I don't write in a specific genre usually, except under the broad, broad umbrella of fantasy. The story comes - or the characters come and alternately stand around giving me poor-little-needs-to-be-written-for orphan eyes or stand menacingly behind my chair and say "Write. Now."
The story behind my screenname is the T-shirt or placard saying: 'I have gone looking for myself. If I return before I come back, keep me here until I am!' or something like that.
Because that's... me. I'm a very weird, confusing person, even to myself, and I'm constantly looking for myself through every means possible. Trying to figure it out. But I know that being a storyteller is a large part of whatever I turn out to be, so that's mildly reassuring.
However, you may call me Meg.
I'm a Pagan WriMo, and I homeschool, and my family has a fair few cats, which help the writerly mood. My mother writes sci-fi on and off, and my dad writes fantasy. My sister writes fantastic historical fiction - she just needs to finish a book! - and my awesome older brother has written of such things as mage wars and necromancers.
We're just one big crew of hopeful writers together. :-) ...which is pretty much the only thing we have mildly in common.
Are you still reading this? Cool.
You should be writing right now. So go do it.
- In New England, where all the monsters are.
- Drawing manga-style stuff, playing guitar and writing songs, cooking.
- Favorite noveling music:
- Whatever's on my MP3, I guess - I just turn it down low. The only specific thing I can think of is sitar instrumentals for when I'm writing dream sequences or otherwise surreal-feeling stuff.
- I can't not write. I think that makes me a writer
- Favorite books or authors:
- Too many to name!
