Author has written 3 stories for Young Justice, Alcatraz, and Flashpoint.
Hello :) Finally set up an account of my own after shamefully lurking for several years. Not a serious or overly frequent writer, tend to write the stories I would like someone else to write but no one else has, or gapfillers because I believe there could and should have been more fluff in that scene!
Some things about me:
I'm most commonly known as Haylz.
I have the most horrific case of short-sightedness, but hate wearing my glasses.
I love creative writing, but dropped English at school in favour of science.
I love music to death; I sing (badly), play clarinet and know every single song in my iTunes library.
I'm studying Forensic Anthropology at university and everyone thinks I'm insane. But I will agree it is a tad creepy.
I'm a part-time swimming teacher (love this to death too) and babysitter - love kids!
I've recently taken up skydiving!
Random quotations I like:
"People who fight fire with fire usually end up with ashes."
"The spectator sees more of the game."
"The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook."
"A clean desk is a sign of a cluttered desk drawer."
"If you love someone, set them free. If they come back set them on fire."
I mainly obsess over TV shows. And once I am obsessed, I am usually a die-hard fan, though sometimes a show will deteriorate or evil writers will kill/ruin my favourite character (I HATE it when they do that!) and I will lose interest :( Fandoms I obsess/have obsessed over include: Torchwood, CSI: Miami, Flashpoint, Avengers, Numb3rs, Terra Nova, Alphas, Body of Proof, Grimm, Nikita, Doctor Who, Spooks, Lord of the Rings, Luther, BBC Sherlock (AMAZING), Merlin, The Vampire Diaries, Alcatraz, Robin Hood, White Collar, Avatar, Spirited Away, 24, The Sarah Jane Adventures, TMNT and pretty much anything to do with superheroes so X-Men, Batman, Superman, the works... I’m sure there are others, I just can't remember. And I’m also a really big fan of gameshows! I usually get really soppy if someone nice wins a lot of money… haha. My favourite gameshow is The Chase :D
Jeez, you almost wonder why my homework never gets done…
I am also I huge believer in and lover of constructive criticism. This may sound weird, but I like when faults in my writing are picked up and someone tells me - I can do better next time! I firmly believe that if you are going to review someone's work your review should be positive and pick up on the good aspects of the story but similarly mention things to improve on. Don't be afraid to be a little nasty - it definitely pays off in the long run :)
Oh, I'll also explain my pen name! To be honest I just have a thing for remembering fancy/unusual words so that I never use! Anencephalous: characterized by partial or total absence of a brain. Pretty appropriate, ha!
Take care of yourself!
