    Hi!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by marie16, Sep 6, 2016.

    Hello, I'm Carly. I'm 15, black, and have always wanted to be a writer (and an English teacher, but whatever).
    I've just heard of this site but I thought it was really interesting so I joined. I've been writing for as long as I could write, I think I had notebooks full of stories and drawings from when I when I was six. I mainly plan on writing novels since I love developing characters for as long as a possibly can. I'm really good at planning stories out but not so good at writing those ideas down, but I can try.

    I hope I can get inspired by all of the writing you all create! Thanks for reading this!

    Hya Carly!
    Developing characters is my favourite part of writing too, and I often over develop. Oops.
    I hope you'll have fun here.

    Thanks! I'll try to do that.

    Thanks! I overdevelop a lot too, but I guess it helps in the end.

    Hi Marie, and welcome to WF!
    I guess getting started is the hardest part... But there's no other way, just weave your ideas into a story, come what may. :D I hope we'll be able to inspire and support you. :) Here's our New Member Quick Start to get you started. Have fun!
