Introductions [May. 6th, 2007|01:30 pm]
The Creative Quill

Well, I guess I'll take the initiative and introduce myself.  My name is Maren.  I'm a sophomore at the University of Oregon, studying vocal performance.  Music is pretty much #1 in my life right now.  Voice (obviously) is my primary instrument, but I also play flute/piccolo, piano, Irish whistle, handbells, and dabble in a few others.

I'm also an avid reader--of all genres.  Billy Collins (poet), Sir Walter Scott, Oscar Wilde, Edmond Rostand are among my rather lengthy list of inspirational writers...and people in general.  I haven't locked myself into a genre, really.  I just write my stories.  I'm almost embarrased to admit how many WIPs I have right now.  I'm writing a collection of vignettes:  style inspired by Sandra Ciscneros, content inspired by life.  Also, a historical novel about the Easter Rising in Ireland, a YA historical fantasy (sort of), a YA time-travel, and two YA alternative/fantasy.  Most are in extreme brainstorming stage.  The historical novel is being rewritten, and it is currently my main project.

Anyway, I look forward to getting to know everyone...and your work, too.

OK, folks, there seems to be a renewed interested in this group again, so I'm going to give it another round. I need to dig out my writing books and find an assignment to post. In the mean time, please introduce yourselves.

Welcome! [Jun. 19th, 2004|12:47 pm]
The Creative Quill

[mood |creative]

Welcome to The Creative Quill!  This is a little something lillykat and I dreamed up one night while chatting on instant messenger.  It seems we both like to write but were lamenting not making the time to do, so we thought that maybe if we made ourselves a nice little community to share ideas, it might make it a little more fun.  She writes horror and I write fantasy, but all genres are welcome here.  A little later today...hopefully after some more people have joined (hey, invite some friends everyone!), I'm going to post an optional writing assignment.  Do it if you feel like it--and if you don't feel like, don't! :-)
