    Hello, folks!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Kalashnikov, Jun 30, 2014.

    I am a 24 year old medical student who always harbored a flair for writing stories, poetry and speeches. As a child, I was often criticized by my teachers for my lackluster skills in mathematics but just as often, I was praised for my ability to write my own stories.

    I have been writing since I have been 11, I have been reading to improve my skills in storytelling, character development, and have always dreamed of publishing my own book. I wrote and held two speeches for newly sworn-in medical students, I held the farewell speech for my regiment upon finishing service in the Royal Swedish Marine Corps and I wrote several short-stories for the local newspaper.

    I am especially fond of the noir genre, growing up with watching black-and-white, hard boiled crime dramas and in later years, reading noir classics.

    Much obliged,

    Kalashnikov

    Welcome to the forum, Kalashnikov!

    Royal Swedish Marine Corps? Color me ignorant, but that probably implies you're a Swede? Always nice to bump into other Nordics. :) Så... välkommen!

    In case you're yet to check it out, here's our New Member Guide for starters.

    Have fun, and see you on the boards. :)
