So, I have yet to introduce myself. My name is Jim, I’m 23. I joined Writing Forums a few months ago and have been perusing its contents since. I am a new writer, but one who is very interested and dedicated to becoming the best one that I can be. Unfortunately, it took me until very recently to fully discover my love for writing and storytelling at large. But that’s ok, because I have discovered it! I need a toooonnn of work to become the writer that I hope to be and think that I will be able to be, but that’s what this forum if for, so I am excited to learn and be challenged. I’m particularly interested in writing fantasy and have a novel in that genre that I have been working on for a while, but I also have been experimenting with all sorts of different genres and styles. I also really like writing short stories, these tend to me more in the realist vein. I hope to be a fixture on this forum and in the writing world at large in coming years and learn and achieve all that I can. I’m fairly open to criticism, so feel free to hit me with some of that whenever it’s appropriate (which will probably be always), hopefully it will help me in my learning and ultimately aid me in optimizing my potential. I’m looking forward to getting to know some of you guys in this community, so yea, that's a bit of me, and HI!
