I'm a Canadian currently living in a small village outside my hometown and working in Tourism. I write in my free time, what little of it that isn't taken up with traveling and hanging out with my friends. I appreciate all comments but I am especially grateful for any criticism. I am somewhat oblivious and often need to be hit over the head with something before I notice it. 
I'm also, despite the fact that I hate poetry, a published poet. 
Okay because I keep getting requests for it I'm just going to let you all know that I' not the hugest fan of  critiquing. I do it mostly as a stress reliever/ to help myself improve/because some people honestly just need a bit of help. When I critique I am incredibly mean and nit-picky. The worse the story is, the nastier I get. I am also brutally honest about it. Emphasis on the brutal part. Please bear this in mind when asking me to look at your work. I'll do it, but there's a high likelihood that I will tear your story apart. Also possibly your pride and your soul. You have been warned, so please, don't yell at me later if I critique your work or say I didn't tell you how bad I'd be. I have. 
Since I hate the constant posting of everything I do to it, if you want my tumblr account just go to laurendmsmith.tumblr.com . It's half blog-half writing website but there's a place for questions in case any of you have ones you want to ask. You can also ask anonymously if you like.
Thanks for reading!
