Information on the Craziest Person on My Side of the Mississippi
I'm a typical 23 yr old college femme, always feeling a little harried and definitely looking forward to summer each year. I love to write, but I never really wrote anything for other people to see. Now I've decided to step out and let others help me. The dissertation will be here before I know it, so some constructive criticism on general writing abilities is good preparation.
I'm a Southern girl with a Southern attitude, and it definitely shows. I consider myself to be an intelligent, educated being who tries to be respectful and considerate of others. (The only thing I won't be respectful of is the Chicago Manual of Style. It really pisses me off.) I am interested in reading, music, very few television shows, and my family. Did I mention reading? A good book is my own personal version of 'lighting up' and I would read professionally if I could. I'll give any story a chance; romance, sci-fi, historical fiction, fanfiction, essay, rant, anything as long as it has a decent word or two in the prose. Poetry is a little more delicate of a subject; I like poetry, but I find myself incredibly judgemental on poetry so I steer away from most of the genre.
I love anything that has to do with Jane Austen, Joyce Carol Oates, Stargate, X-Files, Sex and the City, Smallville, Inuyasha, Naruto, Samurai Champloo, and my new favorite show Burn Notice. I also enjoy writings on culture, history, religion, personal freedoms, and anything humorous or satirical.
I love my parents, my two sisters (and now two step-brothers!), and my favorite aunt. They are just about the only people who matter to me except my boyfriend. I'm also a huge supporter of the military; my daddy was a soldier and my sister and step-brother are too. (But I don't like Bush!)
I love anime, and I consider myself a closet nerd. Outside of my house I am a normal college girl, but at home I watch anime and play video games. Most people think it is one of the weirdest things ever to see me change my personality when I get around the few people I am comfortable with. I am currently heavy into Naruto (not the American version) and Kenshin. New animes are fun to see! I don't write fanfiction for notice or for attention, I write for the fun of it and to get the ideas out of my head. I have good plot bunnies that never develop into big rabbits!
A few little facts about the authoress: I speak 4 languages, love frogs, smoke like a chimney, and I can actually remember how to do the Macarena.
