Name:mrissa
Birthdate:Jul 26
Location:Minnesota, United States of America
"A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance."
To live in one of those times need not mean turning one’s back on the other.

--John M. Ford

To live is to war with trolls
In the holds of the heart and mind;
To write is to hold
Judgment Day over the self.
--Henrik Ibsen


(I'm actually a good deal more interested in fighting trolls than in Judgment Day -- and a good deal more in agreement with that part of the quote, as it happens.)

I'm a freelance writer of speculative fiction and educational materials. I have lived in Omaha, NE; Lawrence, KS; St. Peter, MN; Toledo, OH; Corvallis, OR; Concord, CA; and Hayward, CA. If you think you know me from any of those places, try me and see. I am, however, a Minnesota girl all the way through. I am in love with this state.

I used to be in nuclear physics at LLNL, but I'm recovering from that. Close call, there.

(And Livejournal is smoking crack: I do NOT live in St. Paul. I live in Eagan. Which is on the west side of the river, dammit.)

My other journal was syndicated at [profile] novel_gazing. Now I don't post there except for pictures sometimes.

I used to friend people back if they friended me and were not regularly posting about things I didn't want to read about. Lately it's not nearly so automatic on my part, but you should feel free to friend me if you like; I don't mind. Please introduce yourself if you don't have many entries or interests listed on your lj, especially if I've met you in real life and might not know it.
