Hi everyone, Windcaller here! After browsing the forums for some time, reading the threads and getting a general feel of the site, I decided to join. I usually lurk forums, but I thought it was time to push myself out of my comfort zone. I'm not really new to creative writing per se, but I definitely have a lot learn about the craft. In another lifetime, I used to write short stories on an old writing site, but I eventually lost interest and moved on to other things. However, I recently came back to the hobby after an English teacher of mine urged me to give it another try. Thanks to school, I haven't been able to write anything, but now that I'm on a much-deserved summer break (after a solid year and a half of continuous schooling), I can finally afford the time to rekindle my old passion. Currently, I'm writing a short story. My preferred genre is fantasy, but I might experiment with other genres to challenge myself and write outside my comfort zone (a running theme, I now find). Whether I'll consider publishing... Well, I'll leave that problem for future-me In the meantime, I'll have fun with magic, fantastical lands, and otherworldly creatures. I hope to learn a lot here and improve my craft. See you all around!
