To keep this brief, I’m an ISFJ creative writing major graduating in May and slated to start my MFA this fall; I hope to go into editing but for now any temp job that comes my way I will take because a master’s degree is not free. I love reading basically any genre out there–I’ve been focused on fantasy, but I’m trying to throw in some nonfiction, sci-fi, and historical fiction because variety is the best policy. =D I tend to write fantasy as well (if I have a chance to write about selkies, I WILL TAKE IT), or occasionally contemporary with a fantastic twist. Favorite writers include but are certainly not limited to J.R.R. Tolkien, Brandon Sanderson (whom I have met in person), Kyle Robert Shultz, P.G. Wodehouse, G.K. Chesterton, C. S. Lewis, Gerard Manley Hopkins, and Agatha Christie.
Well. That was not brief. Oh well. *shrugs*April 18, 2018 at 10:13 pm #30948Sam Kowal@sam-kowal
@grace-tolkienista :O *eyes widen* You met Sanderson. You…
Storms that is cool. Unfortunately I have not done that yet.
I like to read a lot of genres, too, but mostly fantasy :D. Also, I write fantasy. Are you currently working on any writing projects?

@sam-kowal Yeah, I’m still not over it and it’s been almost 3 years. xD
Tentatively. Progress isn’t moving quickly because I really need to work on the antagonist’s motivations and machinations. Also, this one’s not really fantasy–it’s a sort of superhero story with a non-powered protagonist with anxiety, powered teens who use their powers for art/creativity instead of fighting, and probably some societal issues implied if I ever get that far in the book. xD I’m also brainstorming a piece inspired by Peter Pan and Rapunzel that will probably be some sort of steampunk (a new genre for me).

@grace-tolkienista Ok; I’m jealous of you now. I’d love to meet Sanderson some day.April 19, 2018 at 9:01 am #30975
@josiah One of the great oldies of TPS is jealous of me? My life just got a tiny bit cooler. XD I hope you can–and I’m sure you’ll be able to ask a much more significant question than my scatterbrain managed.April 19, 2018 at 11:44 pm #31130Josiah DeGraaf@josiah
Ha. TPS was a good bit ago… Those were good times. Found my first writing community there!
Heh. Maybe, maybe not. I can get tongue-tied in those kinds of situations. xDApril 20, 2018 at 11:12 am #31190
