Hey. I'm an aspiring writer from southern Africa for those of you who aren't in the loop, and I love books. So I decided to write one... Which is why I’m here (But we're all here for the same reason, right???)

Age: 18

Birthday: 7 September

Languages spoken/understood: All. Every single one on Earth. Nah, just joking. English, French, Shona

Interests: Reading, writing, listening to music, PC gaming, meeting people, eating good food, for that is what life is made of.

That’s out of the way. I also noticed that most ppl have a like summary of their fave stuff, so, I’ll do the same. Here is a non-exhausting list of my favourite things

Quotes.

The Gods Favor The Bold – Ovid

That which does not kill you makes you stronger – Freidrich Nietzsche

The greatest failure in life is not the man who did not succeed, but the man who did not try – Anonymous

True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it is lost – Charles Caleb Colton

All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others – George Orwell

Guys, I’m becoming cranky. I need to get some. – My sister

People.

You know who you are.

The Literary Side

Review Policy: I think it prudent to mention my review policy. I aim to give constructive reviews that will aim to help people to write better. So, if I say something in a review that you don’t like.. Deal with it. If I like something, I’ll tell you. If not, I’ll tell you anyways. And if you don’t want the help, then don’t come here…Finally, if you review something of mine, I will review something of yours. Hopefully, this will mean we can all improve our writing talents.

My Writing

Saving the best for last (I hope???)… Basically I like to write about‘dark things’ (there’s not much fun in writing about the good side of life, although it comes out of me from time to time…) and so most of my writing deals with ‘heavy’ issues… Enjoy morbidity!!! By the way, I am sick and tired of reading all of this formal poetry in class, with pretty little stanzas and nice rhyme schemes. I refuse to write poems which stick to the norm, so don’t expect the above in my poetry; I am primarily a free verse writer.

By the way, if you do not understand any aspect of my writing, would like to discuss a review I’ve
left you, or simply wish to discuss the merits of eggs, mushrooms, and Pecorino cheese, feel free to email…

Well anywayz, I'll keep y'all updated as da time goes by...
