Hi! I am an avid reader, but never have actually written a complete story- other than in a creative writing class in high school. Part of my apprehension lies in the fact that I have no one available to take a look at my work and no one to bounce ideas off of. My friends aren't really into that sort of thing. The few who write do mostly stories based off of TV shows- zine type of work if you are familiar with that. I prefer writing original stories- if I am to invest the time and energy that writing involves. I am a sci-fi lover. I just finished the latest in the Bean series. I hope a sequel follows. I have always been more of a Bean than Ender fan. So, I am trully a writing newbie.

Welcome! I look forward to seeing some of your work, and reading some of your critiques. If you read a lot, you probably have a strong idea of what you like, and that helps immensely when it comes to critiquing. Good luck!
