Hi all, I'm new here and just wanted to introduce myself. I feel a bit out-of-place though. I feel kind of young to be here. How old are most of the people on here? I sort of feel like a little kid trying to play on a big kids playground.
Is that a dumb idea?
I stumbled across wordtrip and thought it looked like a pretty cool place. I like to write, and i love to read. I like to read most things, although usually not the sappy love stories.

Welcome! You're never too young to write, or too old for that matter.

Thanks everyone! I didn't really mean everyone sounded old...just adults. i like to write short stories, a few really sucky poems, and i guess i like to write novels. most of the time though, i just end up writing a chapter or two into the novel and then i stop. that's not good.
i'll probably check out some challenges soon. they seem pretty cool.

Hi, Nicole! Are you a working person or in school? We are all kinds here...some in school, some working, some retired...but all with a shared interest in writing and publishing. Some published, some journalists, some still trying to break in.
Do try the challenges and get your feet wet.

Welcome Nichole! I joined the wt at the age of 14 and everyone made sure that I was a part of the writing world. Three years later everyone is still accepting of me and my writing has improved dramatically.
I am sure you will find a spot here.

By the way, nice avatar, nick.

Hey welcome! It doesn't matter what age you are, writing comes! You'll like it here.

A belated welcome do our latest fledgling...now worries about age here my dear...we welcome all...I myself won't admit to being about 2000 years of age, that way I look dang good for my age..wink..
as for the range we have reader/writers as young as 13 and then the ancient ones...well we have several fighting for that title...but since I am immortal I stay out of that battle...
so you say you write sucky poems..there is no such thing..just an unseasoned poet....lol...do you like horror? Try writing me a halloween sonnet in this thread...

Can't write a sonnet? how about a poem just in time for halloween....just start writing and see what comes out...you never know, you may surprise yourself.
