Name: Sasha

Age: 16

About me: I'm not really sure where exactly to start with this. I go to a private school, I'm Russian and I'm definately strange (in what I hope is a good way) and I guess all those things are worth mentioning. Also I have no clue if I'm even doing this right because I just got LJ today so sorry if im totally posting this wrong :P really I love writing, I can't write short stories to save my life but I have a book I've been working on for a year and it's practically finished and has 286 pages so far

About my journal: Essentially I was planning on just posting parts of my book every *insert interval like a week or a few days here*
 I might still do that but right now I'm just trying to acquaint myself with things

What I write: I've started other books, not just the one I'm working on now. Some have gone unfinished others are done but they aren't...well they aren't quite right and I've outgrown them. But essentially all my books involve a heroine (rarely a hero but it happens) who is anywhere between 15 and 25 years old, and my books never go without romance, adventure and something mystical, though not a Lord of the Rings type of adventure but more of a 'constantly getting into more and more shit' adventure that usually ends with saving the world :P I'm corny like that

What I don't write: Short stories. Nothing against them personally I just can't do it. And my poetry isn't the best. Also if theres no romance whats the fun in it?

What I read: Willingly? Everything really, from Stephen King (dark tower series and currently working on The Stand) to City of Bones and yes, I did read Twilight but in the very beginning before it got way out of control. Unwillingly of course anything for school, currently reading Midnight's Children (very long book with a very interesting theme behind it...if you're patient enough)

What I don't read: Fiction, I guess I'm just not mature enough for it. Also biographies unless it's for a project

Could I edit someone else's work?: Sure, I don't see why not, though I don't know how well I could seeing as how I can barely edit my own stuff

What I'm looking for: To get my book out there, to get my thoughts out there really. See what people thing :P comments, concerns anything

Current Location: In mah room

Hello there and welcome to LJ! I haven't been around here that long either, but the mechanics of the site is really easy. It just needs some time getting used to.

You actually completed a BOOK? Wow, I salute you! I never could stick to one project and finish it. I eventually get distracted and end up doing other things. I envy your patience!

If you're willing to share them, I'd love to read some of your works.

Nice to meet you and be sure to have fun! :)

Thanks :) I used to always get distracted and start on new stuff when i got a new idea but I finally managed to just keep at the current one and build on it and yeah now it's almost finished :D
I'd love it if you could read through some of it I'm gonna start posting parts in my journal
