Hello! And no, contrary to the title, I do not specifically write fairytales. Although, now that I think about it, that could be a good idea. I just like telling stories, if they're worth telling. I usually end up writing children's fantasy/sci-fi, but I really like trying all sorts of genres. Oh, and if you want to roleplay, just PM me, because I'm always up for that! Roleplaying has really helped me develop my style over the years. That and it's just plain fun. So, about me, the newbie... I lived in France the first sixteen years of my life (and yes, I do write in French too). So I'm still getting used to America. I completed Nanowrimo the first year I tried it, but haven't been able to since. I hate editing my stuff, mostly because I feel like I put enough thought into it the first time, and I don't want to have to exert even more effort to change -even if that change makes it better. But it's a process that must be done, and I'm slowly learning how to deal with it. Aaaaand... this is my favorite smiley --> (so I appologize in advance for my excessive use of my buddy here Mr. Green) Any suggestions where I should start? I was thinking I should tackle this forum one section at a time.
