My name is Carmen! This is my third year in NaNo and I am determined to win this year! Last year I lost, and the year before that I won but didn't finish the novel. I usually write realistic fiction of sci-fi/fantasy lit, usually having to do with Gods or super heroes. My favorite author is Oscar Wilde I really want to write and publish a novel one day.
I'm a Nerdfighter, a Starkid, a Mathlete and overall nerd. I'm obsessed with Mythology and literature and history. I dunno, I keep listing things about myself and I don't feel like it paints a good picture of myself and who I am, which is why i don't like writing "bios" because I always try and pigeon-hole myself in a couple of paragraphs.
I mean, there's a reason why there are less autobiographies than biographies. People get paid to write about other people, because a lot of people aren't good at writing about themselves. Well, and a lot of the people who are important enough to have biographies written about them are dead, so I guess that wasn't a very good example.
I think that my mindless ramblings are a better example of who I am rather than me saying that I love soccer. Which is true, but it's also irrelevant to writing, really.
I love broccoli. That should probably tell you everything there is to know about me.
