TribalCat is on a distinguished road
Greetings from SoCal!

Hello, there! My name is Naomi, and it's nice to meet you all. I'm used to writing poetry and guided meditations, but I've always wanted to write a novel. I'm not sure why I put it off so long, but last October someone challenged me to write an outline for a NaNoWriMo novel. I wasn't sure I was going to go through with it, and the outline never came together, but I did come up with a synopsis and decided to go for it. I had a little trouble narrowing the scope of the book, wasn't exactly sure what genre it would fit in, but I did win, and that got me excited to try again. This month, I'm writing a fantasy novel, and it's going very well. I read some books on the craft of writing and learned a bit, so I was more prepared for Camp NaNo. Someone had a link to AW in a post, so here I am!

A TribalCat is me! It was the first character I created for an online rpg back in 1999, and I've used her ever since. She's a shapeshifter who can transform from a woman into a cute adorable cat or a fierce tiger and has black tiger stripes on her skin like a tribal tattoo. The kitty in my av is my cat, Tyger. He lets me use his pic

thanks for the warm welcome, everyone.
