Hello there, my name is Steve. My interests include writing (mostly fictional prose), playing madden (NFL video game), following american football, and long walks on the....wait no wrong website. Forget I said that. Moving on, I joined because I want to get back to writing. I used to write all the time but I have gotten away from it. This forum seems pretty well set up and I like the way the rules force community interaction. I like to think that critique is something that I am moderately adept at, and I hope that what I say can contribute to someone's success. Now, I can't honestly say that I joined this forum because I simply want to help others improve. That would just be a silly lie. I also would like to improve my own work, and i hope that the community here will help me with that as well. Just a little background about myself in case any stalkers out there are interested: I am 19, I live in the New England (in the US), I live with my parents, I work third shift security at the local hospital (which is sure to inspire some interesting writing), and I am currently on hiatus from school.
