My name I'll go by on here is shambles. I have been writing fr as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until recently that it got serious. I started out in elementary school writing fantasy stories with my friends as characters and then I moved on to writing realistic stories with characters of my own creation. Now I am writing both fantasy and realistic! I was so excited to find this site because not many people that I know are interested in writing whatsoever. Most people I know don't even enjoy reading all that much. I am an avid reader and huge fan of the Harry Potter series and the Percy Jackson series (both Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus). My ultimate goal in writing is to publish my own series that will someday be ranked close to my favorites, although I will never be ranked alongside them. So, to sum it all up, I am very grateful that I found this site and I look forward to becoming a member of this community! Nice to meet you all!
