Writing Streamer Feature! NursingGeek

This incredible streamer has been writing with Stories on Fire for a few years now! She’s incredible and her streams are really chill. Below is from an interview with NursingGeek.



Iā€™m a geek, a writer, a gamer, a nurse educator, and sporadic textile arts enthusiast. Some of my current literary influences are Mary Robinette Kowal and the rest of the Writing Excuses podcasters (Brandon Sanderson, Dan Wells, Howard Tayler, and their various awesome guests, such as C.L. Polk, Aliette de Bodard, and Piper J. Drake). On the gaming side, I lean towards open sandboxes like Minecraft and character-centric story games like Spiritfarer, or else extreme weirdness combined with weaponized kindness aka GISH (the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt). LGBTQIA+ health is my passion as a nurse and nurse educator, and that tends to come through in both my storytelling and my gameplay.

I write fantasy, science fiction, and kids’ stories. I stream a combination of writing, gaming (mostly Minecraft) and occasionally other random things.

Engagement in my stream is mostly through chat and recently have added a Kappamon to greet people as they arrive in chat.

In my creative career, I don’t yet have any fiction published. Well, original fiction, that is. On the fanfiction side, I’m currently pretty proud of “This Hallowed House,” a cute story I wrote for Yuletide this year in the October Daye universe. As a bonus, other people seem to like it too.

The best part of streaming is that I enjoy interacting with people while I write or game.

Beyond Twitch, they can find me on Twitter and Tumblr at @nursinggeek

On Twitch, my schedule right now is on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday afternoons. I’m still a relative newbie, so I haven’t hit any of the notable streaming milestones yet.

She’s a must see during Stories on Fire and beyond! https://twitch.tv/nursinggeek
