Hi, I'm new to the forums. :') I much rather prefer to be called by the name 'Soulfighter', rather than my actual name which I wish not to reveal at the moment. I've been searching for a reliable website to post my original fictions/short stories/e.t.c. e.t.c for decades; I am so glad I came across this one. I've been writing for three years, but I wanted to find somewhere where other writers could review my pieces and send constructive criticism my way, which would help me towards my aim of writing as a potential professional author in the future. I do plan on eventually getting around to publishing my pieces on this website, but I'd like to get to know people on the forums first - ones who could help me out and ones who would be so kind as to send criticism my way. I'd also find it really helpful if anyone could PM me so that I know that I have someone to go to if I need any help finding my way around the website. I'd also be happy look up some of their pieces and review them upon request, as well as finding my own way to their stories. I was also wondering if this website has a beta system in place? I love to read when I'm not working on A-Level work for English Literature, Maths and Art. I read a wide-range of texts; including fanfictions, novels, books, reviews...everything! If I'm not typing up an essay on The Great War, or differentiating/integrating equations or researching and studying the brilliant works of Edvard Munch or Gustav Klimt, you will certainly find me locked up in my room, engrossed in a novel or reviewing a friend's fanfiction story. I'm going to go now - my 'rents are getting on my back to get upstairs. . PMs and replies would be very useful.
