So, I'm Micah Monfrini a.k.a Varo. I'm a 19 year old amature writer, critic and lyricist born and raised in Austin, Texas. I've decided to start a profile here on Fiction Press because I needed an excuse to work on my writing, and stop playing World of Warcraft so much. (70 Ret Pally Fenris Server, Alliance baby!!) And also because three of my best friends have their work on here as well, SlyvainKnight, Scottish Princess, and Equilibrium all possess amazing imaginations and writing skill, and are probably much more talented than I. However, I've decided to start writing down the flurry of ideas in my head so I can stop pacing around the house so much. Anyway, here's a little info about myself and I hope you enjoy my work.
