I stumbled on this place thanks to Google, and since this is the first website I've seen with people who actually take writing seriously, I thought I'd join. I haven't had the pleasure to talk to people who are very serious about writing ever in my life. That's been a bit of an issue since I've been writing for the past five years. So hopefully I will begin to learn more about writing than what I have been able to from reading, reflecting, and writing. I have no intentions of ever being published; I'm not even sure I will ever release any of my writing anywhere. I write simply because I enjoy doing it, and I'm not out to generate money or garner compliments from it. Because of that, I doubt I'll ever post my own writing here. But I do intend to read other members' work as much as I can, and offer constructive critique if I can. I'm mostly here to see what other writers do. I've studied as much as I can about writing from reading books and researching writers, but there is only so much I can get from doing that. I want to see the processes other writers follow, what their opinions are on topics related to writing, and a lot more.
