Hello Fellow Writers, Erin checking in here. I started writing fantasy and historical fiction as a preteen (never finishing anything), got burned out writing papers in college, and finally started crafting stories again a year ago. I write for the love of the journey, of discovering characters and their stories. That said, I also love sharing the worlds in my head with my friends and family. I have not published anything yet--every time I sit down to write a query or cover letter I get frustrated and depressed and go back to writing the things I actually enjoy. I'm gearing up to try, though. As to why I'm here...I process things outwardly, and sometimes I just want to talk about the writing experience--preferably with people who won't recommend a local psychiatrist when I vent about how difficult it is to write a shopping list with my characters jabbering in the back of my head.
