    Ofcourse I Actually Already Am...

    I just don't take enough time to write. I write alright, I'm working on a single story that now has 560 written pages, I just wish I had more time to put into it. Other than this long story, I've done several short stories, in English, mostly slash anyway :)

    I Am Very Verbal
