I've been lurking in the shadows of this and a few more writing-related sites before finally settling down here. Being a very tentative writer, this will hopefully help me get my project across the finish line - a story about an orphaned necromancer who must avenge her village by killing a creature from their deepest myths (and yadayadayada). In my defense, the last story I abandonned wasn't (entirely) because of lack of motivation: we'll just say that at fifteen, I don't have enough military experience to write a convincing counterterrorism story, no matter how much I read. I tend to overthink things at times, as well as apparently overreacting to non-constructive criticism; however, my lack of technical aptitude (yes, I know, I'm an embarassement to the teenage male community =D) will likely allow me to cool down while I try to figure out how to post. If not, my apologies; I promise to kill my temper whenever possible. I speak fluent French, if that can be of any help to anyone (translation-wise), and I may be found at Yahoo Answers under the same name (Somnus).
