Thanks so much for reading my stuff <3
I'm a 22-year-old grad student, doing research in math and statistical genetics. I'm American, but I live in the U.K., and my English is now so bastardized that I think I've used 'whilst' and 'hella' in the same sentence before :)
Back in November, I had Twilight shoved at me by a British friend who's way more in touch with American pop culture than I am :-p It blew my mind because it's a story about nerds that somehow gets through to every non-nerd who reads it!
I did a secondary undergrad degree in English lit, and I started going
crazy after a month of grad school because I wasn't writing or talking
about books anymore. Then Twific saved me/ took over my life :)
Writing may take time, but I totally started having better math ideas
once I started wrapping my head around my first fic idea!
As much as I love writing papers for the Journal of Number Theory and
such, I also want to write things that can get through to a bigger
variety of people. Seriously... I think
that figuring out what makes writing appealing is such an interesting
problem, one that got neglected during my otherwise wonderful lit
education. Please help me get a clue by reviewing and constructively criticizing!
