Hi, I am kind of new here (as in I noticed this section when it was too late to classify myself as completely new). I adore writing, and so far the only people who skimmed through, delved into or otherwise read my concoctions were my friends. So I am looking forward to hearing the hopefully constructive but more probably soul-crushing critique that shall be either bestowed upon or that shall rain upon (depending on the type of said critique) my feeble creations from the mighty and infallible reviewers at this site (sigh...those 20 posts seem like an awful lot of work...) I am not a pro and I don't wish to set upon the arduous of becoming one (and I already have another cruel mistress (some call her the queen of all sciences)) So as they say in Texas: Hi y'all (btw. I have no affiliation with Texas or any English-speaking country whatsoever) P.S. I am sorry if this verbose introduction bored you.
