Hey! My name is Vercetti and I suffer from Writer's Block. Most people just call me V on other forums, so that's fine. Anyways, I'm 16 and I'm American. I'm a poker player and I've been writing for about 5 years now, but I really just started to consider myself a serious writer about a year and a half ago. I've written a lot of short stories and a few (incomplete) novels, but prose has always been my strong point rather than poetry. I write a lot of stories about crime and such because it interests me, and in doing so I have earned the nickname "The Crime Writer" by some of my other writing friends. You should also know my stories are usually dark and deep; it's just my style. If you haven't already noticed, I'm an extremely sarcastic person, so I hope no one takes anything I say to offense. I guess that's that. Perhaps I should look around the place like a good little newbie. Glad to be aboard with some people who share a similar interest.
