Cyrl aka CyCy

Cyrl (sigh-rill), also known as CyCy, calls herself a chaotic creator since she doesn’t fit into one niche.

She blogs about different topics such as book reviews, comics, and anime movies/shows watched recently.

She writes short stories and poetry

And… she offers beta reader services via Fiverr.

She will usually create darker, or spooky, content. CyCy is a hobbyist, and her head is always in the clouds. She enjoys snacking on ramen, reading, listening to music, making weird art, and being a fan girl about anime shows, books, and horror movies.

I read poetry from CyCy and her poetry collection titled “The Darkness that Lurks Behind the Smile” in Episode #21.
