Hi everybody! I'm happy to be a part of this forum, as it seems like it will be very helpful. Writing has always been a hobby and now that I'm getting older I want to improve and maybe go somewhere with it, I love it. As for getting older today is my 18th birthday. So I already accomplished the getting older part. Now for the improving my writing. I'm looking for a genre to focus on but cannot decide. Cool stuff about me, I have a pet rat named Piper. My dad got me an iPad for my birthday ( it's really cool). My favorite class is an english class, political tought. Next semester i'll be stuck taking public speaking, ew, for English. I like art, walking my dog, attempting to write poetry, and voleunteering at the local noosing home. So hi!
