Hello, you can call me Yunirone. Whatever that means. I'm currently getting my English MA focus in prose writing and was looking over your forums and thought, hell, maybe I can contribute a few things and help a few out. My biggest influence at the moment is HP Lovecraft, but other writers I enjoy are Cormac McCarthy, Larry Brown, Mary Gaitskill, Aimee Bender, Robert Heinlein, Harlan Ellison, etc etc. I tend towards horror/fantasy/literature Any genre works as long as it is character driven. If I had to give a few words of advice it would be to not fear what you write and as a writer you need to be able to withstand criticism. So if I ever put a story up here, please rip it to shreds so I see where it tares. Thanks!
