Hello all! I'll be a freshman in college in the fall, majoring in Creative Writing with a minor in psychology. I've been writing for as long as I can remember. I'm currently working on my first novel, but most of my work is short stories. I spent the last few years in a really rigorous high school program, so I don't have that much stuff to put up for review here, but I love critiquing and reviewing, so I'll be doing a lot of that until I start polishing up some of my newer stuff. Some of my literary role models are Sylvia Plath, JD Salinger, J.R.R. Tolkien, Joseph Conrad, Kurt Vonnegut, and Chuck Palahniuk. Anyone here from the old East of the Web forums that went offline a few years ago?
