I haven't been on this forum since 2013. Coming back and seeing what a cringe I was... ew. Feb 4, 2017

    Are You Published?:
    Yes, Self-Published
    I'm an aspiring writer, artist, and costume designer currently dual enrolled in high school and a community college, looking to transfer into a four year. I have yet to decide my major, but it is a long time dream of mine to become a successful video game designer, comic book/web comic artist, or author. Currently, I am working on a novel called Transcend, which is in its third rewrite process and was once called Broken Angel before I reworked the story completely (which I am somewhat sad about, because I scrapped 100,000 words of hard work). I am a self-published writer, though my works have only made it into local and school newspapers.

    I love anything geek. My favorite video games are Dishonored, Thief, Bloodborne, Saints Row, Skyrim, the Witcher... the list goes on. Dungeons and Dragons and Shadowrun are the big tabletops I indulge in, and my favorite comic series is Freedom Formula by Edmund Shern. I am a huge reader, though regret saying I do not read as much as I need to. I love podcasts like Welcome to Nightvale. I have been cosplaying for quite a few years now, but have recently started making my own costumes.

    I come from a rural background. I grew up in Laurel, Montana, then moved down to Oregon when I was about ten years old. The move really helped seed my creative brain, and by fifth grade, I was attempting to write a fantasy novel called Burning Ashes. It didn't go so well, but with encouragement from great teachers and wonderful peers, I kept writing. I am currently content with my writing, but will always have room for improvement. I strive to improve.

    I originally joined this site around 2013 (when I was cringey as hell), then left it for about four years. I may not be as active as I would like, but posting my work on social media sites like Google Plus isn't helping me improve as much as I would like it to, so now I've returned with hopes of bettering myself, and perhaps giving my input to other striving writers.
