Ok. I'm a fairly normal girl with a sizable imagination.
I am 19, British, and a university student studying English with Creative Writing.
My three main interests are: Writing, Reading and Horror Films.
With regards to writing, I am apparently rather competent, though like many young people my self-esteem is six feet under seventy percent of the time. I tend to write fantastical stories, sometimes humourously phrased, with mysticism (by which I mean incomprehensible plots) and the macabre. I have yet to complete anything major though, so I have little idea of who I really am as a writer. I am never short of ideas though. Now I just need to work on the discipline...and plotting...and character...*sigh*
I'm a voracious reader. Unfortunately I can easily buy/acquire books a lot quicker than I can read them. The queue currently stands at about twenty-eight books. I like most things I read, so a fair amount of them will end up on my list of 'favourite reads'. I sometimes toy with the idea of writing reviews, since I'm rather analytical and will eloquently rave about my most recent book in an attempt to get my siblings or parents to read it. I have a weakness for eighteenth century novels, particularly the Gothic. It's kind of a guilty pleasure.
I love watching horror films, though I must admit I have become something of a snob in recent years, due to the dwindling number of good horror films I have not seen. I have a passionate hatred for shot-for-shot remakes. It just seems lazy and uncreative. The downside to watching so many horror films is that finding something that really scares me (and doesn't just make me jump or disgust me) is more difficult, since I know the cliches and SFX never look so good after a couple of years.
Here on Gaia you'll usually find me in the Word Game forum. I tend to post in character, so if you want to get to know me PMs are the way to go. I don't bite.
