Author bio

*No longer battling writer's block, thank you for your concern* I suppose I'll start by saying stay safe, wear your mask, social distance, and please never use the words "social distance" after this year. Or ever, really. Secondly, Some stuff about me. As a pluviophile (lover of rain), bibliophile (lover of books), astrophile (lover of stars), logophile (lover of words), and chionophile (lover of cold), I am pleased to announce that I did indeed look all these words up just now. I write because I have to, or else my brain might explode. I desperately want a lime green car, and hope to run a business someday. I'm impatient, as my burnt tastebuds remind me, and I can cook, or at least follow a recipe. I am tired because I spend half the night solving all the world's problems and the other half plotting to destroy it. Finally, a note on my stories. "A Blizzards' Blizzard and "The Lionheart Concord" (whose name I may change) feature some of the same characters. "The Land of Dancing Lights" will at some point have a sequel, as will "Red Puddles". I feel like I should have a third thing, but as of now I don't. Keep writing, Authors of Reedsy!!!! I will also take it upon myself to give life advice, however unwanted it may be. (Please note that I have made most of the following up, so take it as you will) Life is a little like brussel sprouts; there are some crazies who love ‘em (Namely my mom, who has forced brussel sprouts down my throat for as long as I can remember), and there are people who make money off them, but mostly, it sucks while you eat it, but, in theory, it’ll benefit you later on. A Series of Unfortunate Translations in which I ruin some of my favorite quotes. Original: "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was ending, she began to fly." Google Translate Edition: "When the worms of the earth begin to fly." Original: "I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." -Kurt Cobain Google Translate Edition: "I would love to hate it." -Cobain Original: Practice like you've never won. Perform like you've never lost. Google Translate Edition: Behave like you have never done before. Pretend you never lose. Also, if you've read all this, you deserve a cookie. Or three. Here. 🍪🍪🍪 Don't let the bad grammar bug bite!
