There's Something About Cadi

I'm Cadi, your friendly neighbourhood purple dragon of indecision (every town needs one). Twenty-six years of age, assuming I've remembered to update this bio by the time you read it, I've been a YWSer since autumn 2011 (with a hiatus to handle major life upheaval between 2014 and 2017).

I'm an Real Life Adult in that Big City in the south of England (the bit where it doesn't rain all the time), where I tell computers what to do for a living. (I used to study Computer Science, helpfully defined by university admissions as "the science of computing".)

When I'm trying to avoid work, I usually find myself sat on the internet avoiding the decision of what to do with my time. (Mostly Twitter. No, entirely Twitter.) I'd love to craft masterpieces of fiction, photography, conlanguage, cookery and sketch, but that would require putting down my phone and deciding to what to apply myself.

If you'd like a review, throw me some fiction - short stories or first chapters for preference. If you want to win my heart, bring me Douglas Adams and a Tolkien conlang. Or chocolate. Chocolate's always good.


Writing, photography, drawing, conlangery, / cooking, spec fiction and puns. / Filling in profiles with poetic rhythm-ery, / 'cause that's just what I think is fun.

May you never steal, lie, or cheat. But if you must steal, then steal away my sorrows. And if you must lie, then lie with me all the nights of your life. And if you must cheat, then please, cheat death.
