For far too long now, I've had a very hard time writing anything. I'm still having a hard time with it. Even now, after two sentences, I'm stopping, pausing, switching to a different browser tab, and just struggling to get the words out on the page. I want to keep trying, though. Maybe if I write all the words that keep running around in my head, they'll stop keeping me up at night.
So let's start with the basics.
I'm 26 years old.
I'm Canadian, originally from southwestern Ontario, now living in Nova Scotia.
I'm a woman, though I'm not especially feminine.
I'm very politically aware, and I'm a small-l liberal (not to be confused with capital-L Liberals. I actually vote NDP.)
I'm a feminist.
I'm somewhere on the atheist-agnostic spectrum, religiously speaking.
I struggle with mental illness, among other health problems.
I like to read historical fiction, and I have a slight obsession with Greek mythology, especially where it concerns Gorgons.
I'm a geek, and I enjoy table-top gaming. I also nerdrage over the way DnD handles gorgons (they're wrong!)
I'm a Slytherin.
I'm currently working a shitty job, but I'll be unemployed as of July 26 when the site where I work will close.
I really don't know what I want to do with my life, and I'd really like to get that sorted out before I lose my job, or at least have a general direction in mind.
Maybe if I stick with this writing thing a bit more, I'll figure something out.
