I'm a multinational geeky teenage bisexual sailor. Not that you have anything more than my word for it.
Writing-wise, the longest thing that I had done prior to NaNo 2011 was my Holocaust project (http://pastebin.com/Dys5MJVJ) for school, which topped out at about 5.5k. I like to write, but nothing will ever get me motivated or inspired, so my stories remain on loop in my head. I have always thought that I could never have the ideas or dedication enough for a novel, but NaNoWriMo has made me prove myself wrong. I can move a plot along, though I often feel that my characters are flat, and churn out words that make Mum cringe by quantity — she was convinced that I could not do this and would bomb out, but I did succeed. Kind of. Although I finished the 50, 000 I have scrapped my "novel" for being utter crap. I do not intend to try fanfiction again.
My favourite genre is fantasy, though historical fiction is okay as well. My grandfather would love for me to get into Dickens, but after trying three separate books of his I can't seem to at the moment. I love The Lord of the Rings and related works — a daydreamer can thrive on the long descriptions — including those not made by Tolkien. I am currently watching my way through the awesome Avatar: The Last Airbender, about the only TV series I like. I do not love the font Comic Sans, going so far as to write about its faults for an English project.
What to say, what to say...
If I start a conversation with you or vice versa, there is no guarrantee that I will finish it. I find social interaction, even through a computer, very difficult, which probably explains my love of books and creating characters. I would, however, still love to chat with you sometime! I now have CFS/ME, so I did not do NaNo in 2012. This year, I'm spending most of my time on TV Tropes; find me there as Telcontar.
Finally, my concise opinionated sentences: Kindles aren't real books, copyright law needs serious reworking, and Star Wars is better than Star Trek.
