I`m a university student in the final year of an international politics degree. I`m currently in Japan, studying the Japanese language, but I`ll be heading back home to Aus and getting a real job soon. I don`t get to write as much as I like to cos the study regime over here is pretty intense.

I`m 21, which I have been informed often (and i assume accurately) is Very Young. Actually, I am inclined to suspect that everyone else is just very old. After all, if you’re 30 a third of your life is already over…

In almost every media my taste seems to be at least 40, and English. The Goon Show, Monty Python, Q (a short-lived TV series by Spike Milligan) and Douglas Adams, for example. More recent creative gurus include Terry Pratchett and Dylan Moran (of Black Books fame).

I tend to write humorous pieces, short stories mostly. I`m looking to start entering my work in competitions, to get some indicator of my level of ability, and because winning is a blast. I know because it happened to me once when I was 12. I’m still running on the adrenalin.

See you on the forums people!

My class were lucky enough to be given lessons in this theatre style that many Japanese ppl never even go and see. We were dressed up in these hugely elaborate costumes and taught songs and dances, which we eventually performed for a small group. / It was an awesome experienc…

Well, after a week of sitting bloodshot-eyed and twitchy next to the computer hoping someone would comment on my stories, I uploaded some holiday snaps and took a photo of my pencil. / Hey Presto! Attention! / I feel like a bit of a cheat, really. I know nothing about photography, I just cropped and twiddled til I thought they looked about right. I don’t even properly understand what terms…
