    Awkward introductory post...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Marianne, Aug 11, 2015.

    I'm so bad at these introductory posts but hello. My name is Marianne, I'm 26 and I live in the UK.

    I haven't had much in the way of experience writing. I've gave it a fair shot several times and always gave up. Mostly because I have confidence issues and never really believe that I can set out to achieve what I'm aiming to achieve.

    But I really want to try again. I feel like it's something worth persevering with. Reading is such a passion of mine, I love the myriad of feelings I can experience just from words on a page and I would love to give that feeling to someone else. That probably sounds ridiculous...

    I don't really know what else to say, if I'm being totally honest. So, erm... yeah.

    - Marianne

    Welcome to the forum, I'm sure you will find yourself at home here with several other people with your same type of feelings or geographical location.

    Your self-description sounds very much like a lot of writers I know... especially the confidence part. It'll come with time; no worries.

    Welcome.

    Welcome to the forum :superhello:
    I think most writers aren't the most confident bunch. I'm getting better, but I'm still a little sensitive at times :write:

    hey, another awkward writer! maybe that was a bit mean, let me try again.

    you must be Marianne. I'm Moose, or Sam, either one's good.
    welcome!
