Hi there, I've always hated introducing myself on new forums because I've introduced myself so many times, I've become a tad repetitive, at least to me. Anyway, I'm an average 16 year old girl who's interested in reading and writing, and I've been doing it from the very first moment I could. (I'd give you an exact age but I can't remember) Just to get this out of the way before I go on, I hate it when I go on writing forums and am treated like a baby because of my age. I've been on writing forums before to see that everyone would talk to me like I was a baby instead of a grown up, sixteen year old girl. I want people to be ruthless in their reviews in my work and I don't want things to be sugar-coated. I don't think its possible to improve if people sugarcoat things for you. Just to let you know. Now that's out of the way, we can get into the real introducing. For me, I'm really like writing fantasy, murder mysteries, mysteries and angst, which I'm surprisingly interested in. Don't get me wrong, I'm not an emo or anything but for some reason I'm interested in writing sad moments in stories. I've dabbled in Fanfiction for a while now but since the sudden amount of homework, I haven't been updating for a while now. I've been writing fanfiction for a while now and I decided to leave it for a bit and concentrate on my original fiction. So then I began to go onto different writing sites and different writing forums and just post my work and give other people critiques. I just recently stumbled onto this forum and decided to give it a go, so that's why I'm here. I don't really know what else to say so I'll stop here. Hope to see a lot of you soon!
