Right, well, hello. As you've probably guessed I don't like writing introductions. Actually, I think it's fairly safe to say that this is my first time writing an introduction for a forum, so excuse me if reading this is a complete waste of your time and bores you to death -- if it does feel free to haunt me. If you do feel the need to come and haunt me I'll give you a hint: start looking in England. Anyway, I'm Alex, I live in England and I'm 16. I finished school last summer and now that I'm in college doing an Electrical Engineering course I don't get much chance to do much writing, and I've been looking around for things to write and not found much inspiration or feedback, and there's only so much satisfaction that can be gained from writing just for your own purposes, so when I discovered this I thought I might as well join -- and maybe improve my skills. Most of what I write is quite dark and depressive, so it'll also be a good idea for me to branch out a bit and make things a little happier. That's pretty much all about me, I look forward to learning some stuff and hopefully writing a bit more. Alex.
