Good morning, everyone! My name's Nancy. I'm 25, from Virginia, and I think it goes without saying that I like to write. I've just recently completed a (very) rough draft of my first novel, which is what led me here--I hoped that through reading and critiquing the works of others, I would better my skills in those areas and be able to apply them to my writing. My passion is mystery, but I sometimes dabble in other genres when feeling adventurous. I have a background in both law enforcement and the military, so if anyone is working on stories that involve either of those subjects, I'd be happy to provide some insight. I'm very excited to join a community of like-minded individuals--perhaps a bit too excited, as I dipped my toes into the forum before introducing myself! Whoops! I'm sincerely sorry if I've offended anyone or gone against etiquette. With that said, I look forward to meeting and working with you all!
