Hello there, folks! This lovely web site happened to be the one that jumped out at me the most, so I decided to give it a try. My name is Anthony Susin, but you can call me Ares Desideratus (if you want). I love reading; the art of literature is something I've always been fascinated by, and the idea of being able to live in another time and place, using the power of words and imagination has always seemed incredible to me. I'm sure you all feel similarly about reading and writing so I won't whinge on about it. Basically, I've practiced some minimal writing, although it's mostly just been me messing around at this point. And I really aspire to start writing real stories and have people read them. I figured an online community of readers and writers would be a good place to find new, interesting things to read, as well as a good place to concoct crazy new ideas with other creative weirdos and potentially find an outlet for my own forthcoming works. (I have a few dozen not-quite-finished stories hiding in the far corners of this desktop which I am working on). So, I hope to meet some cool people here, maybe even make a friend, read some crazy shit, and just see what happens. Yeah.
