Hello all, I suppose this will be my first and last attempt at a new member introduction. Hopefully, I won't make any newbie mistakes and break the forum's protocol with my first post. How I found writingforums.org: I was linked to this forum through a google web search and within a few moments of browsing, I saw how this community provides a great environment for writers to discuss, discover and explore their art. How long have I been writing? I started to write around four years ago, I was going through a very tough time in my life and what was just a pencil one day was an obession the next. Writing is what has taken my hand and led me through desparing times. Also, I'm very interested in the stories about how everyone has discovered their own passion to write.I sincerely hope I'm accepted here and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone. P.S.I'm creating a blog with more unnecessary new member creme filled ranting. Hard to resist? I know. And for those chosen few of you who will choose against visiting my blog, you should know that I commend your amazing willpower. Even if it's a little misguided.
