    Hello~ New face ^-^

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Shayna, Mar 21, 2015.

    Hello!~ I just joined the forum today. My name is Shayna, and I'm 26 years old. I'm actually wondering why I didn't think of looking for a writing forum sooner, but hey, rather think of it now then never. I started writing back in high school, and during my first year of college (YA and fanfiction mostly) but have been in a very long slum due to depression for quite some time. I've decided the depression wasn't going to win, and I want to start writing again. I tried, and didn't get very far doing NaNoWriMo last year. I've started looking up bestselling lists for Young Adult novels and reading the books, as this is one market I think I've always been interested in. I enjoy fanfiction, fantasy, and romance as well. Harry Potter is my all time favorite fanfiction, and lately I've been reading a lot of BDSM-romance titles on my Kindle. I've been looking into self publishing and selling via Amazon kindle as well. I'm in home health care, so have a lot of time to kill most days, but don't have a laptop anymore. Yes, yes, I can use a pen and paper, and I fully intend to do so! I'm just glad to find a community, and completely welcome writing buddies or friends of any sort!

    Ahh, I'm an idiot. For the past ten minutes I've been wondering what Harry Potter was fanfic of.

    Hello Shayna,

    I'm new too, and a fanfiction writer. I'd been reading it since I was about 14, and went through a few abortive attempts before going on hiatus until now.... when I got my big idea :).

    Yours is an inspiring story - I hope to see some of your work on this website :)

    Hi Shayna and Mark!

    Welcome to the forums. Pull up a chair, grab a cuppa, and make yourself at home. :-D

    I look forward to reading stories from both of you in the fanfic area.
