Just making a sticky post and C&Ping from Wikia:



ABOUT ME AND NAME
Master Gray Wolf, or MGW for short, is the pseudonym of an amateur writer born and raised in Michigan, United States. Her first online fanfiction was based on Pokémon; later on, MGW would get introduced to the anime/game Monster Rancher and would develop a fan-series that is still in progress. MGW uploads works on both Fanfiction.net and Fictionpress.net, and also ArchiveofOurOwn.

MGW is named after a character from the anime/game "Monster Rancher". In Japanese, his name is Gingiraiga (ギンギライガー, 銀ライガー, Silver Raiga); "Raiga" is what Tiger is called Japanese. In the anime, he is the younger brother of Tiger / Raiga and is one of the Big BAD FOUR (English version) or 『ワルモン四天王』 (warumon shitennō, Evil Monster Four Devas/Heavenly Kings).

LITERARY STYLE
MGW has a tendency to write action/adventure or comedic stories for mostly young adults and young children. However, an exception to this rule is the fiction series Seishin Ninjutsu Chronicle, where some of the stories contain detailed violence and non-explicit sexual themes. The themes of teamwork, friendship, morals, and justice are frequent. Furthermore, because history, geography, sociology, and politics are a part of the author's interests, MGW likes to incorporate such elements into her stories and mirror real-life as close as possible.
MGW also prefers creating short chapters of around 1500-2000 words or less, but may make exceptions. This is for the convenience of herself and proofreading.

MGW is a long time fan of Monster Rancher. She enjoys both the game series and the cartoon, and the name "Master Gray Wolf" is derived from an animal character from the series. She sees her two stories Howl of Gray Wolf and Tiger of Freedom as her signatures works, and they are mostly based on the Monster Rancher games.

MGW likes the military and so far has created stories set in battle. United We Soar reflects her love of the Air Force and airplanes; Heroic Blaze SolAka is her first Science Fiction (super robot based) series. She also likes history and mythology, integrating both into Stalwart Silver and Seishin.

MGW has ambivalent views on fanfiction. Majority of her own fanfiction works are based on video games such as Monster Rancher (Farm) and Pokémon, and widely uses the monsters from the games with little to no connection from the TV and comic series. However, she has expressed disdain for fanfiction, especially those of NC-17 (Lemon)/MA rating, saying that it can ruin her image of the fandom. She primarily focuses on Howl of Gray Wolf and its succeeding stories, and has decided against creating fanfiction in 2009. However in late 2013, MGW has decided to create short Saint Seiya FFs, deeply inspired by the fans of Europe and Latin America.

MGW has developed two stories about Digimon, but they were removed from Fanfiction.net. One was possibly removed due to "original content" not derived from the animated or comic series. The remake of Pokefighters was canceled in 2011.

Message from MGW. Sorry for taking long

USEFUL QUOTES:


"We don't reject writers; we reject pieces of paper with typing on them."


"Don't stay mad and decide you are the victim of incompetence and stupidity. If you do, you'll learn nothing and you'll never become a writer."


"Don't make the opposite mistake and decide the story is worthless. Editors differ, and so do tastes, and so do magazines' needs. Try the story somewhere else." Isaac Asimov (3 quotes)


"Even though I thought my work was pretty crappy, somehow it got picked up serialized in some really popular venues. So to all of you out there who wants to be comic artists, don't give up. You can do it." Takeuchi Naoko








Message from 2015:

Hi guys.

The name is Doggie, the owner of this blog where I cover different topics on a whim, but mostly about video games. Additionally, I have another name, which I've used for many years as a pen name for fanfics and original works of historical fiction, scifi, and fantasy.

MGW, which is diminutive for Master Gray Wolf, based on a name from the Monster Rancher (Jpn: Monster Farm) series. I don't insist that I am a "master" in anything. I just held onto the name for a long time because of my fervor for the series, especially since I like the Tigers from said series.

I enjoy writing, and I try to improve each time. Fanfic wise, I am probably best known for writing from the Monster Rancher and Saint Seiya series. I am also one of handful of authors on FictionPress who does an original mecha series. I also do Ninpocho, inspired by Futaro Yamada novel series on ninja, and I'm a beta reader in Fanfiction.net and FictionPress.

I'm posting this here to give those who read my works a heads up on my current situation. As of Dec 2015, this is my new blog. I'm just letting you know that I am not giving up on any of my stories. Never ever. Not when I have so much that I want to do and finish.
It's just that I wish to devote more time onto something important. Both writing/storytelling and art are parallel, and both steadying my hands and diagram study has to do with what I'm shooting for. I've made a choice to return to school in the year of 2016, and I want to do this because I want to make up for my past negligence.

"Why pursue a BFA (Fine Arts)?" Something that is difficult with very competitive jobs in few places such as character artist/designer, digital media, and game/show producer?

Having an interest is a good first step. When you find something that you love to do, daily, and pursue through education, I don't think there'll be regrets, even if you suffer in finding a better wage job. I may be barking up the wrong tree, as I done many times and end up getting embarrassed and insulted only because I follow what I believed were good ideas. Still, I think I work best in the arts.

Now with work, school, and babysitting my niece, my time will be lacking. Of course, I can still blog. It is significantly easier, especially when its on a topic that I know well, or I am copying from an old entry that I did. There will be entries based on info on my works, such as updates or just tidbits.

I tried to balance writing and "school preparations" (please check out my Sketch a Day list), but I shouldn't focus on too many things in a day. Writing still requires for me to do a lot of research and planning, and when I do a chapter, it sometimes extends beyond expectations. For example, I try to go for 500 or 600 words, and then it ends up being over 800 or 1000 words (but that usually means I'm having fun). When it does, it takes more time; then there's the proofreading.

I also have the ordinary concern of having lack of funds. With work and watching over someone, I couldn't help but think about making money from home. It just popped into my head as I felt desperate. If I could make money from home, especially from writing, I think that would be fantastic. But I can't. Because I am ignorant. You make money for blogging about knowledge. I can't blog about parenting, about architectural services, how to fix your house or your car, American history, translating into English, etc.

Further desperate, I wanted to create a wider fanbase by uploading my stories elsewhere such as AsianFics and FictionPad. Therefore, I could find connections. Stupid or not, again, barking up the tree, I still went along with it. There is nothing that I have for myself. So because I am not of high scholarship or magna cum laude, I have to work extra hard to get awarded or a better living.

I am so determined now because I made the choice for myself and looked back, wanting to stomp on mistakes and see if I was doing the right thing this time. I am an ambitious type when I want to, maybe that's why I produce so many writing plans.

I want to show myself and others that there's always a bright future.

Hang in there and please enjoy my stories and my blog. I still update my blog, twitter, and my profiles, telling you what I'm up to.

- MGW
