Hello writingforums.org! I am a young writer (Younger than most of you here... but prejudices aside.) by the name of Sydney, but you can call me Sy, Syn, whatever you wish. Hey, I'll even respond to Blinky the Gecko, if forced. I've been writing since I knew how, and it is my favorite hobby, pastime, and most of all, passion. I come from a long line of writers, starting with my great grandfather who was Editor In Chief of the International news service. It was something I was born into, and I think I'm pretty good. Gosh, I sound cocky. Sorry... ^^; I'm still young and don't really know all that much, but I am interested deeply in psychology, and use it for influence on a lot of my work. I live in Colorado, raised on a steady diet of indie music, baseball, and math. Yeah, its pretty sweet. My favorite form of writing is prose, since I don't think I'm particuarlly good at poetry. By the way, I'm bad at spelling. Oh, how I love thee, spell check. I'm very glad to be a member, and hope to stick around for a while! Sorry for the long post.
