Welcome to my Journal. I'm Dawn. I'm a young woman starting out in life and am surprised to find I'm an adult. I have a BS in Chemistry from UC Davis (with Highest Honors) and worked in the industry for about 5 years before realzing that I couldn't deal with the day-to-day of labwork. Right now I have a totally awesome, kick-ass job working in marketing for 2K Games.
I am an amatuer writer. Which is to say I haven't been published for my fiction, and I'm not really writing/submitting actively right now. I did a solid push for about 2 years, and I had some nonfiction published and some really good rejection letters for my fiction. I enjoy reading SF/F and I've been working on writing it professional. I've gotten paid to write a couple of book reviews for Locus Magazine and I have two articles published with Strange Horizons. I also did video game reviews for Primo Technology Magazine.
This journal started out as mainly a public place to my quiz results and a private journal. However, with the closure of my original blog site (G-blog), this is now my main journal. I still filter a lot of my entries so if you read and are interested, let me know, and I'll figure out what parts of my life I'm willing to share.
