Hi! My name is Cassie, I'm 20 years old (just 7 short months away from the big 21!) and I'm getting ready to start my junior year in college. I'm currently double majoring in Counseling Psychology and English with a literature emphasis. I've always been a reader, been doing it since I learned how, and for as long as I can remember the only thing it ever takes to occupy me is a good book. My parents could put me at the table with a book or a pen and paper and I'd be set for hours. All my life, I've wondered if there was something more to my passion. I find myself engulfed in literature and constantly getting lost in the text. Once I've finished, I want more and start thinking of ways I'd have written the story or how it could be continued. I keep a small journal with me where I write down random ideas I get from life that one day, I'd love to put together into some sort of fiction. I'm an avid journal-er and have always thought about using my own experiences and turning them into something. I stumbled upon this site and thought I'd give it a try, in hopes of building my bank of ideas and learning a thing or two about composition as well.
