I'm a cheerleader.
LOL no, I'm not still in high school. Shock of shockers, I was a brain in high school.
I write at a fanfiction loop. And my main personality, who's a tad like me on the surface, used to welcome every new character to the loop, cheers when other characters have good things happen in their roleplay life, and writes to tell people when I enjoy reading their posts. I've been known to pull out virtual poms poms in IM or in mail to encourage people.
Now I find myself on author loops. And I find, I'm not a lot different there. When people get reviews, they post their covers, they post a great excerpt for me to read...well, I write them. I cheer for them.
I'm more professional as my authorly self, I don't give out cookies nor do I go the pom pom route, but I have been known to Snoopy dance. Can't get away from that and who would want to? *grins*
So on some level, beyond high school life, I'm a cheerleader.
I know it probably annoys some people. I did worry a lot about it at first when I started being the author persona. But it's a facet of my personality, I'm finding that I like. I like congratulating people and cheering on their successes. I hope that it makes people smile, and if I can do that, well, I've had a good day too.
