Hello to all you wonderful writers out there! I have lurked about for a small while, and have decided that this is a friendly, and more importantly, helpful little community. I have decided to join, hoping to learn from the masters and help those I can. I am 23, in the United States (usually), having seriously written for five or six years now. I think I am too addicted to my own stories though, they keep dragging on and on with no end in sight! I look forward to sharing a few of my complete short stories for critiquing though, and look forward to the monthly challenges to keep my brain going. In addition to writing, my other big hobbies are origami, drawing, playing games (tabletop and video games), webmastering, and dabbling in music. With that small clue of who I am, I'll see y'all out in the forum!
