I'm a 21 year old who wants to change the world. Due to the unlikelihood of that happening, I'll settle for changing you if you'll let me.
I've had no formal creative writing training nor have I gone to college, though that is in the works. I've not even read any classical literature; what I write is purely me and my own, as repulsive and coarse as that may be.
I've written about a half-dozen short stories, most of a novel, and over a hundred complete song lyrics(some use poetic devices, most don't, aside from rhyming).
Not looking to make money from my stories--at least not until I've taken classes for writing.
I'm also a guitarist, a wannabe singer and a terrible pianist. In a world of synth-driven, auto-tuned chart toppers, the kind of musician that I hope to be is quickly becoming obsolete.
May each universe you create be as filled with imagination and wonder as this one.
Please alert me to any ways you feel I can improve my style of writing.
Rates, comments and criticism are not only welcome, but much appreciated.

In places it reads like a cross between philosophy and poetry. It is a little rough in a couple of places, but not so bad that one gives up on the piece. I will be interested to see how this writer develops with more experience.
