I started playing Dungeons & Dragons at a young age which inspired my creativity, along with my almost obsessive reading of books-the majority of them being fantasy/adventure. In sixth grade, I made my own illustrated book( albeit for an assignment) called 'The Accused Dragon', which I'd like to go back and rewrite/illustrate it sometime. I've continued writing my own stories since then. However, I didn't start seriously considering writing until I had gotten into writing fanfiction (don't judge me).
In the spring 2009 volume of my college's literary magazine, I've had my first publication-a short story titled 'The Sacrificial Misadventure', which has evolved into a much bigger story of its own.
My first year of NaNoWriMo was my senior year of high school, so that would have been November of 2006. I failed that one, but I've participated every year since. I've won more often than not, but still haven't really finished anything as most of my ideas tend to become much bigger than I originally thought they'd be.
