Greetings everyone at writingforums.org! I'm Crystal, but you can all feel free to call me Tallie. I've been writing for as long as I can remember, though I regret that I haven't had much time to write for quite some time. During the year I'm a full-time high school student, extremely involved in extra-curricular activities. That doesn't leave much time for writing. This summer I'm looking to focus intensely on my writing and churn out some great work for my Governor's School of Creative Writing portfolio. I've written a lot of genres, still trying to find my niche. This summer I'm focusing on fantasy, which may well be my calling. I keep coming back to it time and time again. I'm friendly, and I've been looking for a large, supportive writing community for quite some time. I really think that I will enjoy my time here at writingforums.org and I hope to get to know a lot of you and that we can all work together to hone our skills and motivate each other!
