I joined this site when I was 19. I'm turning 26. The only reason I came back was because my girlfriend wanted to read everything I wrote. I read it to myself and the critiques, and decided this place is awesome! This forum literally helped my writing progress. I have built more and progressed on things that I have posted here. I wont be on all the time, maybe monthly, but this forum helped me build the confidence to keep writing.
And now that I'm older, I fully expect for everyone to be just as harsh. I've been procrastinating writing a book. I'm 30,000 words in to something I posted here but slightly revamped. My goal is to finish a book by August. If you don't think I can do it, read my 19/20 year old self old posts.
I'm back. And if Tau is still the mod...THANKS FOR THE CRITICISM AND MOTIVATION. You don't appreciate it until you're older but it made me a better writer.
No one knows me, but I'm an oldie and a goodie. From the hood, rags to less rags.
If I said I was Batman, would you believe me?
