Hello! I have a tendency to dive right into forums, so here I am. I've read the rules and will do some exploring later, but I wanted to introduce myself first. I've loved writing my whole life. I mostly write poetry because that's what I enjoy most, but I finally got an idea for a novel that I love and am committed to because it hits close to home. The problem is, I keep finding myself running to Google with questions and sometimes not finding answers... and I'm still in the planning stages. So, in a nutshell, that's what brought me here. I'm looking forward to learning from fellow writers and becoming a part of this community.
