My name is Emily Olson (obviously), I'm 20 years old, and I plan to write a lot of books. I mean a lot of books. Even a few comic books. I'm an artist too; my art can be found at Anavar on deviantArt.
My current main project is a webcomic called Unbound. It's about a girl named Nymph who, along with her mysterious shapeshifting glowing blue usually-invisible-to-other-people companion, travels to other worlds and other times. It doesn't have many pages so far, and ever when it does it may not seem terribly interesting, but the point of the comic is practice. I've seen so many people improve artistically by drawing comics, so I figured it was worth a shot.
Here's a picture of me with a book when I was three. I always loved to read. I loved writing too, even before joining Neopets (which inspired me to write in earnest). In grade 3 I wrote a little story about a girl who wanted a cat. In grade 4 I read The Lord of the Rings (and understood it!)
....I really have to stop bragging. XD
My favorite genres are fantasy and science fiction. Very rarely will I even bother to read a book that doesn't have a scrap of either in it, let alone like it. Of the real-life type, my favorite is Look Through My Window by Jean Little. Of the books that I really enjoy reading, I have too many favorites to list here. I think I'll put a topic in the forums for that.
Other favorites of mine that I feel like mentioning are:
TV shows: Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Doctor Who, Journeyman, Firefly.
Music: soundtracks from movies and tv shows. I have a lot of these.
Sound effect: vworp vworp vworp.
I also collect maps, notebooks, feathers, pens, coins, superhero stuff, calendars, and dragon figurines.
