Hi there, I'm completely new to writing forums, but thought this would be a good outlet to put my work out. I've loved writing fiction (mostly action, adventure, thriller, fantasy, etc.) ever since I could hold a pencil. Just something about creating an entire imaginary world on paper is amazing to me. But, in recent years I must admit I've been a little lack luster, life getting in the way and all. Plus, I've never gotten real criticism on my writings outside of friends, family, and some professors. So, even though writing is something I do almost completely for pleasure, I want to get some real constructive criticism on my writing so it can be the best it can be. Makes sense to be good at something your passionate about, right? I'm sure I need a lot of work, but I'm willing to put in the effort so I can produce good material. Anyway, I really look forward to my time here and can't wait to start contributing!
