Hello. First about me: My penname is Elijah D’North. I occasionally also post as frodalulz when I’m feeling too lazy to log in to the various sites I use. I have two years in management, a bachelor’s degree in English, and TEFL certification. I was planning to use that to have an adventure abroad but COVID-19 put a decided stop to that. I’m currently looking for a full-time job while doing freelancing jobs online.
I’m pretty ambitious about writing while at the same time I’m pretty lazy: I have over 56 plot ideas for different books, but none of them are more than halfway done. When I actually share the fanfiction I’ve written I post it over on my page on FF.net and some of my poems over at fictionpress. I keep deciding that I’m going to write 2,000 words a day then allow myself to get distracted by chores and other people’s writing. I like to joke that I am technically a published author, as two of my poems were selected for my school’s art magazine, and I also got a small poetry thesis published through my college’s honors program.
About the blog: This blog was not originally meant to be actual blog. I adore reading, and over the years since I first discovered online fanfiction, have found myself desiring a list of the stories that I enjoyed most. So I decided to create a ‘rec’ list both for myself and whoever happens to stumble upon it. This is where I’m keeping that list. My Home page has a list of what I eventually hope to have all up in the original post. I will probably work on these lists for the rest of my life. If you stumble across this and find something you enjoy I’m glad. If you know of a story not in my lists that you enjoy feel free to recommend it to me. I’m always looking for something to read…[looks guiltily at the 900 books on the Kindle app] most especially fanfiction. If you think something on my lists shouldn’t be there (horrible quality, old link, etc.) point it out. Some fics I read, bookmark, put up here, and forget about why I bookmarked them.
I’m also branching out into collecting other people’s recs, as in one of my fandoms, a favorite fic recommender mentioned that there’s not a whole lot out there for non-AO3 fics.
You might also note that I’ve gotten more interested in sharing on the blog pages how I’m doing and what I’m contemplating. Originally I just used the blog part of this site to post information on what pages I was editing and what I had just added to, but as I have a tendency to ramble, I’ve found myself adding in more information, and right now I’m seriously considering doing this as a “proper blog” if there even is such a thing? Whatever, I hope you can find something on here that is interesting to you and enjoy your exploration of the written worlds!
[P.S. Not sure why this question is so fascinating, but I just use a regular free WordPress blog theme.]
Shameless plug: If you like the site and feel like feeding my desire to work on it you can buy me a ko-fi here!
