About Duskglimmer

Duskglimmer was born at 12:13 on a Thursday morning in early November. If she tells you she remembers the smell of aging leaves and crisp snow coming across the mountains, she's lying. She can't remember. She imagines. Since then, she's been imagining quite a few things: what it would be like do magic, the best way to live on the oceans, how long it would take to escape duct-tape bindings and what spices would be neccesary to make dragon stew palatable. In between imaginings she went to college, studied Creative Writing and Classical Studies, and now teaches 6th-8th graders the joys of dead languages. In the future she hopes to actually figure out what it would be like to climb in a ship's rigging, and to earn her MFA in Creative Writing.


Current Obsessions: Avengers, The Hobbit, Jeremy Renner, Patrick Rothfuss, and John Green. They will probably change by the time I log on again.


Freelance Writer, Trouble maker, Firm Type 8


Too often we crave the extraordinary in life, without even learning how to cherish the ordinary first. Friend, I promise you this: if you can learn to take joy in the simple mundane things in life, the extraordinary will take care of itself, it'll be on its way, hurrying towards you. But if you skip the first part, it'll ever evade you.
