My Origin Story

I’ll try to keep this short and simple.

My name is Melissa Snyder.

I am a writer. I have been composing stories since before I could write. I love research and putting all the pieces together. I love editing and rearranging those pieces into something stronger and maybe lovelier. I love spilling out my mind into words.

I am a geek of many colors – books, comics, movies, TV, LARPing, and cosplay mostly.

I am a wife to an amazing man and mom to a precocious little girl. The latter is by far one of the hardest and most surprising things that I could have ever done with my life.

I am a fierce defender of Imagination. I like to write about faith and self and emotion and society and hobbies, as well as revealing the myriad paracosms that inhabit my mind.

I am a superwoman. I am enough. I need to keep telling myself that. Over and over again.

So here is where I spill out those paper bullets of my brain. I would make one request of you: please, don’t steal them. These are extremely personal to me and I love my musings. I want them to be read and enjoyed and you are welcome to do so, but I would ask you, please, do not take them away from me.

You more than are welcome to pull up a pillow, a cup of tea or coffee, and stay a while. I hope to make you laugh, make you cry, make you think, and make you smile. I am endeavoring to write about life and Imagination boldly and share honestly. The recent posts and archives are just over there. *points to your left*

Welcome to my world, new friend!

    • I’m SO GLAD you asked! 🙂 LARP is live action role play. These are games/sessions where characters are created by players and interactions between players are done “in character”. There are usually costumes and props and all that fun stuff. There are also storytellers/game masters who run an overarching plot for characters to participate in as well as helping players to develop their own characters’ personal plot. I quite enjoy it. It’s a chance to slip into a different skin and be someone else for a while. Almost every major genre of literature and/or fandom has a LARP game in some way/shape/form. If it’s not there, we will create it. 🙂
