Thought I would pop in and say hi, I found this forum last night and probably I'll just lurk and read threads for a while but I figured I should have an introduction thread just in case I join in a discussion or something. I'm 25 and I've been casually writing since about 10, started roleplaying on neopets at 14, kept roleplaying on and off since then and would sometimes head-write my own original stories but have always been terrible about putting it on paper. I'm working on a novel now though and thought maybe a writing community could help me stay motivated and inspired. I'm shy about posting my work so I don't know when you'll see any of it, but probably eventually I'll work up the courage to share. Maybe. In the meantime I'm looking forward to reading the threads around here, lots of interesting stuff!
