I'm always looking for fun blogfests and hops to participate in, and I stumbled across this great idea over at author Stephen Tremp's website. The idea of the 'Please Allow me to Re-introduce Myself' blogfest is to give bloggers a chance to share something about themselves with the blogging community and find out more about other bloggers. I think this a great way for us to discover blogs that we might not have come across yet. Participants are encouraged to tell their readers something interesting about themselves, such as their writing and blogging experience or a hidden talent. Well, here goes.
Hi, I'm Tizzy. I'm a twenty-something graduate working full-time in a busy pharmacy in England. I like to write, although I'm generally very poorly disciplined and lacking confidence, so progress is slow. This year I'm determined to put my fears and excuses aside and get a solid first draft of my YA fantasy done.
I love reading too, and am currently working my way through a huge stack of YA novels. I also fritter a lot of time away on addictive sites such as Pinterest and Polyvore, when I'm not blogging of course. When I get the urge, I also dabble in digital art, baking, crafts and soap-making. I like to keep my brain buzzing with lots of different projects. I love to dance and I perform in shows every year, which are always terrifying and exhilarating at the same time. I've recently started going to Zumba classes as well-such a good workout for body and soul!
I'd describe myself as a nerdy hippie. I'm a fan of stuff like Star Trek, Harry Potter and The Avengers, am crazy about all animals and went veggie about six years ago. As a student of literature and philosophy I'm compelled to join in with almost any debate and recite useless facts to bored strangers. I'm also extremely forgetful and clumsy. I suspect I may have a rare form of OCD which manifests as obsessive list-making and compulsions to categorize EVERYTHING into themes, yet doesn't seem to stop me from being messy and slobbish. Somehow, despite my eccentricities I'm lucky enough to be marrying my soul-mate next year, and I can't wait!
How about you? Please feel free to join in by signing up with the linky here and posting to your blog, or introducing yourself in the comments. I'd love to hear from new writers and bloggers.
