Hi Anum, and welcome to ! Can I call you "Anum"? Or maybe "Zehra"? What about "A.Z." in a real gangsta' sort of way? Well, whatever you let me call ya', I hope you enjoy it here!
So what genres do you like to write?
Are you thinking of posting any of your work soon? If so, and you find yourself in need of a critique, just PM/VM me and I'd be happy to help.
Again, welcome to the site!

English isn't my first language either, Anum.

I speak Arabic actually. English is more of a second language, but still.

Welcome. Please enjoy your stay at scenic Young Writers Towers. Pay no attention to the roaches in the bathroom, or the slightly homeless man in your closet (if he bites you, I must inform that we are not responsible for any disease you may be given).

Hey hey. Welcome...

"Kite Runner" and "A Thousand Splendid Suns" are amazing books. I read them a while ago, but loved them. You have good taste.

Follow the rules, as Rose said, and when in doubt, go with overly formal rather than... well... not.

What do you like to write?
Reading or writing?
Yellow or Green?
Sand or sea?
Ice-cubes- yes/no?

Funny. No one ever seems to answer my questions. I suppose they don't have much relevance really. Nor are they interesting. But oh well.

I've always wanted to do philosphy. It's really interesting. You're interesting. Yeah.

English isn't my first language either. Although, that's cheating because it came hand in hand with the other. But don't worry. You aren't the only one, by a long stretch.

Hope you have a lovely stay. Alice is a funny one, by the way.

Let me know if you need anything, or just want to talk. I have no life, so I'm pretty much always available...
