Hi. My name is Dee. I've been in love with the idea of being a writer since I was itty bitty... but my love for writing comes in fits and starts. I'll dedicate months of my life to obsessively writing, unable to stop, and those months tend to hurt my own ability to keep my life stabilized. Then I'll go years without writing... but constantly thinking about writing. I've given up the dream too many times to count... but I keep coming back to it.

Can't stop. But the fear of failure keeps preventing me from continuing.

Fortunately I'm young, and determined, and am armed with new knowledge about Executive Function disorders. I has one. Which at first was horrifying to learn but now is AWESOME because it comes with actual manuals on how to take control. I've been writing pretty consistently (and balancing it with obligations such as my job and a second, going-well-so-far attempt at earning a degree) for the past two months. Now that I've gained some confidence in my ability to balance writing with keeping myself afloat, I've decided to up the accountability factor by joining this community. I'm doing things a little out of order because I found it through a NaNoWriMo post about the 2 year novel-writing course... for which I've already done the first assignment, and I've popped my head into the chat room/s a couple times. So I thought I'd introduce myself.

I write young adult fiction (for now... as I only really started to go through my own coming-of-age journey, quite a bit later than... pretty much anyone I know... this is what I'm writing for the time being). I like sci-fi, fantasy, and absurdity in general. Right now I'm working on draft 2 of my NaNoWriMo novel, collecting ideas for short stories, and contemplating actual action plans for being published within the next two years (which would actually mean it's not too late to be a published author by the time I'm 25... xD).
