Hi, there!

My name's Arden, and I write.  Well, duh.  Why else would I be here?

I don't write enough, really.  I start things and don't finish them.  I finish them and don't edit them.  I edit them, and decide they're crap and file them away never to see the light of day again, and then I forget where I filed them, and can't find them when I decide to see if there was anything worth saving.

That is the story of my writing life.

I'm trying to fix that, and hoping ya'll can help.

Nice to have. Don't drink the punch. It's laced with 2-CB. By me.

The punch is infused with the tears of Tao Lin.

Don't feel intimidated to share your writing.  Most of us are nice and give constructive criticism.

Are we that intimidating? All we want is to be loved, its not our fault people keep filing restraining orders.

Thanks for the welcomes!  If it's insanity you folks are looking for, well...*ahem*

I'm perfectly sane.  Really.  At least, that's what my therapist tells me I should affirm to myself daily.  :)

Welcome, Arden...right there, your comment: "I don't write enough, really.  I start things and don't finish them.  I finish them and don't edit them.  I edit them, and decide they're crap and file them away never to see the light of day again, and then I forget where I filed them, and can't find them when I decide to see if there was anything worth saving." That's the same damn situation in which I've been stuck for too long - spinning my wheels and rocking the chassis - and I've come here for a boost or a tow...

Your comment's subject would be a great subject for a column here at LitReactor...
