Hello. Now that I'm not in school anymore I no longer have a workshop to attend, so I've decided to join this forum. I love to workshop. I thrive on constructive criticism. I also love to give constructive criticism that is honest and objective - but also subjective at times. I've never been part of a writing forum before. I have a bachelor's in english communications. I minored in creative writing. I enrolled in several workshops in college, so I'm familiar with the etiquette. I suppose I finally found my voice in the last couple of years of writing. I have very little to show for the last decade I've spent scribbling into notebooks and MS Word. Most of it I've trashed - I only have one or two stories I'm truly proud of. I'm working on a novel right now, but I've realized it's an undertaking I wasn't prepared for. It's slow-going. I would like to eventually pursue a career in publishing. Farming trees would be nice as well. Of course, my ultimate goal is to become a published author. But that goes without saying.
