Hi everyone! My name is Jesse, I am 26 and live with my longtime girlfriend in upstate NY. I wrote my first book when I was in kindergarten and have been writing ever since! I have recently started taking my writing more seriously and hope contributing to this forum helps me to grow as a writer and to help others to do the same. I write short stories mostly, have attempted writing a screenplay with my very creative and hilarious girlfriend but that was put on the back burner for now. I have also written a few songs and have performed them in multiple bands throughout the years, touring the country once in awhile and playing only the seediest of seedy dives. My favorite book is "Confederacy of Dunces" and I like all genres of fiction except most historical fiction. My favorite author is Kurt Vonnegut (RIP). Obviously I am a long-winded urm, windbag so I will end this now!
