Hello everyone. I'm a hobbyist who occasionally write a few pages to scratch an itch, after I've watched or read an interesting work. Since english is not my first language, I find myself constantly having trouble with basic things, such as writing in passive voice, ignoring punctuation and using too many adverbs. I joined this forum in hopes of taking advantage of the advice and critique of the more experienced writers here, so that one day I might not be too embarrassed of showing my work to someone I know. Cheers.
