My name's Craig, and I've joined this forum looking to talk to others who are as interested in writing as I am. Since about six months ago I have been living in Manchester, England with my boyfriend, but before that I was in San Jose, California. I am very critical and insecure about my own writing. I pretty much think everything I write is crap and won't get me anywhere, even though all I want to do in life is write. I like writing horror stories, but none of my stories ever really turn out to be scary. My favorite author is Clive Barker, I just love his style and the whole dark fantasy genre he does exceptionally well. I like the idea of dark fantasy and like to imagine my writing is that, if not blatant horror. I have some of my writings up on my deviantart page, which I guess you will have to get through my profile at the moment, since I'm apparently not allowed to post urls yet. If you would like to add me on there, I will gladly accept and give feedback on anything you may have up there.
