Hello, I'm Lydia,
I often get called Lyd which I personally find rather annoying . I am twelve years old.
I've joined this website because of my love of writing. I enjoy writing horror and mythical type novels. The last book I finished reading was Fallen, which I liked but found slightly boring nearer to the end of the book. I can't stand Stephanie Meyer's Twilight saga! Personally, I feel that once you've read the first book, the next three books are rather dyre.
My goals are to finish a decent book. I have a tendency when writing stories to write the first few pages and then decide to start again. I have numerous untitled documents overloading my computer .
Thank you for reading these awful few paragraphs about myself .

Good for you! There aren't many of us here who like Twilight.

So, welcome to YWO. Please take a look at the Rules and the Critique Guidelines if you haven't already. And if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I like you already cause you agree that...
Spoiler:

Twilight sucks.

Welcome, Lydia. It seems you've given a good first impression, so I think congratulations are in order.

Knowing that you're twelve and that you hate Twilight brings immeasurable comfort into my life. You have no idea.

About your tendency, I know exactly what you mean. I do the same thing, and I can't seem to figure out why.

I hope you enjoy your time here.

Hey, howdy.

Well this is the most normal the intro threads have been in a while. Don't know how you managed to keep 'em sane...

So yeah, have fun here, write muchly, follow all the rules and things or ye shall be fed to the monsters (a.k.a the coloured names)

If you need anything, let me know and I'll refer you to a higher being

Hi Lydia =]
Welcome to YWO.
I've read Fallen as well, it's not a bad book.
I get that when writing as well, or else I just get bored and can't be bothered continuing the story :L
What authors do you like? What's your favourite book? What kinda music do you listen to? Any other hobbies apart from writing?
Woo, question overload xD
