Hello. Nice to meet you. And that's about all I can ever think to say when introduced to anyone. Sorry. I would've just started posting in the other threads but it seems like breaking protocol, and not really the thing to do for someone who's just getting serious about writing. I thought joining a writers' group would help me in the process of actually writing down a couple of stories that I've had spinning around my head for ages. I'm trying to hone my skills with short stories but most of them are somehow connected to the two novel ideas. In other words, to actually write. I figured this was a good place to begin.
