I'm a writer, just like the rest of you. I'm seventeen years old, and I'm a senior in high school this year. Which means I have to start thinking about my future, and it's a little scary. There's so many things to be thinking about. And I might not have my family standing beside me. But there's one thing I'm sure about: I want to continue writing. I don't know if I could make a career out of it, or if I even want to, but writing is something that I'll always enjoy, and I'll never give it up as long as I can. I love being able to create and shape my own characters and their stories, and watching my characters as they grow and change. It's such a beautiful thing, and for a while I forgot what that felt like. Now that I've started writing again, I don't know why I ever stopped. My goal is to stick with my writing, whether it becomes my career or something I do for myself. I want to share it with people, to transport them into these stories and for them to feel the same way I felt when I was creating them. I'm excited to begin writing again, and to become a part of this seemingly wonderful community! I hope that I will be able to contribute something, even though I am a bit young.
