I love writing but I mainly do it for fun.
My favourite genres to read and write are fantasy and slice-of-life! I'm also getting into sci-fi and mystery, but I'm less experienced with building suspense or advanced technology.
I've been writing since I was eleven - fanfiction was the thing that got me into it, actually. Of course, I enjoyed it before but now it's something that acts like an emotional output for my thoughts. I focus on introspective thoughts and character arcs, so if you read any of my stories, descriptions and world-building may be lacking a bit (sorry about that!).
Since my attention span is short, plots hardly get fleshed out and I run out of steam way too quickly. Because of that, it's hard for me to write stories that are more than 10K words. Short stories and slice-of-life are my speciality, since anything longer will make me want to scream. I've got a bad habit of scrapping ideas when I've finished planning and have to actually write, but I love researching and getting things as accurate as I can! This particular trait makes me a bit of a perfectionist, and I'm constantly worrying about not representing something correctly/getting a topic completely inaccurate.
It can be a bit crippling at times, but the best piece of writing advice I've ever got is: get the first draft down, then worry about it later. It doesn't matter how cringey it is in your head, just put it down on paper and move on. If you don't you'll be stuck there for a while. It's like taking a test - when you don't know how to answer something, move on and come back later!
My stories will mostly be writing practice, or character studies. I don't think I'll ever post a serious story on here, but who knows...
