Hi there everybody! I haven't really been writing seriously for an incredibly long time, and I haven't been on a good forum in a while either, so apologies if I forget any of the general etiquette, basic rules, anything like that! Basically, my name is James, I'm 19 and took an interest in writing when I started secondary school (about age 12 or so) and gradually got more and more involved, wrote short stories and all that good stuff. Then a couple of years later I got interested in music and started investing a lot of time in that and then in the NEXT couple of years following that, the time I spent writing got gradually smaller and smaller and now these days I don't write a lot at all. But I'm hoping to get back into writing, so I started looking for a forum, found this lovely little place, and now here we are! I look forward to sharing my work, reading your stuff, and generally having a good ol' chin-wag! So hello everybody!!!
