INFJ. Writing. Music. Paracosms. Cats. Wintertime. I live and breathe Harry Potter, and I strongly believe that pineapple should never be on pizza.

Message from Writer

"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."
-Ernest Hemingway

"The road to hell is paved with adverbs."
-Stephen King

"Words, in my not-so-humble opinion, are the most inexhaustible source of magic we have."
-Albus Dumbledore

Harry Potter gives me a way to worship.
Daydreaming gives me a way to think.

What do you most value about WtW?
I like the community---it's large enough to have lots of interesting work but at the same time small enough that I feel like I know each writer here individually.  If you mentioned the username of someone here, I would know who they are and what their writing is like.

What would you like to see WtW do differently?
