Good morning to all, I'm a quarter-aged woman from many places, currently back in the country of my citizenship - the U.S.A. I haven't been writing long, as English was generally my worst subject, and I always assumed I would fail. Nanowrimo.org helped me get started last year, and I plan on 'winning' again this year. My technique needs work, but I absolutely love to write. I've got tons of ideas, though what I see in my head is always much better than what ends up on paper. My favorite authors include Jane Austen and Haruki Murakami, and you can usually tell when I've just read one or the other as my writing (and my speech) reflect them. Just like when you watch too much 'Battlestar Galactica' in one sitting and winds up unintentionally sayng "what the frack?!" for the rest of the week. o(^-^)o I'm decent at grammar, so you may see me correcting those little things. I'm also not bad at Japanese and know a bit about the culture. I've lived in Japan, and that makes me automatically cool. j/k Otherwise, you'll see me giving my wish-I-was-a-professional point of view. Yoroshiku Onegaishima~su!
