Hey!! I saw there was an introduction thread and I (obviously) felt the need to introduce myself! My name is Taryn and I am an almost five year post-grad in Media Studies - focus on Journalism. I've always wanted to be a writer since I was a child and journalism seemed to be the more obvious choice when I was in high school. While I had tremendous experiences while in school, it's since dwindled and I am now stuck working part-time at a retail store while still living at home (I'm 27 by the way). I've always (and I mean ALWAYS) have had a love for the imaginary, stories, reading, fictional TV and movies since as far back as I can remember. I wasn't a very active child as I preferred to get lost in the land of anything other than real life. I was reading four or five levels higher than my grade level as a child and was always on top during our spelling quizzes. I've always wanted to create a story that someone else could become engrossed in - which is why I decided to join this forum here. I'm the type who needs a lot of feedback in order to feel like I'm going in the right direction. I always question and judge my writing before anybody else has had a chance to read it and it's holding me back. I've had countless people tell my my writing is great but I just don't see it! Anyways, I hope to be a semi-regular on this site (work is still important sadly) so I look forward to participating in discussions and if anybody ever wants something edited, I've been told I'm a pretty good editor! Talk to you later!
