'Lo. I'm not too sure what all you might find interesting in an introduction.

Anyway, I'm Jess, I'm thirteen, and I'm hopeless at finishing anything! Yay! I'm from Louisiana, and...I spend about every other day on the computer, all day. You'd think my eyes would've popped out by now.

Trying to work a few bugs outta my plot lately, I forgot an important detail. XD I read a lot, mostly fantasy; medieval, modern, any of it is great to me. Soo....Hi, then! :D

I guess that's a decent introduction. ^^

Welcome BattyBell. I'm a huge fantasy nut myself. Who's your favorite authors? Is what you're writing fantasy? I get a lot of ideas myself but I also find I don't finish a lot of them because . . . :D :lol:
Is this my reality or yours?

Thanks!

Too many. Libba Bray, Tamora Pierce, Meredith Ann Pierce, Phillip Pullman, some lady I can't remember...XD And, of course, J. K. Rowling. Lots of other people. What about you?

Yeah, it's modern fantasy. ^^ I was going to put up the first bit in a few minutes,

I just tend to get a new idea and abandon the old one. XD It's a never ending chain. Hopefully with NaNoWriMo I can get started on it easier. Last year I got pneumonia 2000 words into the book.

Meh, I've got the munchies. Maybe I'll go get a hunk of cheese. But the kitchen's too far away!

Hi, BattyBell...Try sticking to ONE idea and finishing it. You'll be amazed at the lift and confidence it will give you. Just note down the other ideas and set them aside. Then when you get old (like me, haha), you can look at your notes and always have ideas to work on.
nothing is ever simply Yes or No. There's always a But...

Hi BattyBell! Welcome to WT. It's good to see fresh faces and some of the "younger" crowd of writers.

Hello to you two too. ^^

Haha, but I just get that urge to go onto something else, and whatever I was working on first seems dead. Usually, though, the plot I come up with is better than the last. XD I'm trying to stick with this one, though. I'm very attached to the characters and the background.

Yeah I had the same problem. I started a novel last year and then a couple months later got tired of it. So now I am trying my hand at new story. Just stick with it sometimes you have a bad day, which can throw your writing off.

I do that way too often. :D Or sometimes I'll have just finished reading another book, and mine will start to take on qualities from it, so by the seventh chapter, it's a total rip-off. I need to stop reading when I write. The strangest plots always twist together.

I'm upset with myself 'cause I did something very stupid earlier. I wrote out these whole two chapters, and I thought I saved them. My word processor has document recovery, so it told me that I hadn't saved it all, only once before I had gotten much typing done. 'Course, just about anything you close gets brought up in recovery, so I ignored it. :/ It's gone now. I know I'm not making that mistake again. XD

What genre are you writing in now, out of curiosity?

Hi Jess :)

I am new here myself, although I am quite familiar with the site. Are you a Harry Potter fan too? I'm very fascinated by the book, as well as its fans.

Sounds interesting. I've only ever tried fantasy, but I like a good historical fiction.

Thanks. ^^ Nice to meet ya, Angel. I myself am a rock-lover.

Yes, Tipsytoe. :D I got stuck to the books in first grade. XD My school doesn't like it, but I love it.
