I joined this forum literally this afternoon, and I felt that I ought to introduced myself before I posted anything. My name (as you might have gathered) isn't actually Daltonia. I'm a high-school student from London, England who only really got into creative writing in the last year or so. I ended up here because I reading a thread about creative writing on another forum and someone said that if you're serious, you should probably join a forum about creative writing. I have only written a couple of short stories (both in the alternate history genre), and I'm into realistic fiction (fantasy has never really done anything for me) and find myself very attracted to contemporary political thrillers and the like. Wish me luck on the whole writing thing.
