    Exclamation Greetings and Salutations

    Hello, nice to interact with you all. My name is Dragon@16 obviously. Mainly because of my love of dragons and medieval times and other mythical creatures. I write mainly scripts and short stories, I also start novels, and will occasionally write other things. Turtles are my favorite animal. My favorite color is purple. I haven't written a lot lately, so I won't have a lot of posts for awhile. I'm a Trekkie! And I have recently fallen in love with Doctor Who. Medieval fiction is my favorite genre, but I also have a deep appreciation for realistic fiction, and I enjoy an occasional biography. Hmmm...I would really like to make some friends on here, since I don't have a lot where I live because I just moved here. If you could send me some writing prompts or challenges, I would really appreciate that. I joined this forum to encourage myself to write more. I don't have a lot of time to write because of school, and because I act in plays. For my career I would like to be a novelist. However, my main goal in life is to become an artist. Whether that is through art, music, or literature. I very much enjoy creating abstract art, and that's about it. If you want to know more, just ask. I promise I won't bite.
