And on LJ (livejournal), if you can believe that, sordid truths of an author--it colors one's perception of their work. It's either that or not write at all. You're mostly just here to read the stories, that being said. But that's the best I can do, if you are uncertain as to what that means, i tend to write Alternate Universes.
And/or play merry havoc with canon, i know that means that there aren't weekly updates. I write under the pseudonym MaryRoyale here, i get bitched at to update on a regular basis, really, no, right.

They are never going to go away--they're here to stay. My sister actually loves Desperate Measures and she brings it up on a regular basis. I hope that anything I write is strong enough to stand on its own and does not need the force of my personality to make it interesting or entertaining.

I think sometimes it is best to keep a hint of mystery around an author.
