Hello, My name is Jelle, alias "Dark soul". Yes, sounds silly, doesn't it. "Probably another one of those emo young teenagers set on nagging our ears off!" No worries, it is just an unimaginative nickname I invented when I was young, and very much into videogames. I never quite got rid of it, although "Sudor" is a name - or a role, rather - I assume occasionally in fantasy contexts and roleplaying. But I'm wandering off-topic! It will probably happen more often, although I can be very concise when the need comes. So, who am I, if not the brat struggling to reach puberty? In essence, I am a Belgian student in Dutch and English Linguistics and Literature. Writing is a major hobby of mine, although my experience is very limited. My studies already reveal my passion for both linguistic topics as writing techniques and literature on the whole. One thing that may yet prove to hold me down in my literary aspirations within this forum (because outside it, I write in Dutch as well), is that English isn't my mother tongue. Nonetheless, I appreciate English as least as much as I do Dutch. Though this is my first post here, I am already very thrilled to be a part of the forum's memberlist. I snooped around a bit, and what I saw excited me to no end. Several sections caught my attention. The language topics, the literature topics, the writing topics, the reviewing topics, the roleplaying... a mere glance at those divisions and I already feel at home! As for activity prospects, I can't guarantee to visit every day, but whenever I have the time, I will surely drop by, leave a reply here and there and occasionally post something of my own. I have recently started a story, after suffering from a few-month writer's block. But I am very insecure about language and style. If I don't let parts of my story be reviewed now and then, I will end up re-evaluating and adjusting the beginning, never quite getting it to my liking... Enough rambling. I know long posts are dreary to read, especially when they're about so dull a topic My apologies if I already bored you! Looking forward to participating in the activities!
