hello there. i'm Kumbric, heres a bit about myself. First off, the alias "Kumbric" was derived from Gregory Macguire's Kumbric Witch from his popular book "Wicked". I liked the name and it stuck, so this is the alias that I go by. At some point I feel I will probably create my own pen name, but as of now, I shall use this, and not feel regret, because Saki himself got his pen name from another man's story as well. Anyways, I am in High School and am hoping to pursue creative writing as a career. As an internet-savvy guy, I feel like i should use my knowledge of forums to my advantage and get as many critiques and advice as i can to improve my work. I do Poetry as well as Prose, and my most recent work, a short story titled "Goodnight, My Sweet Prince", was inspired by the recent passing on of a friend of mine, who died in a skiing accident this winter. I hope to post this story once I get enough posts in the forums. that is all, for now.
