Hello everyone, I am Shinmaru from America. I join this forum because I'm a writer, but that probably goes without saying. What doesn't go without saying is that I also joined because I want to make friends with other writers as the friends I have now aren't really helpful in my endeavors. Let's see, I'm nineteen, but I think that's probably obvious. I'm working on a novel, which is the aforementioned endeavor but I'm sure I'm not the only one here who's doing that. Usually my introduction would be a wall of text but I fear I don't have much else to say. That being so, I look forward to having fun on this forum.
