I am twenty-one now, and I've been writing with varying degrees of seriousness for various motives over a number of years that started around when I was fourteen or so. I often write as a form of therapy and stress relief in a way--finishing a piece is the therapy, not the actual writing of it. I take my poetry seriously and my fiction with an undecided number of grains of salt. However, I do like helping others with their work, and I feel I learn a lot more about my own methods of writing through seeing how others do their business. I look forward to sharing my love of words and sounds with you all, so we can all make ourselves a little bit better.
