Basics Name/Penname: Rachel Age: 22 State/country: USA Education: In college (kinda lol) Hobbies and Favorites What are your hobbies? Writing, video games, cosplay, makeup, working out, sleeping lol What is/are your favorite book(s) and authors? I mean, is it too cliche to say Tolkien lol I found his books at a young age and it was pretty defining for me, so just means a lot❤️ What is/are your favorite movie(s) and TV show(s)? Movies: Atomic Blonde, Crimson Peak, Hereditary, Shape of Water. I like a lot of horror movies lol and I'm a sucker for a good action movie lol and of course, LOTR. TV shows: not a lot, ATLA, My Hero Academia, Mindhunter, True Detective Writing How long have you been writing? I've been writing since I was probably around 9, but I've only recently started taking it seriously in the last year. What was the first story you wrote that you remember? (Is it finished, and has anyone read it?) Oh geez, I once wrote a story about a girl who got lost in the snows in Alaska and turned into a wolf. She was raised as one and only turned back once she found her family. Some people from school read it because I wrote it in a school notebook lol but I never finished it. Tell us a little about your favorite character to write about. Goddür is a very complex guy, his father has always wanted him to be a tough, heart of steel warrior but he's actually very soft. He's tried his whole life to get rid of that side of himself and has hated himself for it. Tell us a little about a fantasy world you've created. Hmm, although magic is outlawed and looked down on in my current story, a market island called Vard uses magic to make prisons that other mages cannot escape from. They also use magic to make the land much more beautiful than it was. Tell us a little about your current work in progress. How's it going? Really good! I started in June after spending a few months worldbuilding and I have written around 57k, I believe? I'm on chapter 21 of 30 and I hope to finish before the end of October 🙂 Have you participated in NaNoWriMo? If so, how has your experience been? No, never tried it. The closest I have is participating in a 6 month writing challenge which will end this year 🙂 Worldsmyths How did you find out about Worldsmyths? r/fantasywriters What made you decide to join? My old Discord has slowed down a lot and I really liked the accountability it gave me and the feedback I got from other writers. Working in a close group was really great because I love being around the creativity and bouncing around ideas and stuff. I figured I would try my hand at finding a new group 🙂 What do you hope to gain from Worldsmyths? (Examples: Find a beta reader, get feedback, motivation, a sense of community, fine-tuning the craft, etc) Basically everything from above. I need accountability to get my chapters written, I need feedback, advice in areas, I love the community feel.
Hello everyone! My name is Libby, but I go by the penname Livvy. I've had a profile here for a couple of months but due to some issues with my email I only recently got to activate the account. I'm a little shy, which is something I'm trying to work on, but the community here seems very welcoming and I look forward to getting to know people! I tend to write high fantasy, because I love worldbuilding. Lately I've been having some plot issues, or maybe motivation issues? I'm not really sure what my problem is only that the amount of words I've been producing lately has been way less than what I used to produce! I have two in-progress novels that I switch between based on which one is "speaking" to me more that day. Um. Let's see. I can talk about my characters and worlds all day long, because I love them so much. But I also adore listening to people talk about their own worlds and characters, so if you ever want to gush hit me up 😄 That's all for now I guess??? If you have anything else you want to know just ask!
