ryan.high1080 from Laredo, Texas is reading Consumed by David Cronenberg December 12, 2014 - 10:01pm

All the important things I have to say are in this next sentence: This website is awesome.

I guess I'll give myself some sort of introduction. I live in Laredo, Texas and I'm a high school senior.  I started writing my sophomore year of high school, but I only started writing fiction by somewhere in the middle of my junior year. Before that, I had been involved in UIL Ready Writing, and am still currently involved in that, where you write essays and all that jazz. I've written several short stories, just for fun (I've "misplaced" all of them) and I'm currently working on a novel. My plans as a writer is to keep improving my craft until I can maybe get something published. Other than that, I plan on becoming a journalist.

Outside of writing, I like watching movies (favorite directors: David Lynch, David Cronenberg, and Paul Thomas Anderson), reading (of course), and just chilling with friends.

You sound cool, and I like your taste in film directors. I still need to see Cronenberg's Crash having read the book but hell if I can get a copy over here. What's your novel about?

It's a horror novel with pulp and noir elements in it. I don't want to talk about the plot too much this early in the writing of it, but it's basically my spin on vampires. You can read the first, unrevised chapter in the writing workshop, if you want.

Hello everybody, I'm newgirlsghost/Sema a newbie. A long time Chuck fan. This place is the best way to learn the writing craft.  I'm excited to be here. I don't have much time to write, with two kids to maintain and two jobs.

I'm from North Carolina. I'm old as air. Umm Lets see, I like lots of different music but right now mostly math rock and I seem to like gangster films and arty horror. But not exclusively.

 I've got some ideas for a graphic novel for a while. Storyline kinda goes like this... boy meets girl. Girl disappears. Then reappears.  Its literally her job. But can she disappear one more time, when it really counts?...

I don't know what genre that goes under, I'm just guessing Magical Realism.   Hi Ryan!

My name is James. I'm from California, but teaching English abroad, currently in Taiwan, but moving to Prague soon. I'm in my mid-30s and haven't written anything publishable yet. To be honest, I'm so drained by my day job that I can barely muster the wherewithal to write. So I'm hoping my move to Prague will give me less work hours and joining a community like this will give me the encouragement I need to write more.
