The Basics

Name, and/or nicknames: ABN. Real name under flock.

(If anyone's curious, I picked the name when I was a teenager. I realize it looks silly now, but it just... stuck.)

Where do you hail from? Central Maryland. I don't care about the Ravens. I do love crab cakes, though!

Age: Early 30's.

Do you have a blog or website? LJ is pretty much my blog. I did attempt one many years back.

Do you have any other accounts you'd like to be followed on? (tumblr, DW, etc.) I'm author_by_night on DW as well, so you can add me there.

Writing Specific

Generally speaking, what do you write? Some fanfiction, though not as much as I used to. I'd say mostly vignettes and short stories. I also write personal essays. I would love to eventually finish a novel. I also blog, if you consider LJ blogging.

Are you working on any projects? Short stories I hope to compile into an anthology. I'd love to write a proper start-to-finish novel, but that doesn't seem to be my style.

Do you post any of your writing on LJ? Definitely! Including "drabbles" and character sketches, since I don't really know where else to post those.

Have you ever been published? A small local publication.

General Interests

Name up to five favorite works of literature: Things Fall Apart, The Importance of Being Earnest, the Harry Potter series, Persepolis.

Name up to five favorite TV shows: Parks and Recreation, Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 30 Rock, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Name five favorite movies: Secondhand Lions, Legally Blonde, Planes, Trains & Automobiles, Hidden Figures.

Are you in any fandoms? Not heavily involved, but I dabble in Harry Potter, Firefly, Parks and Recreation and Buffyverse.

Other Interests: History, genealogy, human rights, mythology/folklore.

Livejournal

Public, semi-flocked or staunchly Friends Only? It's pretty Friends Only anymore, although largely because I just automatically flock everything. I miss the days when half the people I knew could barely turn on a computer and I didn't have to worry about my boss finding my LJ.

How often do you post? It depends, but a few times a week, often once a day or once every two days.

What do you typically post about? Writing (not my writing specifically, but the general art of writing), social commentary (I've tried not to be too political, though), social MEDIA commentary, blog posts about various things I'm thinking about. I also work with kids, many of whom have disabilities, so posts relating to that often crop up.

Anything else? Nope!

The Basics
Name, and/or nicknames:
Ally.

Where do you hail from? Connecticut, USA.

Age: Thirty-one. -__-

Do you have a blog or website? Yes, I do! I don't have a website for my personal writing, but I run Worldsmyths, which is a forum for fantasy writers/readers. It's been open for almost a year now and it has a small, active community. We're currently having a custom library site (think something like a way more updated version of fanfiction.net) that will hopefully be ready soon.

Do you have any other accounts you'd like to be followed on? (tumblr, DW, etc.) Um...I have a Dreamwidth account that I've been using to crosspost onto LJ, just to get into the habit since even more of my friends have migrated over to Dreamwidth and off of LJ. I'm JediKnightMuse on Dreamwidth, too.

Writing Specific

Generally speaking, what do you write? Fantasy. I'm terrible at narrowing down the classification of my stories but they always have a lot of magic in them and usually royalty of some kind. I call it sword and sorcery/high fantasy, but I have no idea which of those my writing really falls under.

Are you working on any projects? Yes, a project called Storms of Magic. It's about two mages who are queen's guards and best friends. One of them gets accused of murdering the councilman of a neighboring kingdom and the other decides it would be a good idea to break him out and send him into hiding. And...other...things...happen. I actually don't have a ton of the main story written despite having been worked on it since the summer, but I blame school for that.

Do you post any of your writing on LJ? Not as often as I used to...largely because most of the time when I do post my writing to my LJ, no one really comments. (At least, that's what I've noticed lately.) I have [livejournal.com profile] jediscribbles which is a community I made to post my writing but I haven't updated it in a long time.

Have you ever been published? Other than for a school newspaper...nope, sadly.

General Interests

Name up to five favorite works of literature: To Kill a Mockingbird, The Catcher in the Rye, Harry Potter series (that can count as one, right? :P), Graceling by Kristin Cashore, Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier.

Name up to five favorite TV shows: Firefly, Supernatural, I Love Lucy, Gilmore Girls, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Game of Thrones. (I did six. Shhhh. :P)

Name up to five favorite movies: Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (I love all three original trilogy movies, though, plus Rogue One and The Force Awakens), The Wizard of Oz, Titanic, The Princess Bride, Labyrinth.

Are you in any fandoms? Depends on how you define "in." It's been a LONG time since I've really participated in any fandoms (i.e. fan fiction, icons), and I don't do that any more. I do like role playing Star Wars but I've pretty much retired from role playing, I think.

Other Interests: Photography, graphic design, web design, reading.

Livejournal

Public, semi-flocked or staunchly Friends Only? Friends only.

How often do you post? Depends. Sometimes I can go a week without making a post, sometimes I can post two or three or more times a week. It depends on what's going on and whether I have anything worth posting about.

What do you typically post about? Real life (sometimes work- I don't as often as I used to- friends, family, school when it applies), pets, photography, writing, online stuff...reactions to movies, sometimes TV show reactions.

Anything else? Um...not that I can really think of.

I've recently been thinking about putting a poetry chapbook together and there's an original fiction anthology about architectural horror I'm currently brainstorming for.

Do you post any of your writing on LJ? I used to post my fic to lj, but it just got to be more hassle than it was worth to crosspost. But I guess I do post some stuff on lj, on fest/exchange comms and [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic.

Public, semi-flocked or staunchly Friends Only? Atm public, but I have vague plans of making it semi-flocked at some point in the future.

How often do you post? A couple times a month to a couple times a week I guess. I am certainly not consistent at all lol

What do you typically post about? It's a lot of fic exchange letters and memes atm, but I do try to do the occasional personal post. I should probably work on doing more of that...
