Hey all, my name's Jamie Harris. I'm 20 years old and I live in Dundee, Scotland. I'm doing an MA in English and Creative Writing. As well as really enjoying writing myself, I have a lot of fun editing and critiquing and trying to help others make their work as good as possible. To that end I've also just started a Proof Reading and Editorial Skills correspondence course. A discussion of some common issues in Wattpad writing: http://www.wattpad.com/forums/discussion/530823/Common+Writing+Glitches+Pt.1 When I'm choosing stuff to critique myself I tend to stick to Sci-Fi and Fantasy as those are the genres I enjoy and feel I have a good handle on. That being said, I take requests so if you want a dedicated read of your story I'll be happy to help, regardless of genre (excluding any of those stupid 1 Direction fan-fic things, and similar work). I have two projects active right now. If you like science fiction, read "The Planet That Space Forgot" and if you like fantasy, "Whispered in the Dead of Night." CHEERS! As well as writing/editing, Uni and work, I play a lot of music. I'm not too picky about the genre (provided its not rap or dance, most of the dross you hear on the radio). I play guitar, bass and keyboard, depending on which band...I play in 4 :P from an acoustic project with my friend to a melodic hardcore band. The 2 reading lists I have are basically 2 categories. "Working" is the pieces I'm working on now and attempting to give regular feedback on. "To-Do Bucket" means the story caught my eye and my interest, but I don't know when/if I'll be able to leave proper feedback. :P "There's thousands like me, living low as society says, but we're high in a different world, one where they say one day, a better world where we still have hope and faith. and when we look up to the sky in those seconds before the end we'll know that we did all that we could." - Our Final Hour: Autumn Breeze. Keep smiling! Jamie.
