Who Am I?

When I first joined fanfiction.net nearly 10 years ago, I was a high school student. Now I am a college graduate and a soon-to-be PhD student. I'm not a professional fiction writer, science being my discipline. My scientific interests provide a scaffold for sci-fi ideas but for the most part the skills involved in scientific writing are quite different to fiction writing.

Why Do I Write Fanfiction?

I write fanfiction to try develop my fiction-writing skills, and also use it as a creative form of self-expression.

What does ClockworkScales mean?

To this day nobody has asked this, but that's probably because they suspected the truth: it has no meaning. Two words were jammed together for circumstantial reasons not worthy of scrutiny. The anonymity is also nice.
