End of the first month of 2014. So far, since last year, I've been delving into a few new authors and some old. I've delved into books by Chris Wooding and have been severely hooked. Also, I decided to finally try Anne McCaffrey's Brainship series which have been mentioned in a few other books.

In the rereading department, all of the Pern books as I need to refresh my memory of all the relevant events as I'm planning on writing a slightly altered version which is meant to be the story of the origin of Pern(in a sense).

In the writing department, its been slow. For chistmas I wrote a piece for the one story I'm working on, though whether I'll want it published or not, I don't know. I'm really just writing it for myself, from a concept that's all too common around us, the battle between nature and tech. In a way it's sci-fi due to the factor of aliens with like super technology, otherwise I'm not sure where it fits in.

Anyway, varsity this year looks to be quite interesting. With thinks like veld management, reproduction science and agroclimatology, we're learning more specialized and important things, which is GREAT! I'm so looking forward to it! :dummy:

Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
South Africa
I'm a hobbyist writer who day dreams story scenes all the times and then forgets what I thought up. I'm Italian/Irish living in the city of Pretoria, situated in the beautiful South Africa! I write poems on a occasion, usually only when asked to by a friend which, for me, makes the poem more special:)

Currently I'm a student at the University of Pretoria doing a BSc in Agricultural Animal and Pasture Science. I love to read, mainly Fantasy and Sci-fi. I'm particularly a fan of Anne McCaffrey and her son, Todd. Currently I'm planning a slight twist to Pern. Not a huge change like some of the fanart and fanfics I've seen(which absolutely shocks me, though maybe I'm just and extreme purist towards that amazing world....:shrug:) though it is an idea that could have great potential. Its for myself though one day If Todd McCaffrey say's it does justice to his mother's world I'd be over the moon.

I'm like photography to a degree but I see it as capturing I moment that may never happen again instead of creating a moment. That's about it for what I feel anyone who sees my profile should know :)

For those who visit and enjoy reading my pieces, I'm glad you did and I hope they were an exciting door to another world/ place!
