#atozchallenge -- Meet your co-host: Csenge

Sziasztok!

My name is Csenge, I am your friendly neighborhood Hungarian co-host. This is my second year co-hosting, and my 5th year in the Challenge! It has been constant fun, and I am looking forward to yet another great year.

About me: 
I am a professional storyteller and author, currently working on my PhD in Culture Studies (my area of research is storytelling in role-playing games). Most of what I do revolves around epics, mythology, folktales, fairy tales, books, and RPGs. Usually in some combination of those. I am also a game- and comic book nerd, and I watch more TV shows than I care to admit. 
To my defense: I am minoring in Pop Culture Studies.
#PhDlife

Blogs and things:

Here I write about storytelling-related things. Past Challenge themes include Epics A to Z, Weird Princesses, and Tales about Colors. 

Exactly what it sounds like: My musings on weird and unique Hungarian things. Last year's theme was "26 Ways to Die in Medieval Hungary."


Book: Tales of Superhuman Powers (55 myths, legends and folktales that featured superpowers way before comic books came along - stories with notes, sources, and pop culture references) 

Oh, and I have an Old English Sheepdog. I thought that was important.
Sometimes I crochet mythical animals. 

I am looking forward to visiting with all of you in April! :)

  4. I'm looking forward to seeing what your themes will be this year. I've been a Magyarphile for coming up on 21 years this April, and I love learning new things about Hungarian culture, history, language, and names.

  6. Hi Csenge!
    I remember your Tales about Colors theme which was about 2 years back.
    I haven't picked up a crochet hook in ages...

    1. Aww, thank you! That's a big compliment :)
      I found out that crochet is easy to pick up again (last time I did it was in first grade... until this winter break)

  8. When I have goals that involve watching Star Trek: Enterprise, I like to say #itswritingresearch! Given your areas of concentration, maybe that could work for you, too?

    Looking forward to reading more from you this year, and maybe about your sheepdog, too!

      The dog tends to show up in random posts. I'll need some new pictures... :)

  10. One of the things I plan to write about is crocheting too! I am a huge amigurumi creator and fan. In fact, I just offered one of my patterns for free on my blog, Ink & Stitches:

    http://blog.jhwinter.com/free-pattern-amigurumi-happy-sunflower/

    I'd love for you to check it out! It isn't mythological, but it is a sunflower with a face and that has magic in and of itself. I can't wait to write during this A to Z Challenge! Nice to meet everyone!
