|I'm currently writing...||
I wrote a nanowrimo novel, female 20-something protagonist living in a current-day apocalyptic setting with a virus that turns people into zombie-like creatures. The story was my way of coping with a burst bubble out of college (no jobs, no monies), and was my first take on writing a full story (probably isn’t 2/3rds finished really- I have poor outlining abilities). The zombie theme intrigues me (not as much as dystopias in general) and I did some critical research on varying types of diseases to make sure my offering was plausible.

|More About Me||
I am a science fiction geek, love computers and technology, but frantically run for the woods, garden on my balcony, or do yoga in my living room in order to bring peace to my life. I am looking to develop my writing ability and find friends who also enjoy writing. I participated in nanowrimo last year and actually won (eee!), but have not seriously written since then. I am making the effort to get back into it because it really freed my mind and helped me realize what I wanted in life.
