About


    • Hi! Welcome to my little corner of Gaia. You can call me Tanabata, or Tana, or Wish....or anything. I'll answer to pretty much whatever. I'm 23 years old and I live in the middle of nowhere with my husband, our daughter, and a doberman named Journey.

      I love to write, and I've been taking it seriously for about 9 years now. By that, I just mean that I've actually been trying to write decent stories and actively improving my craft as opposed to just dribbling words on paper, which is what I was doing before smilies/icon_razz.gif Right now, I'm working on a dystopian YA trilogy about assassins. It's...a lot better than it sounds, I hope. I hate describing my stories in just a few sentences. It's impossible. And I'm in the planning stages of a webcomic that may or may not be started this winter sometime. We'll see. I do writing critiques for people sometimes so if you're looking for feedback, you can PM me about that. Just be prepared for the truth. I'm not one of those super-nice, sugar-coat-everything kind of people.

      I'm also an artist. You can find a gallery with some of my work here. I love doing art for people here on gaia, so if you are interested in commissioning me, just shoot me a PM and we can discuss it. I've been drawing ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil, and finally caved in a year and a half ago and bought a tablet so I could do digital art. Best decision I have ever made. It's given me a whole new sense of creativity and enjoyment in my art, which I seemed to have lost for a while there. I love it. I still have a lot to learn, but I'm enjoying the journey.

      I Love
      *All kinds of music, but generally rock/alternative type stuff. My favorite bands are: Linkin Park, 30 Seconds to Mars, and Escape the Fate.
      *Art. All kinds of art, all styles, all mediums, everything
      *Big dogs
      *Tolkien
      *A Song of Ice and Fire series
      *Good books in general
      *Watching movies (though I am a little picky when it comes to defining them as 'good')
      *Meeting new people and chatting
      *Japanese food
      *Mexican food

      I Don't Like
      *Horrible books that everyone raves about like they're amazing (*cough* Twilight *cough)
      *Racist people (personal issue, long story)
      *Being told what to do
      *Rhubarb
      *People who think all big dogs are vicious killing machines
      *Cleaning my house

      Ok, II'll stop there. If you want to get to know more about me, just talk to me. I promise I don't bite ^_^








      1. All art in this gallery was made by me. To see more of my work, you can visit me at deviantART, where I go by the username FadedDreams5

I made notes on the coding, but I decided to re-edit my book, which will take time to read again. Once I'm done, I'm hoping the coding will go over well. I (unrealistically) hope to be done with the editing this weekend lol. Don't think so...maybe I'll stay up late tonight if I can stay awake.

And then I went on a week-long vacation and just saw your PM. Anyway, I'm almost done now. I keep looking at the Media button, trying to figure out where to place it, and I almost wish... the Wishlist was the fast-forward button and the Comments was the reverse button and the play button could just go in between, where the "comments" link is right now.

I don't know, was there any place you intended it to go on this one?

Just one profile left to go, right?

My state of mind right now is just... "Am I done with Gaia yet?" xd What on earth am I going to do with all my stuff? I'd hate to just hoard it on my account.

Anyway, things getting easier with the little one yet? surprised

Just letting you know. It took 3 or so days, but Rez finally got back to me on the code I sent him. It looks mostly correct, so hopefully he'll complete the trade soon. He's like us, getting on less frequently right now, so it's taking time communicating with him.

We've got Noir's profile worked out. I'm just finishing off helping her create thumbnails for the Gallery.

Hey, what website do you go to? Maybe I'll catch you around. (: If not, I've been lurking a lot on figment.com under ChanelW. if you want to check it out! I'll be posting my novel on there a chapter a week. Maybe one day you can finish it! But I know how busy you are (and will be) too. XD;
