Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all : ) My name is Phil. I'm in University, studying French Language and Literature. I write in my spare time for fun. I've been working on a novel, although currently it's on hold. Recently I've been writing short stories. I am in a stage where I'm still experimenting with genres, so I cant' really say I belong to a genre or have mastered it : P. I like fiction, science fiction, postmodern transgressive lit and horror though : P I won't go to list all my favourite authors, but I guess 5 favourites off the top of my head would be : A. Huxley, J. Kerouac, D. Coupland, W. Burroughs. and J.G Ballard. I have been thinking of joining a writing forum community for sometime, mostly to talk with other writers about tips and ideas (I don't know anyone else who writes in my daily life). So, pleased to meet you all. Phil.
