It has been around two weeks since I first found this site and more or less a week since I signed up so I figured introductions are due. Simple story is that in high school I realized I was a terrible artist. Frustrated in those confusing years and unable to express myself I began reading; the one thing I knew I could do proficiently. Before long this obsessive reading led to me taking up writing. I started with poems, essays, non-fiction works, etc. Later I moved on to longer works and more original fictional works. Six years later and I still write when I have the time.
I found this site at an interesting time. I had recently finished a horror novelette and a few articles on this site reminded me a little of the main location in my story. After becoming hopelessly addicted to reading the articles here I figured I mind as well try it out myself. I composed two story outlines before throwing them out as too similar to others on the site. After spending much more time I have outlined a new one I find unique. Who knows if it will ever see the light of day but it's my first fair shot.
Anyways, I mostly lurk around but if I see spelling/grammar mistakes I'm prone to correcting them and I enjoy getting feedback on my writing so you may see me around.
Cheers and keep up the awesome writing folks!
