Who is Aywren?
I have a degree in professional writing and work as a full time technical writer. At heart, I'm a fiction writer, focusing on the genre of fantasy. I have successfully completed over ten years of NaNoWriMo and currently have several online fiction projects.
WebmasterI've hand-coded websites since I first self-taught myself basic HTML back in 1998-1999. I was there for Geocities and Tripod and all those great old webhosts. However, as time passed, I moved my sites into CMS - namely WordPress - and forgot the joy of creating code from scratch. Thankfully, I discovered Neocities in 2020, and have since then been moving all my sites BACK to hand-coded HTML! Life really does work in cycles, doesn't it?
I’ve been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil. Though my style keeps developing and changing, there's definitely an anime/manga influence to what I do. I currently work on one long-term webcomic project (Wayrift) with another on hold.
I play a variety of MMOs and single player games, mostly on the PC and sometimes the Nintendo Switch. I’m an old skooler, having played since I was very young, and tend to prefer RPGs, strategy, survival/sandbox games, sims and some adventure games.Currently, my main MMO is Final Fantasy XIV, which I've been playing with no lapse in sub since 2013. I don't see that stopping anytime soon!
