Hi! Welcome to my little corner of Gaia. You can call me Tanabata, or Tana, or Wish....or anything. I'll answer to pretty much whatever. I'm 23 years old and I live in the middle of nowhere with my husband, our daughter, and a doberman named Journey.
I love to write, and I've been taking it seriously for about 9 years now. By that, I just mean that I've actually been trying to write decent stories and actively improving my craft as opposed to just dribbling words on paper, which is what I was doing before razz Right now, I'm working on a dystopian YA trilogy about assassins. It's...a lot better than it sounds, I hope. I hate describing my stories in just a few sentences. It's impossible. And I'm in the planning stages of a webcomic that may or may not be started this winter sometime. We'll see. I do writing critiques for people sometimes so if you're looking for feedback, you can PM me about that. Just be prepared for the truth. I'm not one of those super-nice, sugar-coat-everything kind of people.
I'm also an artist. You can find a gallery with some of my work here. I love doing art for people here on gaia, so if you are interested in commissioning me, just shoot me a PM and we can discuss it. I've been drawing ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil, and finally caved in a year and a half ago and bought a tablet so I could do digital art. Best decision I have ever made. It's given me a whole new sense of creativity and enjoyment in my art, which I seemed to have lost for a while there. I love it. I still have a lot to learn, but I'm enjoying the journey.
I Love *All kinds of music, but generally rock/alternative type stuff. My favorite bands are: Linkin Park, 30 Seconds to Mars, and Escape the Fate. *Art. All kinds of art, all styles, all mediums, everything *Big dogs *Tolkien *A Song of Ice and Fire series *Good books in general *Watching movies (though I am a little picky when it comes to defining them as 'good') *Meeting new people and chatting *Japanese food *Mexican food
I Don't Like *Horrible books that everyone raves about like they're amazing (*cough* Twilight *cough) *Racist people (personal issue, long story) *Being told what to do *Rhubarb *People who think all big dogs are vicious killing machines *Cleaning my house
Ok, II'll stop there. If you want to get to know more about me, just talk to me. I promise I don't bite ^_^
All art in this gallery was made by me. To see more of my work, you can visit me at deviantART, where I go by the username FadedDreams5
