This is always, ALWAYS, the most awkward part. Even in person introducing yourself can be difficult. Feel free to call me Eff. I am, hmm, not quite a beginner writer. I think like most I've been writing stories in one form or another for years, but it's only been recently that I've really delved into how to make my stories better. Right now I'm really working on crafting plot and creating three-dimensional characters. I chose to write in fanfiction because I don't ever want writing to feel like work. While there is a lot of stress when writers get popular I don't qualify as of yet, and I like the ability to pick up an idea, put it down, play with something else, or maybe discard it without having to take anyone else's opinion into it. I might write original fiction to get published one day, but it is far down the road from here.
