I am new to livejournal, but not new to writing in a journal. I was primarily over on Dreamwidth, but things have greatly died and a friend reminded me about LJ, which seems to be a bit more active. I've been writing for about 15 years now, and its sad to see this type of medium dying and being taken over by FB and Twitter type of expression. So, searching out like minded folks!
Things I write about:
[-] Work, college and home life - I work full time as an Administrative Assistant, go to school part time for my BA (very late bloomer), and I am pretty close to my parents and two brothers (and IRL friends) ... so I tend to write about these three topics often.
[-] Photos - I love taking pictures, but I don't get out as much as I'd like to take them. Yet, when I do, I usually post them (3 outside a cut, the rest under cuts).
[-] Fiction - I write paranormal/supernatural/fantasy fiction for fun (no fanfic), and sometimes post blurbs from my writing. I've written two books but never published (I do it for fun and publishing would take the fun out of it for me). I'm working on a third right now that's actually YA so some blurbs may pop up. Poetry - I also dabble in poems, and sometimes one will pop up.
[-] I don't do this too often, but sometimes a news story will spark some type of emotion in me that I need to explore, and I'll either rage about it or sympathize or even just 'wtf' about it. It's rare, but it happens sometimes.
[-] Videos - I used to post these a lot, but then YouTube decided to delete some or people did, and I'd go back and 90% of the videos no longer worked ... so I don't really post them any more except when a song really hits me and I just have to share it. Or I'll post the lyrics.
As far as what I am looking for? Preferably active people (more than once a week writers). I've noted that folks who don't write that often tend to stop writing completely, and then I just have dead air on my friends feed. Otherwise, I am very open to reading about anything and everything and not too picky in that regard - just be active :D
As far as 'about me', my most recent post has quite a bit on that if you're interested and it's public.
Happy befriending! :D
