Hi all! I debated whether I should introduce myself and decided why not The quick facts are that I am 27, living in Texas, going to school for accounting, and 2 years married. I recently decided to start writing for fun and have started dabbling in writing a young adult novel. Not even sure how, but I stumbled across this forum and got a little excited about really writing as a hobby and getting involved in a community like this. I sort of hate writing for English classes, but I really think that I write well and have gotten compliments from teachers in the past. Not really sure where the conflict is except that maybe it just comes down to being told what to write and read. That, and it really it has only been in the last few years that I have begun to read more. The book I am writing is still very much just in the beginning stages, but I am having fun with building the characters and finding ways to make it interesting to read. We'll see how far I get! I'm also hoping to build my skills and hopefully my love of writing with some creative writing assignments, so that should be interesting too. See ya soon!
