Hello, everyone. I'm not particularly good at writing these introduction things, so bear with me if I go off on a bit a waffle. My name is, as you may be able to tell from my username here, Marc. I'm a soon to be twenty three year old from Manchester, England. I've been writing now for many years, though the only thing ever seen by members of the public has been the several fanfiction stories I've written. I've been working on an original novel for the better part of this year, and am greatly looking forward to the day that I can call it complete. I'm a very picky person when it comes to actually sitting down and writing. Noise bugs me and makes me lose track of my thoughts, so I need a place that's pretty much silent in order to gather my muse and make the words start to flow. My reading preferences lean more toward the fantasy genre than any other, something that I've blamed Tolkien for ever since I sat down and read his books during my early teen years. Anyway, I hope I've not bored you too much.
