Hey I'm a new member to this place, and it seems really appealing to me, so I thought I'd make an account and join. I'm 16 years old and I'm a voracious reader, although I wish the same could be said of my writing. I've had a history of writing slowly and having trouble sustaining the plots of all my ideas. Sometimes - and these moments are, unfortunately, few and far between - a bolt of inspiration hits me, and at these times it feels like I'm not actually writing, more like pouring out whatever's going on in my head. I joined the forum to find more people like me and to get constructive criticism for my scant few pieces of writing, though I do seem to have trouble making a new post in the short stories section. Is there a certain number of posts I have to make before I can start a new thread?
