Hi y'all! Just wanted to introduce myself on here before posting in the other categories. I only discovered this site yesterday but I think I'm going to have fun here. Anyway, I'm Kitty, 22, college student, and I live in Northern California. I'm not published and I have a hard time letting anyone read what I write, for fear they'll think it's bad. It took me 10 years of writing practice to be able to let my own mum read the first chapter of my latest work, and now I'm thinking how stupid it was and how embarrassed I am that she read it. Oh well. I guess that's why I'm on here, to get other writers' critique and help so I won't be embarrassed to let friends and family read my writing. My favorite genre to write is historical fiction, anywhere from the Neolithic to the medieval era. I love doing the research for historic settings and am a stickler for historical accuracy. Thanks for reading!
