Hi, I am relatively new to writing on a regular basis. I have always been a fan of science fiction and fantasy and most of my work tends to fall into one of these two genres but I also enjoy horror and thrillers. I spent a large portion of my early life unsure of what direction to go in from a career standpoint. Eventually it dawned on me that since I enjoy stories so much I should try to write my own. I completed one novel and then got about 50,000 words into my second before ditching it. I am currently working on a new novel (with no plans of ditching it this time). I was looking for a place where I could interact with and bounce ideas off of other writers and after scrolling through and finding some intelligent discussions here I signed up. I'm twenty eight and live on the east coast of the United States. I love to read. Recently its been a challenge finding enough time to allocate to reading and writing (More, more, more my brain always says) but I manage as well as I can. I also enjoy exercise (running, weight lifting, swimming), nutrition, sports, and video games.
