My name is Ensier Evinter. I am gender fluid, and I come from the kind of place that requires escapist tendencies from those who wish more from the world than it has given to them. My particular brand of escapism came in the form of literacy. In my earliest years, I settled for reading the worlds that others had written, until, eventually, I found that I had created worlds inside my own head that I wanted to express. I was not as artistically talented as some, though I wanted to be, and drawing and painting were not things I could lose myself in. The only way accurately portray the people and worlds I saw, it seemed, was to write them, painting the scenery and characters using words. That is how I saw it: Painting with words.
