Hey there, folks. I just joined and thought I'd introduce myself here. I recently decided I'd like to take up a new hobby, and, though I've never written anything that wasn't school-related before, I'd like to try my hand at writing creatively to see if it appeals to me. As a longtime gamer and avid fantasy/anime fan, I've always liked delving into made-up worlds and I've also recently started reading more fiction (just finished Wheel of Time). Since I like losing myself in the imaginations of others so much, I thought it might be worth digging into my own to see if there's anything interesting hiding in there. I'm somewhat shy and apprehensive because this is something so new to me, but I'm eager to see where it leads.
