Hello. I'm from the States, and I've been told I'm a good writer by my friends. Of course, by the standards of my area, that's not saying much. I love to write, its one of my favorite things to do, and I have ambitions to become a published author someday. My genres of choice are fantasy, science fiction, and post-apocalyptic. I want to hone my writing skills, and I seek constructive, brutal criticism that says what my friends tend not to: exactly what is wrong with my writing and how I can improve it. I'm not looking for praise here. I hope to add a few stories sometime soon, possibly the first chapter of my current project, Veilfall, tomorrow. I hope everyone who reads this introduction will also read it.
