I guess you could call me an aspiring author. I have a lot of good stories that I want to get out there and share with other people. I found this site because I was searching Google for resources that could be used to help me improve. A little about me. I'm Jack, a 22 year old Canadian. I've been interested in writing for as long as I can remember, and I've even tried it a few times, but I don't recall ever having made it past the very first page. I've been quite good at spelling since elementary school, but my actual knowledge of the English language is very poor. I don't know what adverbs are... or adjectives. I don't know any of that. I'm also guilty of excessive run-on sentences, but I'm trying to fix that. Sometimes, though, I end up putting periods where making the sentence longer might make more sense. I'm also a bit confused about my comma usage (just read this post and you'll understand what I mean). If I am asked by someone who doesn't have English as their native language to help them, I am able to look at their sentences and notice if they're wrong or right, and I can even correct them. What always stumps me, though, is when they ask "why". It's at that point when I can't explain why the sentence I gave them makes more sense than the one they came up with. The genres I'm interested in the most are fantasy and science fiction. I believe those two let my mind expand the most and they can give me the most material to write with. When I'm writing, I don't like being bound by reality. That's all about me in regards to my writing aspirations. If there's anything else you want to know, feel free to ask. I hope to meet many great people here. See you around!
