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.
@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).

@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.
@grace-tolkienista Welcome! I’m into editing as well. Proofreading court documents mostly — not the most thrilling work, but hey, at least I get to flex my vocabulary 😀 What sort of temp work are you into?
