Hi all, I've been lurking around this website for the past few weeks. When I finally felt the urge to respond to someone's post, I realized I hadn't registered yet! My name is Kaylyn. I'm a college student living in Kansas. I'm avid reader, and though I've already hit my twenties, I primarily read YA fiction. On occasion, I branch out into the wider world and act more my age, but not too often. I like being around teenagers, talking to teenagers, reading about teenagers, etc. I just really love YA. For the past few years, I've dabbled in writing, but I've never made a truly serious effort until recently. I'm nearly 40,000 words into my first draft of a YA novel-my summer project. I'd love to complete the first draft (75,000-80,000 words) sometime within the next couple of months. Anyway, that was a tidbit about me. I guess it's time for me to stop lurking and to be more active!
