4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters?
Well, considering my dislike of writing, my first full written story didn't come about until I was required to produce one for school, as a 13-year-old. Anyone who feels like being traumatized can read about it, and read a snippet over here, as I've already posted on the topic.
Of course, being a creative, visual sort with an overactive imagination, I was having fun with stories and characters in my head and/or playtime long before the age of 13. Assuming I can muster up the motivation, I'll touch on that a bit more in my essay for my upcoming 18th anniversary of 'meeting' t'DoL.
