Hello. In about fourteen hours after this post, I will be attending my first college class. My major is Computer Science; however, my true passion lies in writing. The reason I am pursuing a degree in CompSci instead of English or Creative Writing is for practicality. One simply cannot survive with an English degree in these troubled times. That said, I still write. I dabble in fan fiction and original fiction. I've worked on what I hope to be my first published novel for about two years, although I had the concept since before I took an interest in writing. The project I am currently working on is my debut, which I hope to complete before the end of my college career. It is called "A Method to Save the World." I believe in the beauty of existence-- that everything has its own value and is "beautiful" in retrospect. This belief appears heavily in my writing. I've scoured the internet in search of a community suited for me, and I found this place. I want critique on my ideas. In exchange, I will help others with their own ideas. I believe that is a fair exchange. Hope to chat (post?) with you all soon.
