I think it’s about time I update this again.
Hi. I’m Camila Sortica; that’s my real name. Though online I prefer to go by Blackbird, or B.B. It’s been my online persona for almost a decade and probably the name most people associate with me now.
I was born, raised, and am currently living in Porto Alegre, Brazil. I do freelance translation work for a profession, although my ideal scenario would be to make enough from writing that I’m able to do that full time. It’s a still a very long term goal at this point.
I like games, music, movies, fan fiction, cartoons, literature, and a multitude of other things I’ll end up rambling about now and then. I have weird sense of humor, I use F-bombs a lot. I rant on occasion, but for the most part, I’m just a scatter-brained artist trying to cope with anxiety and life.
I started this blog in a moment of boredom as a way to just let out some thoughts. It’s still mostly a personal blog with no set theme, though what I’ve become most consistent with over the years is writing reviews and just general opinion posts on writing and pop culture. And the fan fiction posts. I started those on a whim and they have become the most read thing I’ve ever written.
Still, this blog remains just a personal blog. I have a good number of things ongoing here that I do plan to continue, but what I do and when is gonna depend on my mood and my availability for the most part. My focus shifts a lot, my interests don’t particularly change, but my willingness to go into lengths about one thing or another changes quite a lot as well, so consistency isn’t something I can promise here. I am dedicated to whatever I decide to ramble on about at any given moment and I try to make my reviews and assessments as constructive as possible, even if it’s something I don’t particularly enjoy. Like Twilight. So I can promise that, if anything. I try to provide something humorous and constructive with my posts, even when it involves something so horrible it baffles me.
I’m not great at talking about myself, so I guess the best way to find out more about me is browse some of my posts. Whether it’s fiction or some opinionated rant, my writing is still the best way to get to know me.
Hope you guys enjoy the ride.
