Hey everyone, I'm Jonny. I'm 26, and live in Manchester, UK - when I'm not scribbling ideas down, I'm studying a PhD in Political Theory, and doing various silly things involving theatres and parades for alcohol-related reasons. I've been writing for years, though with the odd year or two here and there where I wrote next to nothing due to being insanely busy. I'm currently nearing the end of draft one of my first novel (not the first one I've started, you understand - just the first one that I've managed to persist with enough to get a full draft!), and realising exactly how much of it needs rewriting! I've also got a silly number of short stories dotted about my hard drive - though the only one anyone's ever actually agreed to publish was this: http://londonist.com/2014/06/london-short-fiction-the-wallbuilder.php Anyway, I'm here to chat about writing, and get to know some of the other scribbledy types here. Jonny.
