as many, not new to writting. I came into the forum hoping to get a little help as needed, and see what other kind of people where into writting too. I'm nearly nineteen, and have been working on something off and on for about a year, and i can't get it out of my head. I play guitar, and am a professionally unpaid musician, haha. I love ways to express myself, and music and writting are the two i do everyday, because i love it. I definetly go for fiction, and fantasy is my favorite genre. I was introduced to Harry Potter at like, 9 or 10, and got stuck on it. nearly a decade later JKR is still my favorite writer. I like, scott westerfeld, love his midnighters series, JRR Tolkein, though i have a few q.'s about his history of middle earth stuff. And currently I am fathomed by Joe Abercrombie's writting with the first law series. I avidly and openly hate twillight. I read the series, and it was possibly the worst three days ever... as far as reading goes haha. I don't have too much else to say. I read everything I can, hence, twillight , haha, I've read everything from Homer, Verne, up to modern day writers, and hope to meet a few good one's on here.
