O.O

Hi all *waves* Even though I've been here for a week I just now got around to this... sorry don't kill me Ashley and Robs!



About me: I'm Kristin. Most call me Kris, K, or Calin. I'm 28 years of age, but act more like I was before puberty (yep I can be very immature, but damn it I don't wanna grow up!). I live in Northern California but hopefully not for too much longer. I'm engaged to a man we often call Fou-Fou (as in little bunny Fou-Fou. Long story lol) and we have a child, of the four legged furry kind affectionately known as 'little shit' but the vet calls her Peanut. I'm a student, trying to get my associates in medical coding and transcription (seriously, I was shocked when I found out there was a two year degree!) and plan on relocating to Colorado cause I can't deal with Cali's hypocritical laws and such.

My writing: According to my parents I've always been artistic in some way, mostly music but my mom has my first 'book' I wrote. She's a sentimental sap and apparently the scribling of a seven year old's version of how her life is was awesome to her. It's sad really, I wrote about how I always thought her and dad fell in love (complete with stick figures for illistrations and hearts), got married, had a baby and made it seem like a perfect family.

As I got older I started expressing myself through music (even wrote lyrics to a song), but in high school my Jr. English teacher got me back into creative writing. It started as poetry, writting about things like abuse, preconceived notions people have, even heart ache. But after high school I gave up on the writing.

In 2007 a friend of mine introduced me to this freak storm called NaNo and I started writing a fantasy romance about a twin who was in love with her best friend, only her best friend was a Vampire. (Blame twilight for planting that in my head!). After NaNo (and 23K words) I scrapped it, thought it was crap (I really didn't have a plot or anything lol).

2008, I gave nano another go. This time a Criminal Thriller called Cold as Ice. I blame my obsession with shows like CSI, Criminal Minds, and all the reading of Anne Rule at the time. Again, after NaNo (this time 48,980 words from the 50k mark!) I scrapped this one as well. Then in my search to appease this urge to read, I was sucked into the fanfiction world. Not that I regret it, because I have made many awesome friends and with the help of my fic wife, created some pretty good stuff or so we've been told.

My inspirations: I get inspiration from the weirdest things. Could be a movie, a picture, a song, a book. Even a drive to the grocery store. It's just a matter of using it.

So that's me... Also forgot to put that I can be long winded and my grammar/spelling sucks... *head-desk* sorry

And something for you for your time :)

Well look who came out of the woodwork? ;)

So glad to have you and I can't wait to see how you and alicelover05 fare with your NaNoWriMo project! I think you two truly have talent and I'd love to see you two apply that to original fiction and enjoy some success from it :)

P.S. I demand cat pictures!!
