Salutations! I am Quirky Writer, formerly known as Homicidal Maniac, your average, teenaged, redheaded,book-obsessed, movie-obsessed, dog-loving, quote-collecting,Midwestern writer! (:D) Now, some random facts about me --
Name: Not telling.
Age: 15, but almost everyone agrees I act like I'm 30.
Location: Somewhere in Midwestern USA.
Hair color: Red
Eye color: Green
Shoe Size: 8
Weight: Typically within the general vicinity of 115 and 120.
Hobbies: Writing, reading, acting, singing, drawing caricatures of my friendswith calligraphy pens, playing with my dogs, wiggling my ears, swimming, diving, typing at incredible speeds, and teaching myself how to whistle again.
Siblings: An older, satrical brother in college, and a rude, obnoxious, immature, self-absorbed sister, who is 18 and about to leave for college, too.
Pets: A 10-year-old, German Shorthaired Pointer named Casey, a 1-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Toby, and two cats, Marcus and Reeses, who I really don't like, but my sister does.
Career Goals: I'll either be a writer or stage actor. Not entirely sure, though. Criminology fascinates me, too, so...
Writing is always going to be at the helm, I guess you could say, in my life. It's what drives me. I published a book when I was 12 (it wasn't very good, mind you, and I've improved tremendously since then) but have steered away from writing long, drippy novels. I use fanfiction as exercise when I don't want to write to my screenplays and/or plays. It keeps me in tip-top shape. (:D)
