I've been writing since the third-grade. By my sixth-grade year I was a college level reader. My writing scores have always been high, and my skills praised. I write mostly for pleasure, mine and my friends. Writing is my passion, but that won't easily sustain me in the future. I'm a creative writer with a broad imagination, and wide vocabulary.
