Hello guys and gals, I suppose I may as well introduce myself. You may call me whatever you like, but I'll just call myself Audience for now. Well that's me, Audience, one who loves all forms of art and practices as many as I can. Watercolors, inks, pens and pencils, acrylics and of course writing are all just a few of my mediums. I suppose I began writing around 6th or 7th grade. I quit for a while, frustrated with myself. Then in 11th and 12th grade (somewhat recent, as I just graduated high school 1/2 a year ago as of this writing) I have a sudden interest again. Still, I feel failed as a writer for the most part- perhaps this is due to not really ever having substantial feedback. ever. I tried using my other for a source once for feedback but she only says how wonderful everything is. Useless. Encouraging, but useless information. I have always had a difficult time asking for help when it comes to writing and I don't have many friends who write at that. I came here searching for a place where some of my work might be picked apart and torn up with constructive criticism that I so need. As for my part I will attempt to do what I can to help you all out in return. I have attempted many novels and have 2 being worked on now. One slowly with a friend who writes, and the other is my own result of boredom. My most recent endeavors have been a series of short stories based off songs. I am eager to share them with you, as they not only are the first few things I really like, but are in 1st person- a new tactic for me. Finally, I ask, is there anything about the site I should know? I read the rules (Yes, I actually read them. Shocking, I know.) already so no need for that. Thank you for your time.
