Hi everyone. Recently I've been doing some writing, and when looking for some answers I stumbled upon this site. I've been writing for quite a while, ever since I was young I aspired to write fantasy fiction novels. Unfortunately, growing up, as I became smarter I continually scrapped my ideas. An idea that a ten-year-old came up with seems pretty silly to a fourteen-year old. I'm also a bit of a perfectionist, and spend too much time writing about histories and setting and things like that, it's hard for me to actually sit down and complete a book. Anyway, lately I've been at it again, and I want to write my first complete novel. I've decided at the very least I can take some of my scrapped ideas from years ago and keep them archived as other stories that might exist in the same world at a different time in history. I'm getting together some ideas and characters for my story, and I'm hoping to complete it in a decent amount of time. My main weakness as a writer is probably the fact that I don't read very much. Partially because I've always liked to be on the creative side of things; I typically like interactive media, such as video games over TV or Movies. I've also never been very good at reading, I was always really slow. I can rarely read for long periods of time, and I find it straining. Although I love delving deep into lore and being a nerd when it comes to fantasy stuff, I find myself only reading from a few series and authors, often children's because it is quick and easy, and has a nostalgic factor, while still being entertaining. It's been years since I actually consistently spent time reading books. I'm interested in reading about fantasy worlds and everything, but it was never enough for me to spend large amounts of time on it.
