Hello, call me Ministar. That is pronounced like a shortening of "Miniature Star," not like "minister." I came up with the name awhile back when my friends and I joked about creating a female band much like the girl groups of Korea and felt it was necessary to give ourselves cute-sounding nicknames. Ministar, however, simply stuck. Probably because I'm only five feet tall. Grr. In any case, to give you a brief age-sex-location overview, I am nineteen years old, female, and I live in the United States of America. I'm attending my first semester of college in the spring of 2011 and I will be focusing on English as a major until/unless I decide I actually want a job later in life. Like so many people nowadays I plan on writing novels that will fall in the genre of speculative fiction, and I'm a sucker for steampunk and/or the combination of technology and magic. I also like writing about crazy people. They are far more interesting than normal people. Also, does anyone else need to "get themselves in the mood" for writing? Not that writing is like a chore, but I delight in setting atmosphere, dimming the lights, putting on music and the like before I begin writing.
