Hello, I'm new here and my name is Karisa. I enjoy art in general but writing and painting are my favorite pastimes. I'm here to learn more about writing (fiction in particular) in a way that is appealing for the reader. I look forward to learning much from everyone here and entering in the forums many short story contests. I'd also like to add that I think this forum is a great resource for writers. I've already checked out the links to AngentQuery, MissSnark, and Saysmom which I find very helpful. So yeah, thanks for listening to me blab about myself. Now time for some story writing!
