G'day. I guess this is the place for me to start Can't Post

Hello, my name is Jeremy, and I have an addiction to writing!

I have been fully immersed in literature, and have been ever since I was a little one. My first actual book was the hobbit, and quickly after that the Lord of the Rings (both given to me when i was 5 or 6) Ever since those two books I have decided that reading was my favorite thing in the world to do.

And for years I did, tentatively expanding my list of authors and genres. Before long I found that some stories just didn't go the way I wanted them to go. And some movies (tv shows, etc.) didn't go the way I wanted them to go (This is about when I turned 9 or 10) so I started writing fan fiction, though I didn't really last long there, maybe a few months, because very soon after that I started saying, scratch the whole thing and make a new world.

And then, I just started writing, mostly during class in my junior high school, and high school days (I still maintained a 3.8 in high school even though I never paid attention. Writing and reading was far more important to me than what my teachers had to say)

During my whole high school career I worked on 1 story, what later adapted to 3 books, WHICH i am currently re-condensing into one story again. But it was the baby. I have revised and revised and revised and revised it, then the harddrive I saved it on crashed, the back up died, and the back up disk was lost in my like 5th move. SO, now I am starting from scratch, and revamping it a little bit, as I work on a few side projects.

This site looks amazing, and seems that it will be a big help to me.

Any advice, or words of wisdom or encouragement, feel free to send me a message :)

Nice meeting you guys
