Hi there. My name is Daria, but across the internet I am known as FrailBeauty. I am very much new to the writers forum scene, so I'm hoping you'll bare with me as I try to find my away around here. For most of my life I was not sure of whether I was really any good or not as a writer. This was until I started my own creative writing blog (www.frail-beauty.com) in May of this year. It became rather popular and has now grown to 7000 followers/readers. With this blog I got involved in a community of other young writers such as myself and got really great feedback from my readers. This motivated me and made me believe in my writing abilities. It has also pushed me to pursue a career in writing. At the moment I am 18 years old and living in St Petersburg, Russia. I do not plan on going to university here, because my country cannot offer me the type of education I would need to become a better writer. Mostly because they do not have English as a first language in any affordable universities here. Due to this I am left to lead a rather dull existence of working mundane jobs and feeling sad about not really getting anywhere with my life. It especially gets bad when I experience writers block and am left unable to release the tension in the only way I know how - through my writing. Anyhow, I promised myself I would not write an essay here, but I seem to be getting carried away. Forgive me! I look forward to making some new friends on this lovely messaging board. Oh, and I also look forward to reading some inspiring works from other writers from around the world!
