Hi! My name is Georgie. I'm 14 years old, and I enjoy writing. I was never very good at it in school, to be perfectly honest. I got criticized constantly because my stories had no core, drifted away from the theme, or were just too complicated to understand. I guess I still have the same problem now. I'll come up with an idea, write a paragraph about it, and then proceed to drift until I'm writing about something completely different. I write mainly to calm down all the thoughts raging about in my head. If every confused thought can one-by-one make it's way out of my head and onto paper, I feel much less bewildered by life. I may not be good, but I enjoy it a lot. I'm the kid at school everyone thinks is weird. I have my nose in a notebook through every class and through lunch. I live in my converse (see my icon), and I love figure skating with a passion. It's pretty much my lifeline. Skating, along with photography, video editing and writing, is what keeps me from insanity. Otherwise, I would definitely be insane. Definitely. I'm pretty sure I won't be around often, because I have a busy schedule and tend to forget about forums I have joined. I'm looking forward to learning how to critique writing, too, and judging by the 'Critique 2, post 1' rule here, it looks like I'll be doing a lot of it! Thanks to anyone who actually bothered to read all of that. I tend to ramble.
