer reading fan fiction lol

Anyway, I shall try my best to answer these questions. Smiley

Name three stories that really caught your attention last year and why.

It's hard to think back to last year, but I think Save a Prayer by Steph, The Other Side of Nick Carter by Ritz and the one Rose has been writing about the Angel and Nick? I can't remember the name which means she hasn't updated it in forever lol

Did you finish or start any new projects this year?

I started working on my last fanfic, Whatever the Night May Bring which I am hoping will be complete by the end of this month if I can get my butt motivated enough to finish it off! lol

What are you reading lately?

The only one i'm actively keeping up with is The Other Side of Nick Carter and i'm falling behind, sadly. I would also include Rose's if she ever updated it and I gave up on Guilty Roads and History Repeating until they're complete. lol

Recommend a story or two you think someone might enjoy! (one can be your own)

Really, all the ones i've recommended before. I tend to read action and suspense and shy away from all else so i'd have to go with Steph's Save a Prayer and anything by Mersey. Let's not forget her, shall we? Of course the oldies are always goodies.

Ground Zero
Seven Days
etc...

As far as mine? Eh... lol people tend to like my "W" stories most. Why I'd Do it all Again, What Lurks and Whatever the Night although I would recommend Protect and Serve for Kevin people out there!

Thanks for the mentiones guys. I am always happy to know that people are reading these stories and enjoying them! I'm looking forward to reading a bit more suspense and action fics this summer!

Awww thanks Mare! I swear I'm gonna update Divine Intervention soon, it just took a bit for my writing mojo to return and I gotta churn out an Undead chapter first. (Once I'm home later today anyway lol. I'm still at Julie's right now Stick out tongue)

Awww Mare, Thank you very much!  Wink Honestly, you are one of the inspiration why the other side of NC is still rolling....  Grin

and just a question what do you mean by 'last fanfic'? You didn't mean you wouldn't write fanfics anymore, did you?  Sad
