I get so queasy when I try to break into a new forum and there isn't any nice place to do so! Nice that there is this cut-dried spot for me to introduce myself. Not that I'm any less nervous.

I am Lindsey, and this is my second time visiting this forum. First I visited the young writer's forum, but as it seems to have gone the way of the dinosaurs, I've come here instead. I suppose that is a good thing, though. I have an inkling this forum will be much more helpful.

Well, here is a small bit about me. I'm a very wee and inexperienced sixteen years old, and my writing is, to say the least, uncultured. I have a tendency to start projects and then stop, only to read them months later and despair that I'll ever be able to pick up the story where I abandoned it. Not to mention wondering whether I can even maintain the same tone, or if I even want to.

I've always loved writing, but only recently have I begun considering pursuing it as more than just a hobby. I get this crazy feeling that I will find more help here than anywhere else on this crazy internet.

Hi Lindsey,

And welcome. Take a look around at some of the recent intro posts. You'll see more than a few others coming from YW, and you'll see some threads that'll give you an idea what to expect.

Have fun and learn lots.

Joe

Not that I want to be rude to a newbie, but I have to disagree, based simply on your post. Your writing skills are obviously fine.

I hope we'll get a chance to sample your story-telling skills soon, as well.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who's nervous, or thinks the internet is crazy!

Your writing is excellent. I look forward to your storytelling as well.
