My name is Nicole DeVincentis. I am an aspiring editor, who hopes to work in the publication industry soon, with a bachelor’s in communication and writing. I write mostly fiction and fan fiction, but I’ve also dabbled in poetry a bit. I’ve had a love of reading since I was old enough to make sense of the words, and it’s where my love for writing comes from. I’m passionate about many things: movies, music, nature walks, martial arts, culture, and more. But ultimately, my passion lies with writing. I believe it is the gateway to the creative mind, and sometimes to the occasionally elusive subconscious. More than that, I hope to hone my craft. The more you read and write, the more skilled you become. But I love writing for another reason. It allows you to lower your defensive walls when you feel insecure. In writing, there is no such thing as insecurity; there’s only your imagination and the pen.
