Hello, everyone! My name is Frank, and I'm kind of new in town. I am joining this forum for some tips and tricks in writing some decent fiction, and to get to know some fellow writers. I have never actually written anything in the realm of fiction, but it has always been something I've wanted to do, so I figured why not now? I mainly would like to write short stories, probably in the horror/thriller genre. A little information on me: I'm 24 (I'll be 25 in June), I'm currently a college student studying history (getting my Associate's Degree in May, transferring to a 4 year University next semester), I work a crappy retail job that I absolutely hate, I live in the fair state of New Jersey, I love to read, Edgar Allan Poe is my favorite author of all time, I love movies, and I play piano, bass, and guitar. So that about sums me up in a nutshell, I look forward to getting to know you all, and gaining some knowledge from some more established writers!
