I love writing fiction or anything creative. I'm familar with poetry and film writing, and will also offer to edit works as well. It's important to be able to give and accept criticism. I love viewing all art forms but will search for comic, fanyasty artists since I can't draw myself. The artists is free to interpet my idea as long as they will agree to make changes if there are any.
