Author bio

🌺💜🌺💜🌺💜🌺💜🌺💜🌺💜🌺 Hi, I'm Ana, an aspiring author from the UK and my favourite genres are thriller (any type!), fantasy and sci-fi. My favourite fantasy creatures are Sirens, Kelpies and Griffins by the way. I'm a professional procrastinator, Leo (though I don’t really act like one) and Mediator/INFP-T. I love sarcasm, tend to be kinda cynical and also really like chocolate. I use she/her pronouns. I wear glasses too. Also; Likes are nice, but comments and critiques are much more helpful! I kinda hate it when people just go on random liking sprees. I’d appreciate it much more is you took the time to read and give feedback. Points are nice but at the end of the day, improvement is better :) Currently writing a fantasy novella. Trying to write on Reedsy as often as possible, but life gets in way. I hate the minimum word count. >:( Sometimes I delete stories that are a bit weaker just because I feel like it. My profile picture is the Merlion in Singapore; I have close family and my dad was born there, so the country has always held a place in my heart. Also, Reedsy has Black, African American, East Asian and Asian American categories for the respective authors. But there is no South Asian/Non-American/ General Asian categories! I’d love it if Reedsy included one of these categories for people like me who want representation on this website, but don’t really fit into any of the categories. (I’m British with South Asian heritage). One more thing; In regard to the up voting drama I've seen around Reedsy, here are my thoughts: (can you use a colon within a colon?) I think you should upvote the stories you like, or the people you like. Don't go on random liking sprees. There are some insanely talented people on here who can't get the spot on the leaderboard they deserve from upvoting sprees. There are definitely talented people up there though, like Deidra Lovegren, B.W and Laila Lavender, though people might disagree with me. Anyways that's my opinion, and we don't have to share them to enjoy the spread of talent and opportunity Reedsy gives to authors like us. P.S: I think the point system (at least on comments) is arbitrary and dumb. Anyone know of a petition to get it removed? I’ve seen some for downvotes, but it would make no sense to remove the downvote and not the upvote, as they go hand in hand. Also it give people points not for writing. I know, it’s great to meet so many nice people, but Reedsy is about writing! Points should be given for writing! Basically, I think you should do follows for follows and likes for likes, but that’s just me. If I don’t follow you back, it’s probably just because your writing isn’t really my thing. Also, I'd like to thank everyone on here (particularly Zahra Daya, Krt M, Sahana Karthik and Svara Narasiah) for being such a positive stream of sunshine every time I open the website. Go drop them a follow and a like! You guys have really helped. Thanks. I love getting notifications, so if you's like to chat about anything, no matter how mundane; I'm free! I wanna thank everyone again for actually helping me improve my self confidence and my writing! Love you! Fandoms I am a part of/Stuff I like that don't really have an established fan base but included here anyways: -The BBC series, Death in Paradise 💜 - Fanders/Sanders Sides (I love Logince, Logicality and HATE PRINXIETY WHAT IS UP WITH THAT) 🌺 - Crybabies/Melanie Martinez 💜 - Anna Akana 🌺 - Boyinaband 💜 - Random Encounters 🌺 - Life is Strange 💜 I'm also gonna recommend a great site I use to name characters. Type in a name you like but don't want to use (For example it's been used before in a popular book e.g. Bella, Harry, Sherlock, Jo, Amy etc ) and it'll give you similar names. I find it really helpful! OK, have a nice day and remember YOU and YOUR WORK are LOVED! ✊🏾 🏳️‍🌈 🌺💜🌺💜🌺💜🌺💜🌺💜🌺💜🌺💜
