Greetings New Minions --er I Mean Friends

You know I've never been very good at introductions. My answer to "Who are you?" is usually "Me, duh. I don't have to define myself." But that doesn't help you aut very much does it? I am hardly going to be able to convery every aspect of myself on a wee little blog. Heck if I even know half of my possible facets (is that a word? Oh well. It is now)Therefore I will greet you with telling you who I am as a writer. Sicne, you know, this is a writing blog.

Mostly I write fantasy. Actually scratch the mostly. Every once in a while I get an idea that doesn't involve fighting over the rulership of kingdoms or the fey folk or dragons but once I touch my pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) magic takes over and I have another fairy story on my hands. I can't help it. I think I have pixie dust in my blood. Also never ask me to stay in one character's head the whole time. i think i have protagonist ADD. There are always so many interesting perspectives to tell a story from.

That being said I read pretty much anything and so, while I will sometimes ramble about folklore, medivial history and how novel writing is really just a continuation of the ancient art of poetry, you may also hear tangents about murder mysteries and Russian literature.

Oh and my name is Taryn. Taryn Tyler *lowers shades over eyes and looks all cool and spy like * (yeah I know, that was backwards and I don't even wear shades)

But enough about me. I want to know all about the lovely readers I will be brainwashing *ehem* --blogging for. How do you usually answer the question "Who are you?" What do you read? What do you write?

And before I go thank you Allirati for granting me access to your secret society! (oh the power mwhahahahahahahHA!)

"I think I have pixie dust in my blood." - Me too! I think all of my stories have to have some sort of magic.

Welcome, fellow newbie!! So awesome so see you here. Wait, where's your pic? Now I feel silly for posting my big face!

Um . . . I'm being mysterious? Actually my computer's acting kind of whacky so I can't upload it right now.

Glad to meet you, Taryn. I'm the same way with magic (if not fey folk). Everything I write starts normal and devolves into some treatise on magic and what are humans capable of really?

The POV thing too. I wrote a single POV once, and it was okay, but I was bored.

Wait, was I supposed to answer questions?

Eek! Taryn, you have pixie dust in your blood? I hear that stuff can clog your arteries. ;) Just dropped in to show my support! Looking forward to this new blog and learning about all of its fab hosts/hostesses. :)

It's okay, Taryn, I think we only gave you Security Clearance 3. Which means no brainwashing rays until we bump you up to 2. Should be a fast process, though. :)

I think you know all the answers to the questions you asked about me... so I will just say YAY! I'm so happy/ excited you agreed to come blog for us :)
