The name's Anya and I'm twenty-years-old. I'm a full-time student at the University of Central Florida and I'm double majoring in English/Creative Writing and Anthropology (and I'm actually just about to start taking all the fun writing classes next semester!). I've been writing for years, though I don't have as much to show for it as I'd like. Hopefully I'll change that soon enough! I first got into writing through roleplaying about eight years ago. I still have one RPG that's been going for almost four years now with my best friend; it's just the two of us who write it together but it's around 3,500 pages now. It takes up a lot of my creative time, I suppose! I'm hoping to write some original short stories that stand alone and eventually I'd love to write a novel, but right now I'm just digging around for some good ideas. I don't really have anything ready to share as of right now so I'm looking forward to reading other people's work, getting in some constructive critiques, and really getting involved in the community! I love how active this forum seems. I'm a pretty shy person (more shy on the internet than in person, strangely enough!) so I'd have to say this is the first forum in a while that I've decided to get involved in. I usually talk myself out of it! But I'm looking forward to it and I hope to see you all around.
