Hi there! I'm sixteen years old and I've recently been inspired to (hopefully) write a novel. After taking APUSH this year, the Vietnam War and its horrors really struck me. It was depressing but insightful to learn about how people killed one another simply because of the strife between their countries. This gave me the idea to write a story with an underlying message that hatred creates more hatred which causes the cycle of violence to never end. So a few quick facts about me: The most perceptive book I have read so far has been Life of Pi but Cassandra Clare is my guilty pleasure I love tennis (although the college recruiting process has been quite stressful) I enjoy painting with watercolors I'm trying to break free of my pessimistic perspective and become an idealist without illusions I would love to meet some writer friends and develop a relationship where we can improve our writing together. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you have a lovely day!
