I like this website and these forums. I've always written. Even when I was an eight year old I wrote Battestar Galactica fan fiction. That was in 1978 when the original was still airing. The trouble is I never took it seriously. I mean really. There I was all but eight years old and in every story I would end up with Athena, Cassiopeia, and the "launch when ready" girl. The teachers said I had an imagination and should be a writer. I thought they were just doing their jobs by saying so. It wasn't until recently that I started taking it seriously, or at least considering having it critiqued -- everything from the typical stupid beginner mistakes in grammar to catastrophic plot holes and logic errors. Anyway thanks for your time.
