About Me and This Blog
I’m Kathrine (not Katherine) Roid, an aspiring young authoress deep in the heart of Texas. Like many, my love of books started when I was very young. My mother often read classics aloud to my sister and I, and it was no surprise when I decided to try writing my own. The result was three kiddie pages of a pioneer mystery that was closer to a comedy. I like to say my pursuit of writing truly began when I was twelve, when I took the effort to actually learn something about the craft.
Now, science fiction is my favorite genre, although I write fantasy as well. To me these genres capture the wildest, highest flights of the imagination. When I’m not writing, blogging, reading, or daydreaming, I’m probably drawing, enjoying my doll collections, or rollerblading. Take that back. Only rarely am I not daydreaming when I rollarblade.
I started this blog in January 2011 to share my knowledge of the art of creative writing. There are five main categories to my blog: on writing, how to edit, useful sites, and creative writing prompts, which receive random attention. Some of my work is specific to science-fiction, fantasy, or adventure, but most good writing advice can be spread over all genres.

I welcome comments and discussion, but I am keeping my site suitable for all ages. Comments that violate this will most likely be edited, but even removed if the case is bad enough.
