So (surprise, surprise) I'm a newbie, I love to write and I'm excited to be here In other news, I'm Brackynn, an almost-nineteen-year-old Australian Arian. I'm a classical music student at university who specialises in singing, an amateur actress on the side, and in those odd instances when I actually have free time, I write. Several of my friends are also writers, but due to my total inability to ignore a misplaced comma, I somehow became the default critic/editor of the group. I've completed several short stories, the opening few scenes of a play, and a couple of drafts of a 250-odd page novel, which I am currently in the process of ripping apart, revising and rewriting. I am also somewhat of a perfectionist. In spite of the fact that most of what I write seems to be a little twisted and apparently incapable of ending happily, when I graduated from high school my old English Lit teacher wrote on my report that I have, "a wry, quirky sense of ironic humour." So derive from that what you will. (Incidentally, that same teacher wrote across the bottom of a creative writing assignment of mine that, "There's a Mills & Boon bodice ripper in here, potentially!" I'm still not sure whether to be insulted or amused. But it's way more fun to be amused.) And I also tend to babble once I get going. I can't wait to get to know everyone here!
