My name is Ryan and I'm from Northern Virginia. I'm a writer, as well as a gigantic nerd. I also participated in the 2010 NaNoWriMo Challenge, and I won (started 8 days late, finished two days early,) and I continued to work on my novel all throughout December, finished it, and edited it from January to June. I just received my proof copy today, and I'm going to be asking for reviews on that from my friends. And I've already started my next project. I'm....ambitious. I'm excited to be a part of this community, and I hope that I can maybe make some friends or pen-pals on here.
