Hello everyone, my name is Nate and I have just joined this forum. I have an interest in creating an online presence and interacting with other aspiring writers. A little bit about myself: I just graduated from UCLA with a microbiology, immunology, and molecular genetics degree. Although writing is not a very common hobby for those of us in this field (trust me, I know), I love creating posts, brainstorming story ideas, and just venting through writing whatever words crawl through those dark spaces in my mind. I love that feeling I get with a computer screen aglow, a carafe gurgling with hot, fresh coffee, and the endless possibilities of a blank white word document staring back at me. It is the best catharsis I could ask for. I look forward to meeting you guys.
