    Hello! New kid here!

    Hello! I'm not a new writer, though I'm kind of really young so I don't have much "industry" experience like it seems everybody on here has. I barely have the time for writing because of school but since it's the summer time I'm trying to use all my time wisely between the load of summer work I have to do, college application stuff, art, and the stories I've been trying to write for months. The genres I usually write in is alternate history, urban fantasy and sci-fi. The story I'm writing currently is a mix of all those three things, though I also have a purely alternate history story that I'm working on too. I try to focus a lot on creating diversity in my stories because of my own diverse background so you'll be seeing a lot of that in my writing. Hopefully I can learn a few new things and join in on the conversation!

    Welcome There are a lot of young new writers here--and a lot of old new writers (age gives you time)--as well of a lot of very experienced people with excellent advice. Enjoy.
    It's a simple fact of life that not everyone will be your target audience.
