Hello everybody! I spent about an hour wondering whether I really wanted to register here or not but as you can see, I took the plunge. As you may or may not have guessed from the Title, I am somewhat scared. I don't no why but I can't seem to shake that feeling in my gut that I used to get when the teacher singled me out in school. I suppose that my choice for joining was selfish in a way because I only just recently started writing again after so many years of stifling myself to avoid being singled out by the less friendly people I grew up with and I wanted a "pat on the back" so to speak. But enough about my younger self's cowardice I am here now and the urge to write has recently been bursting from me. I would very much like to be on friendly terms with the general community and do plan on spending some time on here when I'm not at college, work or just generally busy. I am in the process of writing my first project which I am hoping (naively) to have published eventually but it's a goal on a very distant horizon and one I try not to get too caught up in lest I set myself up for a fall. My worst enemy, like any writer, is myself. I frequently have to struggle with my own confidence problems, which I'm sure many of you can relate to, and my fear of being singled out, then falling on my face. I'll always try to be polite to you when I speak, but I may require coaxing because I'm a bit of a turtle. Thanks in advance for your replies and what I hope will be kind words.
