Life is being a bit crazy right now what with work and vacationing and all. Right now I'm gearing up for the most busy time of my work year and then it's hole up and rest for NaNoWriMo. I plan on doing a few exercises, hopefully get some stuff done on Breaking Evan and my fan-fic but not much else. Once NaNo hits I'll be posting daily what my word count is and what I have. But for now I'll be a bit silent.
Well, I'm starting to get back into the groove of writing my own stuff again. I've gotten my feet wet by doing play-by-post writing RPGs and from that it's gotten the wheels turning so we'll see what kinds of stuff I come up with!
I do appreciate constructive criticisms!
So abou me 'eh? I seem to be on the older side of things from what I've seen so far - but that's okay. I'm 24, lived in Texas technically my whole life though I grew up traveling around to different rodeos with my parents; my dad was a world champion calf-roper & team roper and my mom was a trick rider and roman rider. So I'm southern! I'll probably write some short descriptive works focusing on some of my memories from those times of growing up.
I've gone across the world thanks to my gypsie feet. My favorite place by far was Russia; if I could go back there and live I would. The most exotic was Thailand.
I feel sometimes like I've done everything and nothing. I've played roller derby, I've traveled parts of the world, I have four degrees and I still want to go back to school. I've done some things most people will never do in their lives and still I want to do more. I guess I'm a do'er. I'm currently in a job I thought I'd never do; if you'd asked me a few years ago what I'd be doing I'd give you an exciting plan - but that's not what I'm doing. I don't do anything exciting, I work in an office to pay down my school bills so just maybe I can move oversea's again. You see, I want to move to some place like Russia and work with orphans and teenagers again. I've done it twice now and I loved every minute of it. I'm a Christian but I won't bug you about it; heck - if you look at me and think I'm a Christian I'd be surprised. I have a lot of tattoos, all of which I've gotten while being a Christian. I like art - therefore I want to be art; get it? I have no artsy fartsy drawing ability; I rely on google and my artsy friends for that sort of inspiration and I'm okay with that! They're much better suited to do that them I am! I have no regrets. I love people, I think that might be why I enjoy writing; I like knowing people and figuring them out.
I started writing years ago when I was a kid. I think at the time it was an outlet for me because I was sort of chubby and kids picked on me. Sad, I know - right? I found escape in my word and the worlds I created. Eventually I just started to like creating stuff and that's when I started sharing it with other people. Now I think I write every day from co-writing RPGs to writing my own stuff. A lot of it comes from dreams, amazingly enough. I have very vivid ones. I'm always up for a challenge and doing something new. I'm trying to write romance right now which is sort of funny because I really fail in that department.
I want to do NaNoWrMo this year. I want to write more in general; I like doing it and I think I'm okay. I'm also learning how to knit. I think I'm on my way to being an eccentric old woman who runs around the world doing silly cazy things and knitting while she does them. Be on your guard! I have knitting needles!!
