Hi my name is Teddy and I'm a new writer/reader on this site. I honestly have no idea how the whole writing/posting system works here, but I'll eventually figure that out with uh... practice.

I like reading and writing short stories and the occasional novel, though it ranges on the topic. My style of writing is usually first person, with the sentences being sort of like fragments to show that these are the character's thoughts and not mine. If I write in third person, it's always really elaborate and detailed. Overly detailed if you ask me, I even skip over some of what I write because I think it's so boring.

So... yeah. I'm definitely not... boring (despite what was said before, aha), but I'm not the most interesting person either.

Well, for starters, you need points to post your writing. You get points by critiquing others' writing. The critique guidelines can be found here (there's also a helpful post here), and I suggest you read them to get an idea of what kind of critiques we like here. Also, be sure to check out the rules. That's the basics. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. And, of course, welcome to the site!
