ssadropout's Journal

I'm a retiree (really!) who had 30 years of writer's block but was re-animated by anime and manga. I had seen some anime and read Fruits Basket when I caught a very early episode of Fullmetal Alchemist (series 1) on Adult Swim. I was immediately intrigued and began watching the DVDs. I turned to reading fanfic to supplement my FMA dosage and discovered that the mangaverse differed from the first animeverse. This led me to the FMA manga, and before I knew it, I was thinking about what was happening to the characters when they were not on the page or cel. Last April, I wrote my first fanfic and posted it on Fanfiction.net. I now have 5.9 stories posted on FF.net, mostly RoyAi. (I go by 'ssadropout' on FF.net, as well.)

I can't state that my writing is any good at all or even improving, but I am enjoying the act of writing, itself. I probably won't keep much of a journal here on LJ, but I am interested in communicating with other writers, amateur and professional. I'd even like to participate in the writing contests.
