Hi! New 17-year-old writer here.
« on: October 12, 2018, 12:12:47 PM »
Hello! Please call me Lanette. I am a 17-year-old girl of Asian descent. My family is now based in the UK, however. English is not my first language; it is not even my second! It's my third, but I do feel like I write exceptionally well in it. I hope to find a community that will help me progress as an aspirant author. I have always felt as though my time was running out, to be honest; but my older friends always remind me that I have so many years ahead of me and that it's uncommon for someone my age to be traditionally published. I'm trying not to rush as much as I used to, and I know that there's room for improvement for every author, including the established professionals. Regardless, I hope you like the samples I post in other boards. (note: I'm aware that constructive feedback isn't always positive! I'm sensitive, but I'll take it if I want to be a writer.) This was so long! I'm sorry! I can be so voluble sometimes.  :-X I hope I can make some friends here and meet people who'll guide me.  :D

Welcome to MWC, Lanette. Your English is excellent. I'm glad to see you making use of the 50 posts thread to gain your editing privileges as a Jr. Member. I look forward to seeing some of your writing. Try to offer the other writers some feedback on their posts and you will get more comments on your own work. Have a browse around and if you have any questions, let me know. I'm here to help.
