Hi, hello, I'm Simmi and I've been writing for at least five years, but I've been writing semi-well for the past two. I've only ever written one decent short story called "Goodnight Lava" and have started a bunch of "wannabe novels" and what not.
I've sadly only really read one book by Chuck Palahniuk, Rant. It was so well written I fell in love with his writing. One of my friends is in love with the guys writing, so there may be some influence there, but I'm planning on taking an adventure to the library to get some more of his stuff.
I hope I haven't bored you to death, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
