In the darkness I wander,
For what purpose exactly....
Why it is rather somber,
For these reasons are rather deadly.

Light provides no cover of stealth,
thus it serves no aid for plans made.
It is more of a case of wavering health,
Truth be told...in its presence I might fade.

For thou has no infliction,
of person or otherwise.
It embitters me in addition,
that you move to condemn me with lies.

For the night is mine, and the day your course,
A sinner am I, hidden in the shadow of thine’s tainted force.
The Shadow of a Winged One

It was originally an English assignment, but I felt like I needed to post SOMETHING so that people are aware of my existence.

Just try and guess which Halloween 'creature' this sonnet surrounds. And no, I don't favour the typical narrative they have in literature in general....

especially in YA Fiction (ie.Twilight Lovely Shoujo (Total shock) [V4] )

Seems you've found me....stay for some Timmies, eh?

I am many things (as most people are). I am a writer, a storyteller, and artist, musician, etc.
I love to create, as well as laugh with people and share words with others.
My Nationality is Canadian, and in case you are even more curious, I am of German (Prussian) and
Dutch descent, of the (Liberal) Mennonite variety.

Interests
I was tagged by :iconunraveledtruth:

Rules:
 1.) Answer the questions.
 2.) Tag two people.
 3.) 
Have fun! Make the answers long or as short as you like.

~~

1. When did you discover you enjoyed writing?

Entering High school (aka Grade 9), I discovered that I loved using words in ways that differed from other peoples' writing. This was further proven when I started getting really good grades and feedback from my English 9 teachers, and it bolstered my confidence a great deal; it also further encouraged me to continue writing what I wanted.

2. What are your strengths in writing?

Details, details. Describing the thoughts of characters and the scene around them, for example. I love to describe things in ways that aren't always displayed in such a way, but I like keeping things realistic as I can.

3. Your weaknesses?

Writing dialogue. I get so frustrated because usually, I know exactly where the conversation or interjection or whatever else is supposed to happen happens, but I can't write the darned thing. Also, putting ink to paper/handa to keyboard is extremely hard, since my mind wanders fast enough to lose momentum with ideas I want to write.

4. What is your favourite genre to write in?

Humor, Suspense, and Angst. I would love to become profficient in writing fluff, but I usually fail trying to do so.


5. Do you consider yourself a good writer?

Good, but not great. I appreciate the art and that I am better at it than most, but I wouldn't go so far as to toot my own horn about my skill level. I still have so much more room to grow.

6. Do you like to let a lot of people in real life read your work?

Not usually, it really depends on whether it is an assignment or if its a personal piece/fanwork. I am very self-consious with my writing, as I see it as a private part of my world that I can experience and enjoy.

7. How often do you write?

Sporadically, aka NOT ENOUGH. My inspiration is rarely on fire, so when I do write, it often leads nowhere or turns into a one-shot. Onion Boy 6 

8. Who are your favourite authors? Why?

Ack, lets see how consistent my favourtism is...Rainbow Rowell, Francine Rivers, Jodi Picoult, and Bryan Davis.
Traits that I love in authors and their writing styles: The ability to realistically portray hard situations that occur in this world, their overall stynax and style of writing, and the ability to pull me in no matter the setting or the characters.

All of these authors display these characteristics in different ways, which makes each and every one of them compelling and interesting to read.

9. Do you have any OCs? If you do, describe your favourite one.

AH. This question. I've been waiting.

Her name is Winifred Laurer, and she is currently 32 (b. 1982). She is ethnically Danish, but was born in Frankfurt, Germany. She is well known by friends and family by her well loved/worn munich football jersey and her witty running commentary on the mundanity of everyday objects. Winifred is trilingual, speaking German, Danish, and later English.

She's a bit of a troublesome person, always testing the boundaries set around her, but she usually just has very curious and honest intentions. Toeing the line between social and antisocial, she blends into the background and reappears depending on her mood, and loves the sound of other peoples' voices over her own, though she can talk a fair bit herself.
She is not an assertive type, but is content with finding her own way by following another's set example.

(orz I went a bit far there, sorry)

10. If you write fanfics, for what fandoms do you do so?

Axis Powers Hetalia, Kingdom Hearts, Naruto, Free!, etc...

I KNOW I DON'T POST ANY OF IT. 

11. Do you perfer writing by hand or typing?

Typing, as it is easier and more accessable to me than both pen and paper together.

12. Are you a huge critic when it comes to writing?

If it is my own work, yes. If it is another's, I am more lenient but I drop reading certain works because the writing style throws me for loops or disinterests me. So, I guess you could say yes, but I am a huge softie and it doesn't take much to sway me (lol).

13. What format do you most like to write in? (Prose, short story, poetry, vignettes, etc?)

Poetry and short stories. Poetry is my go to method, followed by one-shots/short stories. I haven't been inspired to write really long works for a blue moon, but I would very much like to.
