*giggles* Sorry, writers can be trolls too? I've not looked through the intro threads to see what level of blah-ing about self is acceptable, but this place feels scary formal, so first of all I'll say: I'm Melly and I hiss and cower away from formality 'cause I'm silly and even though I'm 20 I'm sitting here with a large stuffed toy aardvark on my lap. (He's orange, called Cuthbert Snowball, and loves you very much though he hasn't met you yet.) I've also had a couple of short stories published, and I'm working up to sending off a novel, since I sit on a large pile of them that make up my dread throne from which I oversee all, and rule it with fear and occasional cookie-giving-away bouts of benevolence. I'm also the editor of my university's student union magazine, though as it's still the summer holidays and I only signed up for it recently, I've yet to actually produce a magazine so that's probably unfounded gloating. (The ruler of the universe stuff is totally true though.) I hope there's room for me, my aardvark, and my fantastically awesome ego here. Nice to pre-emptively meet you?
