Greetings my fellow writers, readers and critics... "My name is Will Flannigan and I'm a writer", that's what I tell all of the ladies. Anyways, I'm writing from North East Ohio on a salesman's salary. It's truly vile really, being poor and hoping for nothing but a steady paycheck, food on the table and rum in my belly, but that's how we must suffer. I'm an editor for Buzzbin Magazine, an arts and entertainment magazine based in Akron, Ohio. I also do quite a bit of writing for the ole' mag and (oddly enough) I sell advertising as well. I'm graduating from Kent State University soon with a BA in English. I've been published in Buzzbin (of course) but my writing has also appeared in Luna Nega, Kent State's literary magazine and Jenny, Youngstown State University's literary magazine. I'm the "Generation Y" writer for Examiner.com. I'm a huge fan of technology. The internet is the most influential thing in my life right now. Social media. Blogs. News. It's all great. I love fantasy and children's books and comedy, I'd like to mix the genres some how. I've been mulling over several ideas for over a year now, but bringing them to fruition is difficult. The literary type I am not. I write with a sense of humor. Sometimes, I admit, my style becomes overbearing. That's one of the reasons I've joined this forum, I want to learn. Thank you for inviting me into your forum. I hope we can all learn something from each other! I'm excited to be here. Thank you so very much. Will Flannigan aka West Kraft.
