Hi! I am an aspiring writer from Canada in desperate need of assistance in honing my craft. Despite the fact that I just finished my first year of university as an English literature student, I really haven't attempted much creative writing in the past. I haven't even read much creative writing! But I thought it might be about time to start. I look forward to becoming an active member of these forums and to contributing helpful critique to anyone in need (although I anticipate I will mostly just resort to mindless praise). I especially look forward to meeting people who will have enough patience to tolerate my silly newbie questions and who will be ruthless in critiquing my raw and unpolished writing endeavors. I hope this proves to be a fun ride for everyone! On a side note, I'm not used to using capitalization/proper grammar in forum discussions, so if I ever forget to capitalize an "I" at a crucial point in a heated debate, please bear with me!
