Hello, I'm born-again freshman at a liberal arts college in New England. I am formerly an art-ish major, but I have accepted my love for writing. I've finally gathered up the courage to both start my first novel and my first membership to a writing forum. I've joined your ranks because I figure that the visibility would give me a kick in the pants to be more consistent and provide me some support for my writing. You guys look like a laid-back and supportive bunch, so I look forward to my time here!
