Hobbies and Favorites
What are your hobbies?
Role-playing, reading, writing, singing, cooking, gaming, budgeting, blogging- cooking, writing, lifestyle, and financial.
What is/are your favorite book(s) and authors?
My fave genre to read is fantasy- be it high elves, werewolves, witches, or a bit of mysticism in a seemingly 'normal' environment.
What is/are your favorite movie(s) and TV show(s)?
I'm on a kdrama kick at the moment. But i'm often watching anime or re-watching one of my all time favorite movies: Limitless (or it's spinoff tv series), Harry Potter, Serenity (or the firefly series).
How long have you been writing?
I published my first poem and short story when i was about 12? so roughly 20 years.
What was the first story you wrote that you remember? (Is it finished, and has anyone read it?)
The very first story i wrote has not been read by anyone and I still have. It's a story I wrote when I was 10 about reuniting with a parent and was a story I wrote for myself to deal with missing my bio father when my parents divorced.
Tell us a little about your favorite character to write about.
My favorite character is actually a character that is believed to be the main villian of one of my storie. They are very driven and passionate despite being someone who seems extremely cold at first meeting.
Tell us a little about your current work in progress. How's it going?
I have 4 or 5 wips going on. They are all going well and I think each project has passed the 25k mark at this point except for my newest one at 15k words. Three of my projects are currently in the revising stage at this point. The newest one is in stream of conscious writing and world building stages still.
Have you participated in NaNoWriMo? If so, how has your experience been?
Yes! It's one of my favorite exercises of the year 🙂 It took me a few years to successfully complete it but when I finally did it was worth it and now I know what works for me.
