Hi everyone, Starting off my name is Ryan, friends call me Mackie. I am in no way a professional writer (I'm a web developer) but have always enjoyed telling stories and writing for fun so I figured a place like this will be nothing but great help. I wrote my first "movie" when I was about 8 (imo a sweet 10 page horror film) and have written off and on ever since, basically my goal right now is just to improve my skills. I've been reading some books/tutorials/blogs on formatting, character development/dialog and what not and already feel like I'm making great strides. I'm not expecting to have a movie made by Warner Brothers, but if something is considered good enough to be made in general that would be amazing. I'm going to try and post some examples of my stuff here for critiquing soon, so until then everyone have a good one, see everone around.
