I'm a tad anti-social, so I don't like introducing myself . . . but I decided to be polite and do so anyway. I've been writing most of my life, but it's only in the past couple of years that I've really gotten serious about it. I found several highly recommended books, and since studying them, my writing has improved tremendously. I hope to start taking some classes later this year, and I've resolved to stop putting off the writing that I really want to do. (My problem is that I have so many ideas and plot outlines that I get overwhelmed and instead write nothing. I'm also obsessive-compulsive and a perfectionist, so it takes me a long time to edit my writing to my own standards.) So, that's me. Or a tiny sliver of me, anyway.
