Hey, y'all. I'm new here obviously (I'm also a master at stating the apparent ). So about me: I'm a born and bred southern girl who is currently living in Ohio (not on my choice, trust me), but I'm moving back down South next year. I'm currently a high school student, and I'm planing on majoring in anthropology (preferably forensic but physical only will work as well). About my writing: I first remember writing at the age of seven, but I've found stories that date back to when I was five, so I guess I was writing then too. I've had about a dozen poems published in the USA and a couple in the UK. However, I'm more interested in writing novellas (or novels, depending how the storyline evolves). I had one offer on a manuscript I was working on, but it didn't work out (the editor and I didn't get along at all). I enjoy writing horror and mysteries/thrillers; in reality, I'm probably better at writing mysteries/thrillers (in fact, I know I am), but I enjoy the variety and freedom that horror provides. At the moment, I'm working on a story that's primarily told in first person point of view from a serial killer. It's the kind of thing I'm good at; I did a short story once on the same general lines and found that the readers were evenly split between creeped out and happy with it. I like both those reactions. I haven't been to an active writing forum in awhile (the one I went to previously sort of died out; it was a transfer that never rooted), so I'm looking forward to being around here. So, hey.
