Hey there, I'm just a 17 yr old, writing for fun. I'm more of a painter than a writer, and I think you can see that in my style. I love playing around with words and their total effect, which is why I like so many of the Beat poets, including Allen Ginsberg. Most of what I write is taken from personal experiences, or inspired by the city. I'm currently working on a novel, I think. I've never written one before, and most of what I write is so much shorter that I'm afraid I'll give up half way. I decided to join this site as a way to keep myself going. writersock.
