Greetings, all. As the title of this thread may suggest, I join forums on impulse. I do this because I'm socially awkward and like to attempt to socialise beyond my failings at such things offline. I've deemed joining this forum to be a worthy endeavor because I have always been a writer, wouldn't you know. I've been in a bit of a slump for a long while, now, however, and as such, I am hoping that being involved in discussions with other writers (even if it's simply as an observer) will help me to get back into writing more so that I may actually pursue this passion. I actually studied literature in college, and do have a BA in English. This is most likely less impressive than it sounds, because I'm not really that on top of things, and my classes did not cover as much as people seem to expect them to have. Whether or not I actually end up being particularly active around here remains to be seen, because I look for a certain vibe in online communities, and I can't really know if that vibe is present until I've interacted with some of the regulars personally. I do hope to stick around, and I hope to have many nice discussions with you lot about the things we like to write and beyond. Oh, and I respond to Carl or Andy, if you don't want to call me TheSameDullKnife.
