I am student in California. I love writing, reading, and Harry Potter, so this is the site for me!
I first discovered this site through AudioFictions, one of my favorite podcasts. I really enjoyed listening to the stories as opposed to reading them, as my life was much busier then. However, now that I have more time on my hands, I can enjoy reading and writing fanfics, although I still listen to AudioFictions freqently.
When I first submitted Chapter 1: Reunited, of my story, His Only Faithful Servant, it was rejected several times. I was at first frustrated, but I continued re-submitting it until finally, it was accepted. When I recieved the e-mail saying it had been validated, I literally shouted how happy I was. So, my message to all of you is to never give up! It may sound cheesy, but it's true.
I am currently working on another one-shot story along with His Only Faithful Servant. Keep an eye out for it!
One of the most helpful resources I use when writing is the Harry Potter Lexicon. It is a wonderful site if you need to know more about a certain character, place, or anything magical! It's always open when I'm typing.
Chapter 3 is currently a work in progress, but it will be a while, since currently I am concentrating on my one-shot!
