I am a firm believer in inspiration, which means I will probably never be able to write professionally. That does not matter, however, because at least at the moment I'm happy to dabble to my heart's content. Among the things already listed above, I'm fond of assassins, thieves, con men, gays, werewolves (done the right way), opera, fan culture, regency period in England, and the little-known fantasy subgenre called fantasy of manners or mannerpunk. Also, I'm a sucker for romance, particularly if it involves a little jealousy, protectiveness and possessiveness.
FictionPress does not agree with me about the way paragraphs should be arranged on a page. Once I win the argument, I will make my work look more pleasing to the eye. I gather this is a common problem though.
This is probably more than enough of me. I'm hoping to get a lot written this coming summer 2011!
Sunday. It popped into my head during the holidays, and I wrote it in one go. Editing happened about a month later, and I simply decided it was ready for the world to see. I find myself quite fond of it.
Blind Heart. The working title was "Experiment 1". It was a test for myself - writing something for a longer time. I like to sit down and vomit everything out on one go, so I thought a little exercise wouldn't hurt. So I took some time last spring among all the studying for entrance exams and that's what came out. I had a rough storyline and names for main character before I started writing. Everything else came as I went on. This isn't very spectacular, either, but I thought it was alright.
Fractions of Fiction. These three little bits were produced on a course called the Art of Writing in high school. The reason it's nothing spectacular is that I study English as a foreign language and the point of the course was to get us writing something. The last one, about the werewolf hunter, is sort of based on something I wrote for school on 8th grade. It is also worth mentioning, that the second bit with the vampires was heavily influenced by Anne Rice, whose works I was devouring at the time.
