    Just Another Introduction

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by malaupp, Dec 15, 2016.

    Hullo everyone!

    My name is Margaret. I'm a 23 year old graduate student in Iowa. I joined because after finishing my fourth manuscript (thank you, NaNoWriMo) I realized it was time to get serious about improving my writing and actually gathering up the courage to look at getting published. So rather than roll around in the writing subforums of some larger forum sites, I decided to seek out one that was dedicated to it. I look forward to chatting/working/commiserating with everyone. :D

    'sup Malaupp. Welcome
    Four manuscripts at 23. Way to go. I was still using crayons back then (a budding Dan Brown).

    Hope you stick around. :)

    Welcome here and have fun polishing up your critique-skills - because if you see flaws in others writings then you'll mostly see them in your own (though not all).

    But most of all, just have fun :)

    Hi, Margaret! Welcome!

    What kind of stuff are you writing?

    Well I've been obsessed with writing since I was 7 or 8, so I would hope I would have at least a couple over a decade later. xD But thank you for the support! Unfortunately, I haven't sent any out to a publisher, so I don't even know if they're any good. :/

    Yeah, I've already begun wondering about the uses of italics. xD

    Thanks! Well 2 of my 4 completed manuscripts are time travel (the first two of what will hopefully become a series). Another is a mock biography of a serial killer and the fourth is a sort of Nicholas Sparks-esque drama (minus the romance). Beyond that I have a plethora of partially done manuscripts and story ideas, ranging from medieval political drama (I adore court intrigue), dystopias, and other various fiction. A lot of the time I can never be sure what the genres of my stories are, to be honest.
