Hello everyone, I just wanted to share a little bit about myself as a writer. I have always had the desire to write and a head full of ideas, yet I was never quite sure how to go about it. As a teenager I wrote poems and was constantly starting short stories, but I never seemed to be able to finish them. I would get stuck and could not seem to move forward. Now that I am a few years older and have the self-discipline and dedication to actually finish what I start, I am giving it another try. I am working my way through Janet Burroway's Writing Fiction and am hoping to use these forums as a source for feedback and encouragement. Good luck to you all and I look forward to being a part of this online community.
