Hello there - I'm Mathilde (which is pronounced matt-ill-d, in case of confusion and means mighty in battle - as a little fun fact about me) and I suppose I'm a self-confessed writer. Although my writing, as I'm sure most will relate, tends to involve staring at a blank page or work document, with a dozen ideas and half-formed characters sitting obstinately at the back of my head with their arms crossed and their tongues stuck out. Inspiration evades me at the moment, I'm afraid. But when I am writing, I tend to write sort of... magical-realism, realism, psychological, crime, thriller etc - but I also adore writing fantasy. Basically, if I have an idea (most of which only come to a few paragraphs and several detailed character studies) I'll try and write about it. Anyhow, other than that, I'm very in to music (who isn't?), cooking killa' vegetarian/vegan food, David Attenborough, lemurs and Charlie Brooker. And a load of other things too. Like blankets or jazz or roller skating. So, yep - came here to read and write and whatnot so, hello!
