Hello, My name is Ory, and I am new to the world of writing. I am 29, and I live in Chicago. I've come here because I've been working on a novel and thought it would a good idea to have a place where I can discuss ideas and learn. I love to read (philosophy, novels, comics, movie scripts, poetry, plays, and journalism) and would like to try my hand at writing. I looked forward to interacting with some of you on the forum, and I do plan on starting a journal in order to keep track of my ideas, gain feedback, progression, and jot down notes on things that I've learned.
