My name is Morgan and of course, I'm very new to the forums. I've been writing for a long time. I mean a really long time. I was writing poems and stories in grade school! The reason why I've joined the forums is that while I've taken to writing for my own enjoyment, I want to see where I'm at. It's so important for me to improve. But even then, I find myself so nervous when I'm up against writers that have endured heavy critique and have really taken their craft more seriously than I have in the past. So I'm putting aside my fear and diving right in. I'm looking forward to interacting with not only the more experienced writers, but writers like me that are open to criticism and need a lot of work.
