Hello, all! I'm not good at introductions, so I'll just say that the Inspiration Fairy has recently invaded my life, smacked me with the plot wand, and said she's not leaving until I write it all down. Resistance is to be met with sleep deprivation and withholding of caffeine, so I've decided to comply for the sake of my sanity and those who live with me. Usually this only happens in November (thanks, Nanowrimo), but apparently the good fairy screwed up her calendar this year and arrived a few months early. When I'm not catering to the whims of my writing compulsion, I'm a clinical psychology student (previous degree in anthropology believe it or not. We anthros are like spilt change, we get everywhere when you shake us out of our cozy undergrad programs) and a nerd of epic proprotions. Most of my writing therefore, is science fiction or fantasy, though leaning more heavily towards high fantasy these days. I LOVE world-building, which is both a blessing and a curse, because my story worlds are very filled-out, but I can get stuck in the details and have to work extra hard to avoid inappropriate info-dumps. Right now, the biggest thing I'm working on is writing "breathing" characters, or characters that are heroic while still feeling like real, fallible people. So, that's me in a nutshell. I'm looking forward to hearing about all of your projects and advice and such and honking on about mine a bit (again, to save the sanity of those who live with me).
