I’m Elisa Romagnoli, a generally quiet, kind of awkward mixed chick with a weird sense of humor.
Who am I?
I dedicate my time to raising others up to reach their potential; bringing awareness to mental illness and mental health; loving on people; making relatable content, that you hopefully find funny or interesting; and sharing little tips that have helped me personally through the chaos that is life, writing, editing and just stuff.
What Do I Do?
I write, alot; I blog; and I edit (sometimes even direct) short films. I also create book covers occasionally, so if your story needs a little something to catch someone’s eye, hit me up!
I’m looking to get into the film industry as a film editor after some training and yada. It’s really neat to see how God’s opening doors for me.
What are some of my hobbies?
Also music, photography (check out my insta: elisalromagnoli. Short promo.), procrastinating, baking and sleeping. I can make some mean chocolate chip cookies and brownies. Maybe I’ll share the recipes someday.
What genres do I write?
Honestly, I write pretty much everything. I’ve written drama and action/adventure. I love writing sci-fi. I’ve tried out some mystery/thriller and genres like that too.
The only genre I won’t touch with a 10 foot pole is romance. I don’t have a romantic personality so it doesn’t really work for me. I love reading it, sometimes, but I hate writing it.
What Else Do You Do?
I also look to promote accuracy and diversity in fiction, across the entire multi-media spectrum. At the moment that means I answer questions about homeschooling, Christianity, and growing up in a mixed race household. If you have any questions send me an ask on Tumblr, I answer there the quickest.
What am I Working on Right Now?
Right now I’m working on my NaNoWriMo novel: We Fall Down. I’m about 65k but I made the mistake of taking a break after NaNoWriMo and I’m having trouble getting back into the swing of things.
I’m also working on To Be A Hero, a short superhero story that I started as a celebration on Tumblr for 120 followers and 2k posts. It was also inspired by a handful of prompts and some very persuasive friends. I’m eager to see how the story unfolds!
I wrote a novella last September for #JustWriteIt on Wattpad. I finished it but I want to completely rewrite it and expand on it. I feel it has the potential to be a really cool story but it’s not there yet.
What are some of my life goals?
I’d like to work on a Marvel or Star Wars movie as a film editor, I feel like that would be a really neat experience. But for the most part I want to work on more family drama films/movies.
I’d also like to be a published author at some point. It’s kind of been a dream since I was eight, a side job so to speak.
I want to inspire the next generation to have perseverance and to learn to do their research very carefully. I’d also like to inspire them to try doing things that are outside of the norm, have fun, live a little. We don’t need to fit inside boxes or circles.
I kind of want to adopt some kids and have at least one dog, a huge cuddly one, and move to New Zealand. We’ll see how that one goes.
I also want to travel a bit, not in the near future, but one day I want to see New Zealand, Switerland, Germany, Russia, Japan, South Africa, and Ireland.
