Hi all, I'm a 21 year old Journalist and Student from South Africa; I'm currently studying towards my Bachelor of the Arts in English Literature and Journalism and Media Studies from Rhodes University. I am in my final year, and have always dreamed of writing fiction when I'm older (and hopefully have a little more money in my account), so I thought I should get some foundation work started on. I am a huge fantasy fan, although don't feel confident enough that I'll escape cliches to make a foray into that just yet. Until I have gained a bit more confident in my expression I aim to examine ways to convey different characters' perceptions of their worlds (and themselves). (Currently doing a course on Lord of the Rings and it's allegorical interpretations, as well as early English novels, ranging from Chaucer to Spenser.) Obviously I'm not here just to write, I always want to read others' works, and hopefully learn something from the more experienced! So in summary: Hi!
