Introducing myself here because I've been instructed to - I would not have had the guts otherwise. Really seeing the benefit of being expected to do this! Hope this doesn't make for harsh, unpalatable reading.
I'm 19 years old and from New South Wales, Australia. I joined this site because I loved reading it - burned litres and litres of midnight oil (and I think my vision has worsened by a few degrees =/) as a result. Also, my sleeping cycle has been reset from a sleep at PM wake up at AM to a sleep in AM and wake up at PM pattern. All part of the charm of this site, I guess.
In terms of my writing style, I think its evident that I am a verbose [EXPLETIVE REDACTED] and use way too many words that could be easily replaced and with syntactical structures that run on and on and on and on - I think I'm trying to overcompensate with my writing style what I lack in my attention span. Aside from that, I don't really have an idea what my writing style is like because I haven't written creative things in a single, identifiable, typecast way. Hoping you guys will help diagnose me soonish! I'm currently studying at University and had previously taken as many English classes/units I could in High School and, as part of that, I wrote an 8000 word 'major work' (peanuts in size, but the largest thing I've done to date) and found myself guffawing at how stupid its dialogue was. So I'll be steering clear of that until I have better ideas about how to approach it.
Really hoping to contribute soon, have a few half baked ideas that I'll be playing around with a lot more before I even try so that I can mitigate the inevitable -10 downvote to something like a -5.
