Erm, hi there! Call me Lilith, or anything you like that starts with L, really. I'm 17 from the North of England and I'm a writer, much like everyone else here. I don't pretend to be any good at writing, but I think it's something that more people should do, especially young people. As such, I've set up my own forum to encourage young people to write, although so far it isn't vastly succesful. I've been writing since I was very young, and although it isn't a talent of mine I really feel it's helped me to develop as a person - I've always had difficulties with communication until recent years, and I feel writing helped me out of this problem. I do have a life outside of writing, however; I'm a maths student studying for my A levels and hoping to go to Uni next year. I'm also a dancer, and a violinist, and I've just started learning to play guitar. I can't think of anything else to say... Hi. Happy New Year!
