When did you first start writing?
My earliest memory of doing so was when I was in primary school, I was writing some story about a girl, and an attic, and an epic, unexpected adventure. It was probably terrible and awfully cliched. I think I was about 8 or 9. There may have been eariler instances though. 2.
Why do you write?
I would have people ask me this daily when I was in secondary school, writing in a notebook all the time. I don't know why, I just do. I can't not. Sometimes I go through times when I am lazier and don't write as much, but I'm usually drawing, or painting, or making something else instead. It helps me deal, I guess. Makes the world a slightly brighter place to be in. I find art very cathartic. 3.
What specific area would you like to improve in? (i.e. flow, character development, etc.)
I'd like to write a book again. I'm trying to, but my last two went so horribly wrong that I'm scared this one will go the same as soon as I start forming the images in my head into words. I don't really know what area this would be.4.
Name at least three fandoms you are familiar with.
I don't follow fandoms, I just like things. I don't like my interest of things to box me into certain membership only clubs, that fight and bicker with other ones about whose thing is better. I like a lot of things, many, many, so I don't define myself by specific ones. Ad they never feature in my work so it's irrelevant. (Having said that, Joss Whedon has always been my absolute hero and I love everything he's ever created.)5.
How do you hope to better the literature community? Do you hold any benefits, now or in the past, regarding the literature community?
By contributing to it? I have quite the following on tumblr now, and there is a fantastic community of poets and writers that I am proud to be a part of there. Maybe in the future classes of English students will look back on this first wave of digital poets and artists and I'd love to be a part of that.
