First: I've got two more weeks of school before my winter break, so I'm going to say now that I won't be around much then.  HOWEVER once exams are done I somehow have an entire month until I come back to Toronto for the winter semester, so I'm going to spend that month getting back into Deviantart and revamping things a little bit.  Every journal I write says something about my lack of activity these days, but I've got the itch to get back into the short story game.  I have a sci-fi one inspired by Cosmos that I'd like to finish up when school's done, so when you see something called The Fourth show up in your inbox, that means I'm back for a while.

Second: I said I was doing NaNoWriMo this year, but in reality I didn't write any more than I usually do and only ended up adding 15 000 words to the 17 000 words I already had of a sci-fi novel.  I'd still like to finish this one, but it's going to be at my own pace.  I don't think I'm going to give NaNoWriMo a serious try unless I know I have an uneventful month ahead of me, because I really need to be able to sit down for a few hours every day to get something like that done, and right now I know that I don't have the time for it.

Third: I'm still a reading machine.  I'm at 61 books this year now.

Fourth: School is awesome.  Part of me wishes I went to college first instead of university, because the hands-on approach here is a lot more effective than all of that theory.  I learned a lot in university, sure, but it didn't really prepare me for any kind of job like this program is doing.  I wish they'd given us some better resources in high school (back in the day) because I thought the only choice I had in life was having global warming shoved down my throat.  I know if I did college first, I'd probably be working right now and my debt to the government wouldn't be as staggering as it is now.

Fifth: I hope all is well with you guys, I feel like I'm a little out of the loop around here.  What's new?  What's happenin'?  What are you kids up to these days?

Is that the end of the world, or are you just happy to see me?

I'm a 22 year old civil engineering student puttering around somewhere in Canada. I just finished my BA in Geography and that's probably the direction I'm headed in, but there's something I'd rather be doing. I love writing about dark, gritty things, and you would never guess it from seeing me in person. I've written 15 novels and also have 2 novellas to my name. My favorite topics to tackle are: the apocalypse, space travel and military fiction. I got the gift of writing and love of the strange and obscure from my dad's dad; born in 1911 Russia and who believed aliens walked the Earth.

I also (used to) blog about music at: It's more of a casual hobby, and practice for writing for Rolling Stone.

But who am I outside of writing? When I'm not in line at Tim Hortons, trying new nail polish shades or buying 5 books at a time at Value Village, I'm just a somewhat-normal girl navigating through my twenties. I'm Scottish, Irish and British on my mom's side, and Russian Mennonite on my dad's side. Fate made me the oldest of 3; I've got a younger sister and brother. I need 4 things to function on a daily basis: coffee (one sugar with soy milk), The Simpsons, an hour to myself to read a book (a good YA or Stephen King), and a playlist that never ends.
