Hi. My real name is Xao ("chow"), but I go by Anna. I write under the pen name, Anna X.

I've been creating stories in my head for as long as I can remember. I honestly believe that good stories write themselves. You can always start writing a story, but the characters tell their own tales and if you're lucky enough, you get to merely be in the audience watching everything unfold. 

I remember finding out about WOTF some 20 years ago and wanting to enter. I never got to do that, but there's a time and place for everything. I just finished writing a short story I'm proud of and am looking forward to finally entering this quarter for the first time.

I write a lot of different genres. I like romance, fantasy, dark fantasy, science fiction, mysteries, thrillers, horror, paranormal, and supernatural. My big dream isn't to become famous or well known. My big dream is to share all the stories I know and love with the world. That's my ultimate goal.

I'm pretty excited to be here. Thank you for the opportunity to share my creativity with all of you.

@natasha123fav Hi Favour!

Welcome!

I just joined a few days ago and everyone is very helpful and awesome.

Make sure you check out the other parts of the forum. There’s a critique part if you’d like some feedback on your writing. I’m going through the workshop part right now and there’s some amazing advice from famous authors and judges of the contest. Wulf Moon has an incredible secrets workshop where he gives a zillion amazing pointers on how to be a better writer. There’s some really cool stuff to help you out!

Let me know if I can help! Good luck with Q4 and keep submitting to all the quarters!
