It is something I have wanted to do since I got into reading (about aged 5) and I have huge respect for anyone who can write successfully, even if I don't like what they actually write.
It is a way for me to release what I'm thinking to the outside world, and for me to show the real me in a way that doesn't insult or injure. I may not be an emo/goth, but I am hugely interested in gothic things. Through my writing, I can convey that without having people taking the mick. Not that I would mind, but I already have people talking about me for too many things.
