  1. Hi! My name on here is Ladyyev. I have been writing since I was a teenager, but I only started really writing consistently a year ago when I discovered nano. I have been building my own fantasy world for a long time with the assistance of my husband. I am a huge video gamer and Bioware nerd. I love Dragon Age and Mass Effect immensely. So far I have published a few prompts of fanfic for both of those universes, but I am ready to jump into some real world building! I love horror fantasy and I am building a horror fantasy world. My greatest strength in writing is my character building and character interaction. I actually kind of struggle with making my world unique and interesting as well as building an overarching conflict. I hope that through Worldsmyths I can figure out what my villain is up to and how to make my beautifully terrifying world even better. Name/Pen name:Ladyyev/ Kate Shepard Vakarian Age: 28 State/country: Idaho Education: Enough Hobbies and Favorites What are your hobbies? gaming, watching tv, reading, crafting What is/are your favorite book(s) and authors? Dune, LOTR, Wheel of Time, Runelords What is/are your favorite movie(s) and TV show(s)? Too Many. I'm a cinephile Writing How long have you been writing? Since I was 13 What was the first story you wrote that you remember? A romance about a guy named Alec dying and his girlfriend falling in love with his twin brother named Alex. -Is it finished? hahaha. no. -Have you ever let anyone read it? I don't think so. It wasn't complete or even fully developed. This was my first, not my first complete ;) -What genre (romance, fantasy, etc) was it? Romance, thriller Who is your favorite character that you've written about? My MMC named Jarend, I also really liked a fanfic I did where I wrote Sera from Dragon Age Inquisition. It was brilliant What is your favorite fantasy world you've created? Feel free to tell us about it. My current world is a very ancient world. It has survived several cycles of people groups. MY story is a fantasy setting, but there were advanced sci fi eras that preceded it. Each cycle reaches its fulfillment and then there is an extinction event and the world starts over from the beginning of evolving life. We have developed several pinpoints in history that are cycles apart. What fantasy project(s) are you currently working on? How's it going in terms of progress? Still working on a title. Favoring, "The God Tree". It's still in development. Do you plan on taking advantage of the beta reading and/or excerpt posting sections? I might, but I am not sure yet. Nothing is ready to be read yet. National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) Have you ever participated in NaNoWriMo? Yes, half-heartedly. I was nine months pregnant, then I had a baby and no time -How many times? Once, camps twice What genres were your NaNos? Fanfic, fantasy Did you finish the actual story by 50,000 words, or just reach 50,000 words but not be actually finished? Did not finish Are you planning on participating this coming November? yes! Other Stuff How did you find out about Worldsmyths? Nano group on Facebook -What made you decide to join? Because I write fantasy and would love to be in a fantasy community -Have you told anyone else about it? My husband and writing partner What do you hope Worldsmyths will help you accomplish in terms of your writing goals? Help me build my world and encourage me to sit down and WRITE
