My name is Charlotte, and I'm a new member (who woulda thought?) I've been writing since I was six. I went from picture books, to mystery novellas, some sci-fi and fantasy, and then I took a break. For about four years, I didn't write. Now, I'm an English major, hoping to teach English someday (preferably at the college level, but I'll take what I can get) and I realized that creative writing would be a great thing to get back into. Honestly, I have no clue what I'm going to write now. I have plenty of ideas swirling around in my head, but nothing's really been sticking. I might start small with flash fiction and short stories to grow my portfolio, and then dive into a novel when the time and place is right. Of course, you can't always plan these things. I thought putting myself in a community of fellow writers would be a good way to keep myself accountable and involved in a community of people with similar goals. I'm really excited to be here. If you guys have any advice for me on where I should start (with this forum or writing in general) I'd love to hear it. Have a great one!
