I'm not a writer, and never have been. English, especially composition, was the bane of my existence in school. I still cringe when I read portions of my thesis, which I cried my way through. Hated it. I couldn't even pick up a book for two years after graduate school. Yet here I am 30,000 words into some crazy story that's been floating through my head for a while. It's beyond crap, and I don't know that I'll finish it - and don't have any other stories to tell if I don't - but here I am anyway! Excited to read the forums and see if I have a chance at improving my garbage.
