My given name is Sara and I'm from the U.S. I am a teacher by day and an aspiring writer by night/summer. My interests mostly lie in a YA arena with a fantasy bent, though I do write some more general fiction and some adult fiction (not ADULT adult ... just, not YA). Nearly everything I write is novel-length ... my ideas are normally too involved to become short stories.
I am very excited to be on the forums, to get feedback on my work and to help others in their goal of improving their own writing. Besides getting helpful feedback from other writers, I think this is one of the best ways to improve my writing skills. Being able to recognize weaknesses in other people's writing helps me know what to look for in my own.
I hope to get to know many of you as I look around the forums!
