I’ve regularly read some different writing forums before, but I’ve only ever registered at one until now. I just got my first subscription issue of WD and I really want to be part of this community. I’ve been encouraged by a mentor to find a local, physical community to join, but I haven’t had any luck.
I’ve wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. I love to read and I love to write. I’m all about it. One of my favorite quotes on writing is actually from J. Michael Straczynski, Your competition is not with the vast number of folks out there who yearly pay out vast sums for workshops and writing books and send out bundles of hastily-written stories to editors…well-meaning but all too often deluded souls who have mistaken a passion for reading for the desire to write. Im definitely not judging anyone, in no way, shape or form, but I think he makes a great distinction here.
So, with a deep desire to write, Im looking forward to developing my writing muscle and meeting some good people.
See you on the forum,
