This is me. My name is Mariella Cecilia Hunt, and I'm about to sum up pretty much everything that I have written in my LiveJournal (personal life ramblings) blog. So that you know who I am.
I'm an aspiring writer. Writing is like breathing to me. I need to write, or edit, or read someone else's story---do something writing-related or else I will probably go insane.
My main genres are fantasy and mainstream fiction, but I am hoping to try historical fiction sometime. That'll take the research, that's for sure. But it'll be quite the challenge. I can't wait. But. I can't let myself write any more novels this year (2009) until I have edited two others that are already completed: The Slaying of the Shadow and How To Find a Vampire. Both titles could be changed at any time, but right now I'm content with what I have.
For Christmas or my birthday this year I am getting a copy of The Writers' Market 2010, and while editing novels, I'll start sending out query letters. Or learning about said letters. Fun. Now you get to follow my journey!
I'll answer a question before you even ask it. Why do I have two blogs---a Blogger and a LiveJournal? Well, I'm trying to write short stories to put on this blog to prove that I can write...and also, I'm trying to keep this blog on the topic of publication. My other blog is more personal for my closest friends, a lot of posts there will be private.
I don't know if I can handle two blogs. Let's see over time if I eventually switch over here entirely. But I like my LiveJournal blog. *weeps*
I've won NaNoWriMo '07, '08 and '09. The latter I wrote 100,000 words for.
I'm also Christian---Roman Catholic, to be precise. I keep a prayer journal and write letters to GOD every night. I write about what happened, I write down prayer intentions from friends and family, I spill my heart out. So if we get well-acquainted enough I'll probably write about you. If we don't, I probably will anyway. What do you want to bet you're already in that journal? :)
