Hi all! I'm another new kid on the block. I'm one of those people that has an English degree, but never figured out what to do with it, so I ended up doing nothing with it. I've been scribbling fiction stories (okay, chick lit) for about as long as I can remember, but finished very few of them. I've definitely never had anything published. After trolling through various forums and seeing everyone else, I feel grossly incompetent when it comes to the actual writing world. However, I currently I find myself with loads of time and a renewed energy to write. I do consider myself a Grammar Nazi, but I have no doubt that there are probably at least two errors in this very post. I don't always practice what I preach. I've been hacking away at one novel for about two and half years now--I'm currently just shy of 50,000 words. My goal is to eventually get some kind of publication. So anyway, that's my story. I'm looking forward to finally having a sounding board other than the inside of my own head.
