I stumbled upon this Web site, and immediately saw this as a good opportunity to meet some new people, engage in interesting (and hopefully informative) conversations, and continue to work on my craft. At the risk of divulging too much information, I'm 22 and have been writing since I was five years old. I wrote my first novel in middle school. I'm currently working on my "first novel that should actually get published." I also have worked as a reporter, and my current FT job is in public relations. Other than writing (and the obvious interest in reading), I enjoy hiking, being with family and friends, cooking, and working out. (And sleeping ... I love napping in the most unnatural way.) So ... thanks for having me, and I look forward to being incorporated into this community!
