Hi! I'm Lydia, a middle school-aged girl from America, who loves reading and writing. I am one of the few that I know who actually enjoys learning about the English language and everything that has to do with it, like grammar and spelling, etc. (Did I word that funny?) I used Google to find this website, as I searched: "a story writing forum", after revising one of my old stories. I was simply looking for a forum that I could post my stories on for comments and advice. I should let you know that I am new to writing, besides the occasional essay for school. I am usually OK with punctuation and spelling, but I'm not sure I'm experienced enough for this website. I guess you could say I'm a newbie looking for help. I have written a story, but I have no idea what I should do with it... I have read the workshop rules, so I know i won't be posting it here for a while, but are there any tips I could find somewhere for writing? Thanks, Lydia.
