I'm a some-time lurker and I thought I should finally make myself known! I'm basically a beginner. I've never written substantially outside of school (which was some years ago now). I've always felt writing would be a good outlet for me but only recently began seriously considering it. One trouble I have is focus. Although I'd love to write something, I'm still waiting for that little spark of inspiration to turn it into reality. I guess I'm hoping that reading all these ideas on this forum will ignite something for me. I'm interested in writing prose, although I do enjoy poetry and I'd like to do that too. When I wrote in school (as a hobby) it was mostly poetry. Anyway, I hope that I stick around and get to know you all.
