Hello all. I'm 20 years old, I'm currently a student studying Journalism, English and Creative Writing at University. I've been milling over my life choices a lot lately and I've always been in the mindset that creative writing was not a good way to earn money. I was content to have it is side subject in my studies, which I throughly enjoyed and felt immense passion for. But now I'm starting to change my mind. I've always been a reader, there's hardly a time that passes by when I'm not enjoying a novel, or re-reading a book i've read many times. I guess I have to admit I'm in love with the written word. Song lyrics fill me with personal ephipanies and phrases that stick in my head, I think there's always something haunting in the way words and music are melted together. I want to create that haunting feeling. I used to write a lot of poetry and short stories, but in the last few years I've let the creative part of me fall away, so that it is no more than a whisper in the back of my head. I'm hoping that by joining this site I can gain some motivation and get that little voice to consume my imagination once again.
