Despite the not so unique title to this thread, I would like to make this as good of an introduction as I can. Hello. My name, well username, is lolzark. Feel free to call me lol, oz, ozark, or lolzark. Which ever you prefer, it really doesn't matter to me. I am currently a Junior in high school. You know. That time in your life where you're looking at colleges and preparing for that next big step after high school. Well, that's where I'm at. I hope to have a manuscript for a novel done by the end of my senior year. Ready to be printed and sent to a Literary Agent and all that good stuff. By the sentence or two before this, you can obviously tell that one day I hope to be a published author. Actually, it'd be awesome if I could one day be a Bestselling Author, but for right now I'm taking it one step at a time. I enjoy writing and reading. I also enjoy listening to music. I prefer to write Fantasy Fiction, and I will read just about everything. I have actually been known to read entire textbooks just for the sake of it. When it comes to music, I don't have a specific genre that I chain myself to. If I like a song, then I like it. It's really that simple. Though I do tend to lean towards the Beatles, Lady Gaga, and show tunes. Show tunes? Yes I just said show tunes. I love musical theatre. Though I'm not the best at singing or dancing, I would like to think of myself as a pretty okay actor. But I never wished to pursue theatre as a career. I simply love watching musicals and being a part of them. It's telling the story to the audience as best as you can that makes musical productions so great. English is my favorite topic in school, and I'll probably major in it when I go to college. Though I do have a knack for organic chemistry and math, so I am looking into Pharmacy. I know two languages fluently: English and Croatian. I also have a pretty good grasp on German (since I've been studying it for nearly five years). So that's about it. I joined to expand the number of people I know who have the same passion for writing. I wanted to have a group of people in real life and an online community. So this should be nice, no? The more people to help me on my journey of becoming a successful published author, the better. And hey! I might even be able to give a few people a hand. Yeah, now that is all.
