It’s a good question, one that I’ve been asking for at least 35 years now. I probably was asking it sooner than that, but I don’t remember much of my own thought process from when I was that young.
Who I am isn’t what I do. It isn’t my name; though that is Eden. And “what I do” is write and think up stories and worlds and characters. I’m also a mother, a housewife, a former ISP helpdesk worker and jack of no trades.
I’m curious about almost everything. Everything, really, if presented well. Poor presentation, such as a hostile attitude or really poor grammar/spelling can turn me off very fast. Though even those things can be done right. Emergence is an example of the later. Much of George Carlin’s comedy could be considered the former (may he rest in peace).
Still, those things are a place to start if you are as interested in the journey I am taking to understand myself through my writing and my stories. Here is where the “not so finished” products will grow and evolve, taking on lives of their own as so many of my stories have. And as most living creatures, there is death. Most of the pieces I post here are dead ones, ones that I remember fondly or, like Nature itself, I am breaking down into usable fragments to boost the fertility of new works.
And THAT might be the best description of myself that I have to offer. I am, in one of the mythos I developed for my stories, Kymele des a Lo’ra – she who is given by the world and has brought it forth through herself. It fits. And if you have access to Facebook, you can read more on why here.
