Welcome to my blog! You may wonder what poetic silliness “Northborn Sword” means. Quite simply, I’m a transwoman author trained in swordfighting; out of practice these days, I fear, yet trained nonetheless. But “swordswoman” is a syllable too long for punchiness and won’t fit in my Twitter handle. Thus, for branding purposes, it’s simply “Sword.”
Otherwise? I was born in the north. Less north than Canada or Greenland, but more north than the Equator and many of the things above it. A little slim, I must own, yet it was north enough and I never turn up my nose at an easy slant-rhyme.
I must also confess that I think it sounds rather… well… cool.
I am always writing something, even when I probably ought to rest.
I was born at an undisclosed hour and location. This was certainly as part of a paranormal conspiracy to trap a powerful demon in a human body. This is certainly not as a hackneyed way for me to appear personal without giving away personal lore I would rather obscure from the Internet. Because, readers mine, this remains the Internet.
Good friends have accused me of being, and I quote, “a total dork”. I wear this badge with pride while sinking far too deeply into tabletop roleplaying games. Yes, dear reader, I am one of those. Otherwise, when I’m not shirking my duties as a working adult, one might hope I should be asleep! Yet, slumber and I remain uneasy bedfellows.
That sorcery many people invoke when they lie down and fall asleep in minutes? I confess myself endlessly jealous of it!
My favorite meal? I fear I can never decide between pan-fried lake perch and jaegerschnitzel. I have some fondness for most genres of music, but classical and metal shall ever resonate most deeply within my dark heart.
