I am not a writer stereotype. Just a writer.
I am not languishing in an attic waiting for my big break. I am in college working on my undergrad in English where from then on it's a longer trek before i get my doctorate and leave with an obscene amount of money in student loans and hopefully a teaching position. I am a writer, rest assure you. Just not a paid one yet.
I am not anti-social. I am very social in fact. I am a devoted fiancee first, a daughter second and a friend third.
I am not pretentious. I read tabloids and Cosmo, for God's sake.
I am not scholarly in the least. I like the classics. I respect classics. But I like a good romance novel or whodunit. So I write it.
I am relatively sane. I can be moody sometimes, but isn't everyone?
I don't brood. I bake. As in bread. Or if i do, I indulge quietly.
I don't drink or do drugs to get inspiration. It's a given.
I am very much a morning person.
I don't mind math. It just takes a while.
No ink on my fingers. Just carpal tunnel or maybe pencil dust on my hand.
No notebook aside from the to-do list pad in my purse. Lots of pens though. And lipstick.
Not a coffee junkie. I drink a cup in the morning and that's it.
Not a chain smoker. Not even a smoker.
Not a cynic. In life I am an optimist. On a Word document I'm somebody else.
Not very musical. I sing show tunes all the time, but i'm kinda off-key. I'm not allowed to sing in the shower anymore.
I don't have an odd personality. I have lots of anecdotes about history and people and things but i'm not bizarre.
I'm not "hardheaded".
I'm a terrible liar.
What got me into writing was that i had a knack for making my day-to-day experiences sound funny. Like if I was talking about how my cat changed the speed on the treadmill, I'd begin with, "Luna should be charged with attempted homicide..."
I promise you I give nothing but my best and I am striving to write something that you will enjoy. I like to write something I would read. Wouldn't anyone else?
A word on my pennames. I used to go under my real name but then I chose Ivory Ravens before settling with this one.
