I'm Mary, 16. Wanted to be a writer since I was like 5 maybe? haha, tend to write novels, unpublished clearly lol. But I must have about 30 written down and started, about 10 of which are finished and another 50 ideas in my head lol. Write poems and short stories on occasion, but it's not my deal really. Live in a dull corner of the UK so i guess writing is my way of having something exciting in my miserable little life :) Fantasy id always better than reality. Besides all that i draw (portraits and clothing designs mostly). And if I don't make it as a writer (or maybe even if I do) I'd like to be a costume designer for a theatre :) I love clothes :) hehe. Well thats me I guess, although i should warn you that any pause in a conversation will be filled with me talking, probably something to do with music as i have a slight obsessive problem in that area, so if you want to talk to me be prepared to talk :) haha, toodles!
