A big big hug,



  1. Haha, I've just started writing Dance Academy (an Aussie TV show) fanfic with my friend. If I'm being honest, I prefer writing my own stuff, though - I don't know why, I just like it better. I'm quite active in The Hunger Games fandom, although I have all of twenty followers :). And I looooove your pseudonym! I chose mine because, if you look closely, it's actually in my name. Also, my grandma died right at the time when I started blogging, and her name was Elizabeth Leslie.
    Email me soon, lovely!

    1. I've never heard of this show! Yes, of course it's better when the content is yours, but writing fanfiction helped me have a schedule, be regular, interact, I had immediate feedback after every chapter... and most importantly, I found really good friends through that!
