In the vain hope this will help me actually finish the course this time...

The most intimidating part of my university education was heading off for my year abroad - Russia seemed so scary and distant, and I was flying there alone. However, despite some mishaps, like finding ourselves having to explain to military police why we were travelling to the Arctic circle, I ended up feeling just as safe there as I do at home!

(Mostly fact.)

I like to go running each morning, rain or shine. Exercise and a cup of coffee set me up for the day. I don't mind what the weather is doing - each season has its charms - except that if it's too hot and muggy, then I will definitely struggle.

(Mostly fiction.)

Reasons to write:

A lot of the reasons resonated with me. In particular a love of language, and it just being something I've done as long as I can remember. Writing is just the way I process the world, something I've always done and that comes naturally to me.

I seem to have regular crises of confidence and so I have several novels sitting around in various states of not being finished. The last few years I've got into fanfiction, which is a lot of fun, but I'd like to go back to writing my own original stories, too.

I'd love to publish one day, but more than anything writing is a means to stay sane!

Things I love about writing:

Making/escaping to a better world, or maybe just a different world.
Playing with language (I'm a linguist, too!)
Storytelling. I also have heard writing called performance art for shy people, which really resonates with me (I'm also a musician), because it's a solo activity, but it's also a performance, a desire to entertain.
An escape from unhappiness, or just a place to hide.

I was rather encouraged to learn Louis de Bernières wrote his first novel at the age of 35! Suddenly I don't feel such a late bloomer...
