Why is it, every year, I get roped into doing STUPID STUPID amounts of overtime in November?!?! Seriously!! Every year since I left high school I do close to 50-60 hours OR MORE a WEEK. Idiot. I'm just too kind.
In 2012, I am the Municipal Liaison for the Australia and New Zealand: Far North Queensland region.
Well, here's everything you didn't need to know.
I'm a rabid fantasy fan. I love my fantasy. It's getting to the point where I'm becoming excessively picky.
Since a lot of the stuff I pick up and read irks me in some small manner, I write my own. Which irks me more. I'm one of those perfectionist types. When it comes to my fantasy, I pick it like fine wine.
I enjoy the challenge of NaNo and am always pushing to break my own goals. I've won every year I've participated and have probably taken on more than I can chew this year. But I'm my own worst enemy when it comes to setting goals.
All of my Nano novels are incomplete, though they've passed 50,000 words. I can't write a novel in 50K. It's got to be at least 80K, though this year, I'm aiming for just hitting 50,000 words.
I lurk on LiveJournal a lot, and I have about 8 LJ's - one main, one backup, two character journals, and the rest are all sub-universe journals. I don't mind adding new contacts, both here and on LJ. The links are above. I like talking to fellow writers. Non-writers tend to show limited interest in something they don't understand or like. I like to do a bit of a writing rant at times and am about to launch a blog deconstructing things that interest me in fantasy.
That sounds really dry and boring. Friend me and have a chat.
