About Demeter

Hi, I’m Demeter! I got my name from the musical Cats, not the goddess, although she’s quite cool too.

I’m twenty-three and I study translation in university. I like hot chocolate with whipped cream. I like to rap sometimes. But please don’t tell anyone.

I love cool earrings and colourful nail polish. I love travelling and seeing new places, especially if those places make me feel like I’m in a Jane Austen book.

I discovered YWS in May 2008 when I was looking for a site to post stories and get comments. I’m really glad that I did, although nowadays I don't really post any of my own writing. I am working on a novel though!

My favourite book is the Catcher in the Rye and my favourite film is the Lion King, which you probably never guessed!

I also like fluffy baby seals. ^_^

When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.
