    Please allow myself to introduce myself:

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by gorgeouscaptaininsaneoh, May 27, 2015.

    I'm very glad to have found this forum...

    My name is David!

    I graduated from Georgia State University with an English degree (concentration in creative writing in poetry).
    I was on the 10 year program :superlaugh: It's a miracle that I graduated because I hated school up until I entered my upper level courses in college. I graduated high school in 1997. I'm proud of being a part of generation X, but maybe I shouldn't be. I don't know. 90s grunge rock is my #1 favorite genre of music, ie. NIRVANA. I've always had romantic thoughts and feelings about the 60s revolutions and thought. I really love The Beatles and the blues...

    I want to author novels and literary critique, without question. I have no backup plan! I know I could be awesome...

    I can't wait to get in to the workshop threads. I'm very analytic and hope to offer plenty of useful critique. I really miss my college workshops...

    I love the classics, literary fiction, science fiction, and fantasy. The best book I've read is The Brothers Karamazov.

    My favorite movie is "Goodfellas."

    I look forward to giving and gaining much here!

    All the best!

    A man of wealth and taste.

    The Brothers Karamazov has long been one of my favorite novels.

    Gosh, I hope nobody feels that they need to key my entire 'gorgeouscaptaininsaneoh'... Call me 'gorgeous' or 'captain' for short... Dave/David too...

    Thank you for the welcomes!

    To pick one, it has to be 'Come Together.'
    Oh, and I really like that Hemingway quote.

    That's very nice of you to say!

    Hemingway's the man. He constantly amazes me with his style.

    Though I doubt the Czechs' translatory abilities.

    Hi David. Welcome to the forum.

    I wish you luck in your quest for authorship!

    On a side note: I'm from the north-west of England and I grew up listening to The Beatles. They are an amazing band; possibly the greatest of all time. I briefly met Paul McCartney once as well. I shook his hand and he said: 'Hey. How you doing, man,' in his diluted scouse accent. Also, Nirvana is up there as well.
