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.

You're at the right place. This forum is full of helpful, dedicated and talented writers. On top of that, many are actually glad to help! Amazing.

Why don't you read the threads here a bit, then go over to F&F and have a try at some critiques. After that, submit something there for critiques.

Welcome.

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!

Well, there are plenty of people here to bounce off of (that didn't sound quite right, did it?--I'm having mental images of human pinball here).

Personally I've always preferred to "do my own thing," not with other peoples' characters, so I get where you're coming from. I hope you'll find the comments and crits helpful.
