I've recently completed my MSc Computer Science from a UK institution, and have moved back to the US to begin work. I write in my spare time, enjoy cooking, and apparently am addicted to signing up for SE sites :).

comment Why shouldn't I use a pen name?
I suspect Google+ will be the primary link between my screenname and my real name in the future. I don't make a big deal out of separating the two online - instead, I don't do things under my screenname that I wouldn't want people who know me offline to know about.

comment Why shouldn't I use a pen name?
@Standback But that's the problem. The reason I want to use a penname is that Yami feels more like my name than any shortening or expansion of my real name. If I'm not using that, I might as well use my real name :/ I wish I hadn't been such a weeaboo as a teenager, then I wouldn't be in this mess, but I can't go back in time and change that now.

Haha! I've considered changing my name but I don't match the ethnicity of my screen name so I'll probably just keep using my real name offline.

comment Author's notes: yay or nay?
A book series I very much enjoy has the bad habit of putting notes in the front. I don't particularly care what music "inspired" the book; if I was going to listen along, I'd be able to find the information just as easily in the back, and it delays me getting to the actual story.

comment How to juggle work and NaNoWriMo?
I work in CompSci, it's a security risk for me to bring in my own laptop. But I could grab a notebook and type the entry up later I suppose.

comment Less universe-specific synonyms for “squib”?
This looks promising! I'll grab a thesaurus and mull over this for a few days. Thanks!

In the world in question, it's expected that a member of a specific Tribe have at least a little affinity with the specific type of magic for that Tribe; however, I'm lacking a good word for those who do not. The same concept seems to apply here but the word woudln't be perjorative in my world, merely descriptive.
