Welcome to my blog! You may be wondering what poetic silliness “Northborn Sword” means. Quite simply, I’m a transwoman author trained in swordfighting. But “swordswoman” is a syllable too long for punchiness and won’t fit in my Twitter handle, so for branding purposes, it’s just “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. Look, it was north enough and I never turn up my nose at an easy slant-rhyme.
I, er, also think it sounds kind of cool.
There are others, but I’m the one who writes this blog. I occasionally write books but I’m always writing something. I actually have a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing–and I earn money with it! Will wonders never cease?
I’m on the Autism Spectrum, which I think affected me less than it did others’ perceptions of me. I was born at an undisclosed hour and location, certainly as part of a paranormal Black Ops program to trap a powerful demon in a human body, and definitely not as a hackneyed way for me to appear personal without giving away information on the Internet. Because this is the Internet.
Occasionally, when martial arts practice doesn’t consume the time my writing spares, I’m deep into tabletop RPGs. I am one of those types. When I’m not shirking my duties as a working adult, I’m hopefully asleep, though slumber and I remain uneasy bedfellows.
That sorcery many people invoke when they lie down and fall asleep in minutes? Ye Gods, I’m jealous of it!
Otherwise, my favorite food is a toss-up between pan-fried lake perch and jaegerschnitzel, and I listen to basically every genre of music but hardly every song.
