Kiera is a Medieval Studies student, reader, gamer, feminist, (aspiring) proofreader/editor.
This blog is a space for me to comment on anything that tickles my fancy, explore my thoughts and practice writing, so it is a mix of topics.
My general interests that are likely to come up:
- Books, publishing & editing
- Mental illness (I have anxiety disorders and depression)
- Academic research
- Indigenous issues
- Human Rights
My general research interests are medieval language and literature, but more specifically:
- Old Norse
- Old English
- Medieval Latin
- Anglo-Saxon England
- Medieval Iceland
My blog title comes not only from my stress when trying to write, but also being involved with activities (professional or otherwise) that involving writing. Writing is my preferred medium for communicating complex ideas and engaging in discussion, and in this medium we are totally reliant on language to express ourselves. Therefore effective communication is dependent on our ability to work with words.
