Hello. First about me: My penname is Elijah D’North. I have 7 months in RPA development, six months in freelance proofreading transcriptions, two years in management, way too many years in customer service, a bachelor’s degree in English, and TEFL certification. I’m currently trying to learn enough code to shift from low code RPA development to fullstack development.
I’m pretty ambitious about writing while at the same time I’m pretty lazy: I have over 57 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?
I also am keeping up a little bit with what I’m doing on my tumbr, well, somewhat.
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!
