Hi guys, newest member here. I found this forum from a simple google search, and it seemed the best! I'm 22 years old and been writing for the last six months, the six months previous to that I spent forming ideas and generally realising that writing was what I'd really, really like to do. So quick bit about myself. Age you have, I'm originally from Liverpool, but lived in Devon for many years before attending the University of Manchester, from which I'm about to graduate with a degree in Art History. It was... ok-ish, a lot more history and lot less art. The one very, very good thing though was it pushed me to write from the ideas I began to have in class. I'm a big reader, (as every writer should be!) my dad's often told me C. S. Lewis was said to have read 1000 books by the time he was 18, a record he sincerely believes (or likes me to think so at least) that I equaled. My genre of choice is fantasy, especially Lord of the Rings, A Song of Ice and Fire etc. though this last year has seen me begin to explore Horror and War. All about expanding the mind I guess. Cheers for letting me ramble, I hope to make a good addition to the community here. Matt.
