Greetings!

The first time I saw this site, I thought it would be interesting, so I've decided to join! My girlfriend's a member and she's a much more talented writer, but I do enjoy her helping me out and repeatedly insisting that my ideas are better than hers. The only story I've completed is a lesbian vampire "romance," but I am bouncing a few ideas around in my free time nowadays.

Anyway, I'm sure this site will have lots of interesting advice about writing and countless interesting people, so I'm already eager to dive into this site!

Welcome! I am pretty new here too. Still trying to figure out where I belong. What genre do you write? What is the longest piece you have ever written? Do you tend to write from the female or male perspective most?

I am just trying to get to know you a little, I hope no one minds.

At this point, all I've written is romantic fantasy. I have finished a novel-length story, haven't edited it though. And the stories and ideas I've had are all from female perspectives.
