I hate introducing myself.. >.<
Anyways, I'm Surperdude, if you've been on any other forums or videogames, you might have seen me before under the username Mr_SuperDude__
I'm a very fast reader, because I just can't wait to see what happens next, and I like to write fantasy fiction, even though I've never actually finished a story. I did finish "The Traveller", but it was meant to be longer, and I turned it in for a school project, but had to cut it short and the ending was lame...
My goal is to improve my middle game. I think I can write pretty decent beginnings, and I have great ideas for the ends, but I always get stuck on the middle and it all ends up sounding awful.
I already submitted a piece that I just wrote, not my best, but I kinda liked it. It's called "My Grandfather's Story" and it's under the realistic short story section, check it out and give me your views and crits!

Howdy! Welcome.

I have the same problem as you. The middle. Well, with me, it's the bits either side of the middle. Anyway, Welcome. ^_^

Hello, and welcome to Young Writers Online. I would like to inform you that any appendages left outside the car will be eaten by ravenous gorillas and/or torn off by The Whale. No compensation will be given for lost appendages. If at any time you would like to leave the car, you must first stand up, explain yourself, and then we will gladly throw you to the Pit Of Horror.

Thank you, and again, welcome.

Welcome! I have a similar problem, and it's made me forego writing stories all together. D= I'm glad you have the initiative I don't! ^_^ I'd love to help you out on your journey, and maybe you'll inspire me to get back on that horse again and write me some non-poetry!

Have fun here at YWO! -S_P

Your enthusiasm is blinding.

I kid, I kid. Welcome to YWO, old boy, and I hope you enjoy your stay. Look both ways before crossing the forums and please, please watch out for the gremlins that like to relieve themselves all over the users' profile pages.

Well, you all are just rays of sunshine, aren't ya's?

Hey there, welcome to the forum; I happen to be one of the gremlins Iri speaks of. And, good username, haha, but- NO OFFENSE- it reminds me of something funny.
