I've actually been on NaNo on another account since 2007.
I'm Emily, and I'm a 18-year-old tattooed, nerdy, cat-obsessed atheist from southern Ontario, Canada. In the real world, I'm a professional writer and psychology major. I believe comedy is the answer to everything. I'm a body-positive, sex-positive bisexual, an intactivist and a libertarian but I hate to take things too seriously. I have a severe heart condition that will limit my life span, so I want to spend the time I have laughing.
