I go by Fleetlord_Atvar and I'm an extreme amateur. I'm eighteen and have been "seriously" writing (that is to say, writing in some quantity and at length) for a couple of years now. I'm not particularly a big fan of my own work, and I'm a poor self-critic a lot of the time. I like Kafka, Fitzgerald, Dostoevsky, Tolkien, King, and some Tolstoy (Ivan Ilyich) and Chekhov. My favorite poets include Thomas and Swinburne, and as far as dramatists are concerned I love Chris Marlowe. I also have a fairly strong interest in philosophy. I'm here mostly out of boredom and don't know if I'll stay very long.
