    Hello!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Kit, Apr 14, 2007.

    Hi everyone,

    Well this is my first post of what I sincerely hope will be many more to come. Despite my passion for writing, I've never been a member of a forum dedicated to doing so, and i'm hoping that I can make some friends here in this online community.

    I'm not sure what to really say to introduce myself as i'm generally quite a shy person. I've noticed from reading through existing posts that there's a wide range of people on here and I hope to fit in despite my young age (of just 16... please don't hold it against me).

    My interest of writing started at a very young age, and I remember filling pages upon pages of exercise books with short series' and short stories until eventually i've matured and started writing novels. I enjoy writing supernatural fiction although i'm willing to give anything a try and I like to challenge myself.

    Additionally, I "try" and write poetry when I have the time although I must confess that this isn't particularly a strong point and my poems tend to be too literal and not very interesting either...

    I haven't really said alot about me so i'm sixteen and i'm from Nottinghamshire in England. I'm a student in sixth form studying History, French, Spanish and ICT and in the near future I hope to go to university to study Modern European Studies...Writing for me is more of a stress-relieving hobby than a career choice.

    Anyways, I'm going to go away now and read some more posts on this forum and I hope to get active and hear from people soon :)

    Hi there.
    Don't worry about your age. People here range from 13 to early 60's, and I haven't seen any age discrimination yet.
    See you around.
    Cheers.

    Oh and I never claimed that they were any good... (For those of you who've not already noticed: my glass is half empty.)

    Look at my sig. :) Links, as long as they aren't leading to porn or anything illegal, are allowed. But remember to keep it tasteful.
    I'll check out your stuff, when I get the chance. Even if its not that good, everyone has to start off somewhere.
    Cheers.

    Welcome to the site!

    As said, the vast majority of time, age isn't an issue here.

    (heck, I'm the site owner/admin and I'm sixteen!)

    So anyway, welcome to our writing forums. I suspect you'll fit in nicely.
