These are my favourite things in the world: stories, friends, and harmless mischief.

I keep my eyes open, I'm easily fooled, easily entertained, laugh at anything, and I'm drawn to people who have a lot of heart and intelligence.

I try to surround myself with people who are smart, kind, sly, funny, reserved, talented -- most importantly, sincere. 

I write melodramatic stories. My main concern at the moment is the choice of language for my current project: Finnish or English? This is a topic I will return to. 

Good night, and good luck.

Fretting Over Feedback

Things I've been up to recently: writing my novel, gaining confidence therewith, reading and discovering writers whose style inspires me, and fretting over feedback.

At the time I wrote the first entry to this journal I was somewhat concerned about my choice of language. The Twilight fanfics I've posted here are the first stories I've written in English, and I was surprised how effortless it was to write them. So, for several reasons (which I'll return to at another time) I decided to switch languages from my native Finnish to my not-so-native English at the end of last year, and it's worked out. In about eight months I've written some 47,000 words of actual text.

Of course, I've managed to concoct a bit of a crisis, too.
