    I Am Very Verbal

    EP has helped me get my thoughts out of my head. I am getting used to typing out what I'm thinking rather than writing by hand in endless journals and notebooks. I would like to publish a book someday but have no delusions of my lifestory becoming a best seller. Better yet, and...

    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 :)
