I'm Cheryl. I have done some writing, mostly fan fiction, but I'd like to write original fiction. I am a lifelong artist, currently working in polymer clay and flameworking (making beads from hot glass with a torch). As for what I like to read and would like to write, I'm most interested in paranormal romance. I've written two fan fiction stories based on CSI New York character Don Flack. One was pretty long, 45 chapters and 89,828 words. Anyway, I'm hoping for a bit of guidance into writing original fiction.
