When someone says they are a "writer", that doesn't really paint that much of a picture, does it? I could have used a myriad of other expressions, could have positioned me as a fiction writer, a blogger, fanfic author or even a critic, and yet I chose the incredibly ambiguous term "writer".
Why? Because there isn't just one genre I call home:
So congrats, folks - you figured me out =) My goal in life is to move people with my writing and my filmmaking, bring them joy or make them weep.
Or rather, I'm fortunate enough to have figured out my purpose in life before I reached 20.
Fanfic taught me how to write. I'm serious - which is something a lot of people aren't when they talk about fanfic without knowing what it means in general and, more importantly, the the millions of writers who pour their soul onto the screen without receiving a cent in return.
What began as short stories and cracky poems has morphed into full-fledged world building. There is nothing like creating a world from scratch and filling it with compelling characters and conflict. Even better when you get to move readers with your tales!
I like talking, and I like talking about writing and films even more! Obviously I'm blogging ;) On my blog, you'll find a heterogeneous mix of things: film reviews, musings on fandom, writing techniques, how to tell stories or resp. how I tell stories, thoughts on current events, and firsthand accounts on life as a freelance storyteller.
Does slash, male/male romance in fan works, reinforce heteronormative gender stereotypes? Is omegaverse just patriarchy in its extreme? Or is all that inherently subversive? I explore these questions and more in my non-fiction writing.
