Um... Not quite sure what to say. I'm not an experienced writer by any stretch of the imagination. I write for fun, mostly fanfiction... Yes, yes. One of those fangirls/fanboys who think they can throw together a heap of 1337 chat speak, a non-existent plot, and characters reduced to caricatures of their original selves and call that a story. Don't pretend you don't scoff at us, you have every right to do so. *sigh* So, yeah. Lately, I've been finding some of the work of my fellow fangirls/boys excruciatingly painful to read. So, I've gone around reading writing guides from people I assume are the "pros" and I've come to realize how many things I do wrong in my average page-long fanfic. Bottom line, I'm here to learn. And hopefully I don't step on too many toes while I'm here.
