Annie

Hi.  I'm Annie, the resident blogger here at The Epic, The Awesome, and The Random.

I'm a high school student.  I work at a dog kennel, which has nothing to do with my career plans.  I plan to study English with an emphasis on writing in college.  My dream is to be a full-time novelist, and I can see myself working in editing or publishing.

I play tennis.  I play the piano, flute, and piccolo.  I'm in concert band, pep band, and jazz band.  I think OneRepublic is the best thing to hit the music scene ever, with The Fray, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, The Script, and other similar bands following close behind.

I love to write.  I have written two novellas, one full-length novel, dozens of short stories and even more poems.  I had a poem published in Teen Ink magazine once.  I'm currently writing my second novel (which has no connection to the first).  I'm currently seeking a literary agent.  In the past I've written about dragons, horses, princes, Antarctica, walled cities, writing itself, Icarus, foster kids, twins, Native Americans, sibling relationships, swordfights, and more.  My writing tends to fall into the sci-fi/fantasy category.

Like any true writer, I also love to read.  Like my writing, my reading falls mostly into the sci-fi/fantasy category.  High fantasy is my favorite.  I also love a good historical, dystopian, or thriller.  I'll read pretty much anything in any genre as long as it isn't strictly romance and doesn't involve too many vampires, or werewolves.

I'm an introvert (INTJ).  Others tend to describe me as "the quiet one".  My blog probably makes me seem more outgoing than I am, but don't let that fool you.  I'm comfortable with being a little quirky, if that's what society is going to call what I am.  I'm also one of "those fandom people", and count myself a member of more fandoms than is probably healthy.

Other random facts: I have a one-eyed fish named Nick Fury (I have three other fish: Loki, Gilligan, and Hiccup).  I relate to danisnotonfire videos so much that I should probably be concerned, but I'm not.  I can snap my fingers using my thumb and my pinky.  I listen to 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams' every time I clean the bathrooms in my house.  My piccolo is named Rodney (long story).  I love winter.  In my Spanish class, I go by the name Sonia.  The most-played songs on my iPod are OnRepublic's 'Say (All I Need) and 'All Fall Down', and The Fray's 'Never Say Never'.
