So... I haven't visited FM in what must be almost two years and I figured I'd get back. I'm currently writing more actively again, as in, actually organising my projects instead of just responding to plot bunnies.

Way back when I started as a participant of the 2YN class, and dropped out both times, after eleven and six months respectively, I think. I did learn a humonguous amount from it, though. I also love the May challenge: writing short stories.

I guess you could say I'm a challenge type writer, I love the occasion, the support, the drama of a good writing challenge. Probably also because NaNoWriMo was how I got started.

I write in my second language, and luckily there's a bunch of us over here (that's Holland) doing that, which means I'm part of a fantastic writer group of people just like me, crazy and sort of internationally oriented and writing in different genres.

I currently have two WIPs, a novella I'm rewriting because the main character changed from insecure to confident over the course of five chapters, and a novel that's magical realism.

So... I hope to see more of y'guys and it's great to be back. I'm off to explore these forums again.

Hi Arike! Welcome back to FM!

LOL on the plot bunnies. I've chased whole warrens of those myself.

We've made a lot of changes recently, so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Welcome back to the group. We still have plenty of challenges around here, like the March Madness challenge going on now, so hopefully that will keep you going.
