Hey, I'm Carissa, age 24, from North Dakota.
I've wanted to write for a living since before I was able to pick up a pen. I'd tell stories to any one who'd listen and I'd write out these stories (in symbols that only I'd be able to decipher) and read them allowed to my parents.
I've only really been happy my entire life when I've been writing. And I've said my entire life that I've wanted to be a novelist and realized it's about time that I probably started actively working that job. (i.e. your chances of becoming a novelist go up when you actually start writing novels...)
I sought out this place cause it looks like a good place for me to grow as a writer and really stay focused.
