Writing is easy ...

... you just sit down at the typewriter and open a vein.

My name is Liz, and I write under the pen name Saga's Pen. Saga is the Norse goddess connected with poetry and writing. She is thought to be an avatar of Frigg/Frigga.

I've been writing since I was 12, simple fairy tales and the like. My first fanfic was Star Trek related, and I continued to write in that fandom until high school. I created my own characters and sometimes inserted myself and other people I knew into the stories. Needless to say it pretty much blew goats.

In high school I began writing in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer fandom. I did not continue this after I graduated in 2001, mostly because I felt I had grown out of it.

I entered the X-Men fandom sometime in 2000 when the first movie came out and have been writing in it ever since, both comic- and movieverse. It is my main and favorite fandom.

When Firefly came around I dabbled in the fandom but to date haven't completed anything.

I've also written within the Anita Blake fandom, again never finishing anything I began. I lost interest after the author took the series in a bad direction.

As far as pairings go, I work almost strictly with OCs. Why? Because a lot of the time I don't feel that anyone within the canon would fit as a pairing, or I feel that I wouldn't do that pairing justice. It's easier to create an OC and work from there. Is it a bit of shameless self-insertion? Of course, anyone who creates an OC does it, and they'd be lying if they said they didn't. Authors of original works do it, too. I try very hard to keep the OCs down-to-earth and non-Mary Sue-ish. I welcome any constructive criticism in that vein to help me improve as a writer.

Wolverine is my main muse/pup. He's been in my head since I was eight years old and my first taste was the X-Men animated series. I picked up comics after that and he hasn't left me alone since. I'm always worried that I'm writing him wrong but I've gotten numerous compliments to the contrary so I must be doing something right. He has definitely deviated from canon to the point I really only write my own versions of him; there are so many terrible things that Marvel has done with this character that I just can't include them.
