An interest in writing has been building up with in me for the past several months which finally resulted in my first piece of voluntary writing, that I began last week. Being seventeen and still in High School, I have tons of resources available that would be useful in my writing endeavors. Something odd happened though. After completing the first scene of a script and reading it over, a feeling of embarasment swept over me. Not only was I embarassed by how the writing came out, but I was also mortified by the content. I felt and still feel dumb for picking the topic I chose and I don't want any one close to me to relate this story to any part of my life. This is what inspired me to search for alternative resources for criticsm and I am glad I found this site. I am most interested in writing scripts, due to my passion for cinema, and after reading the forums here, I have realized that my writing skills, especially in format, require some work before I can post any pieces for review. Moreover, I am happy to have found a writing community here and look forward to interacting with you all.
