"The good writers touch life often. The mediocre ones run a quick hand over her. The bad ones rape her and leave her for the flies." Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
Hello! My name is Lady Starflower. I am happy and rather flattered that you came to check out my profile! What an honor to meet a fellow reader and/or author such as myself!
My pen name was inspired by a verse from J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. The verse can be found below:
On silver necklaces they strung
Gosh I love Tolkien. The man is a literal giant.
Musically, I turn to video game composer and YouTuber Laura Shigihara. Her song, Jump, is one of my personal favorites. Joe Hisaishi is also phenomenal. He composed many scores for movies from the Japanese animation studio Studio Ghibli. These movies made a bigger impact on my childhood than Disney's for so many, many reasons. Other than these, artists I never tire of include Lana del Ray, Hans Zimmer, Fall Out Boy, and Sia.
Another giant I all but idolize: Christopher Nolan. He's most well-known for directing The Dark Knight and writing & directing (!!!) Inception, a masterpiece of storytelling in my opinion. His movies always leave me in awe and inspired. ("Ah, a DC fan?" You might think. Naw, I love Marvel too. That's a feud I'd rather not take sides in.)
Other incredible story-tellers that never fail to impress me: Hiromu Arakawa, the mangaka of Fullmetal Alchemist; Erik Wolpaw, the lead writer for Portal 2's story; rising star novelist Sabaa Tahirl; Sarah J. Maas, modern fantasy writer, the talented mangaka of My Hero Academia Kohei Horikoshi and Alexandre Dumas, the author of my all time favorite classic, The Count of Monte Christo.
Lastly, biggest thanks to the One Writer I will always admire. Thank you for giving me the best Book in the world, and for doing so much for me despite my many shortcomings. Thank you.
So those are all the sources that have inspired and impacted me the most. Thanks for taking the time to read through this whole chunk of information; it's probably a bit tedious for those just trying to figure out who the Starflower is, lol.
Again, thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this little anecdote on what drives me to write!
May all your stars flower!
UPDATE: April 2018
It's kind of obvious that I've been on hiatus for some time now, but I promise that once my completely packed college schedule lets up I will get back to work on some good ol' content! Things to expect; Fantasy My Hero Academia ship works, Takumi in Fire Emblem Heroes! Please keep in touch, and keep those stars flowering!
