I'm Ellyn but you can call me Arden Mollie. I made it a life goal to do Nanowrimo at least once in my lifetime, and though this is my first year, I'm already a convert.
I'm sixteen years old and I've been writing since before I could read. I've also been told that I after I did learn to read, I'd do "mirror writing", just like Leonardo di Vinci. I can only hope that great minds think alike.
I have a self-published book for tween/teen girls called "Torn Heart", and a nautical piratey adventure called "Seaspear" that I've put on the back burner to do Nanowrimo.
I am a Christian, I own a horse and live with my large, noisy family (large as in many persons, not large on the weighing scale) on a wannabe farm in a small town. I absolutely love small town life, contrary to many other teenagers. In the future, I definitely plan to raise my own children on a farm.
Some other things that I love are dusky sunsets, dark chocolate with sea salt, swordfighting my brothers in the dark, Pride and Prejudice ('05), appreciating art, interior design, talking with my friends about deep things and then saying, "well, aren't we the philosophers", Psalm 91, cloudy days, my rolltop desk, kittens (and their whiskers), crisp apple streudel, brown paper packages tied up with string, etc.

- Running with my herd of horses, drinking mugs of Irish tea, petting cats, making desserts, organizing, slack-lining, cross-country skiing, interior design and fashion....
