Hello all!

My name is Alexandra and i am writing since i was 5 years old. It started with the books with ending i didnt like (did you ever wanted to re-write little women?) and continue with my original stories.

When i was in the 10-th grade, the book i wrote, received an award in a city-writers-competition (actually everyone besides me were already published writers) with a proposal for a small publish.
I denied it, since i was sure that my book isn't ready and complete yet.

Since then i went to the university for a Bs.c in computers and then an MBA and the writing was put aside.
Couple months ago, i decided to come back to the writing and to develop the series i have started to write.

I never got a literature education and my experience is only from reading books (around 80 every year. I read a book in 3-4 days). I read all Orson Card books, including the one he wrote for beginner writers. This book opened my eyes for new ways to develop my ideas.

I would really love to participate in this community, ask questions and maybe provide an interesting point of view.

English is my third language, so excuse me for my mistakes. I don't write in English, although i read a lot (I read all the English writers in English).

Wow! Welcome to Hatrack! I'm sure you'll fit in quite nicely here! Not to mention, you have a lot of experience in literature! Maybe you could teach me a thing or two! [Big Grin]

Indeed welcome.

This is a good place to learn the craft of writing.

We are friendly and not mind sharing what we know---which may not be that much.

LD, your welcome message is missing its usual mention of a certain temperamental creature...!

Welcome, Alexandra. =)
