Hey there everybody. New member here. Took my time reading the forums, rules, etc. Looks like a good place to get some information and motivation. Motivation is probably my biggest reason for joining. I have dreamed of being a writer since I was a child, but aside from some small segments of productivity where some short stories were produced here and there, my ideas usually never leave my head. I thought a community like this might help me be more motivated, and less critical of what comes out on the page. The biggest thing I'm trying to learn is that it takes work to get something that works, and I can't expect it to come out perfect the first time. Hopefully my writing journey will progress with this site.
