Hey everybody! I'm 22, my name is Robin, and I'm from Oregon, USA. I've been writing for as long as I can remember, I think the first example I have is a terribly exciting series about my pet rock that I wrote when I was very, very young. My parents were huuuge hippies, so I grew up without TV or computers, which meant I had to fill my boredom with books.. and rocks and sticks and forcing my poor younger brother to dress up and act out all the parts in my stories. I recently stumbled upon these forums while on another if I google stuff about writing, it's kind of like writing, right? procrastination binge. I've been stuck with absolutely no progress for about a month now, which was feeling more and more terrible because I'm trying really hard to actually finish my book this time. I have, as I'm sure many of you do, so so many started and forgotten stories. But I have to finish one sometime, and I'm making it this one! So last night I stumbled upon these forums and told myself that I wasn't allowed to look through them until I actually got something done, writing-wise. I ended up hammering out 2,000 words in just a few hours before heading out to bed! Finally, I've unstuck myself, HOORAY! And for that I want to thank everyone on these forums for giving me the motivation to ignore the block and continue writing!
