I joined Story Embers a few days ago, so I’m still trying to figure out how to use this all, but I hope that it helps me in my writing journey! I’m just going to introduce myself briefly, so here we go 😉
I am a fourteen year old girl in Tennessee. I live on less then half and acre, so I go hiking a lot to get out in the woods and let my imagination go wild, (sometimes I can almost see elves in the woods, no not really, but almost!). I love God, and I don’t know what I would do without him! My wonderful family comes next, all seven of them, though I am the Middle Earth geek of the family.:) Then, come my friends who laugh, cry, and help me in my writing! I also go hunting and fishing very often, so that help me in my writing. I’m also a proverbial weapon expert, especially if it’s a dagger, spear, sword (love my swords), slingshot, javelin, bow and arrow, well you get the picture!!;)
I am currently writing a story on an assassin, because I see the good in all story villains (only if they are lovable), especially if they have a sad past and are redeemable. Other then that I scribble on my laptop when I can about knights, evil lords enslaving people, and the least expected rising up to defend their kin and homeland.
One of my favorite talents is learning different accents, (so far I have British, New Zealand, Australian, Scottish, Irish, Russian, German, but my favorite one is Scottish!) I learn different accents so I can act out scenes from any books I read, so I’m sure most of you will understand that part! 😉
Some other things that I like to do are drawing (I do this all of the time), being the editor of a kid’s newspaper, and also being the editor of a magazine for girls. So, as you can see, I fit in writing when I can! I also dabble in film making and animating.
Well, if you made it this far thanks for reading and I hope that this goes well!

@j-a-penrose, yes I do love Tolkien! He was the one that got me into fantasy, though I can be picky about what kind of fantasy I read and write.
My hobbies are drawing, reading, writing, painting, hiking, hunting, fishing, gardening, any sport (except golf), filming, animating, and photography. *Whew* That was a lot!

Welcome! I am relatively new as well, but found it not hard to get involved. This is a very nice place!
Tolkien is one of my favorite writers (I’ve read LOTR, the Hobbit, The The Silmarillion, and the Appendices of Return of the King. I would like to read The Children of Hurin, Beren and Luthien, and The Fall of Gondolin, which it not out yet.), as are Andrew Peterson, and N.D. Wilson. I also like The Night Gardener is also an excellent book. There are many more books, but I don’t have time for that right now.
You might call Martial Arts one of my hobbies, though hobby would be understating it, so I understand your love of weapons. My preference is a re-curve bow, though a hand and a half sword would suffice.
I run a blog called TheBookshelfStaircase.wordpress. com and am the fifth child out of seven. I am 15 (going on 16 in June).
I am not an artist, but dabble in it every now and then. I am not a photographer, but would be if I had a good camera. For now I am satisfied with writing. I play the Mountain Ocarina, but am just now learning how to read music.
Published author, reader of many books, Student in writing, and Lumenite!May 25, 2018 at 3:52 pm #36181May 25, 2018 at 5:16 pm #36200
