Since everyone seems to say this on their userpage, I would assume someone wants to know why I would join wikipedia, and spend time editing articles. Honestly, I have nothing better to do with my spare time, and I actually enjoy it.
along with reading my numerous dictionaries and word books Most of my work so far seems to be copyediting, though when I stumble across articles that I can really contribute to, I will. These tend to be in the categories related to literature, both in actually works, and the various phrases and techniques associated with writing.
I suppose the reason for this is that I have no TV and read extensively. It is often said that people who read can write, and I have found this true. I write novels, short stories, and poetry, though being a perfectionist, I have yet to publish anything. I'm waiting for the time when my ego swells enough to allow me to ignore the small holes in my plot, or the much less likely time, when I actually reach a stage of near perfection.
I am one of those people who is gifted (perhaps) with the ability of speaking in public, and have therefore dedicated myself to competitive speech and debate during the school year. Which allows us to digress to my age, which I don't exactly feel the need to reveal,
in much the same way as most of you would not feel the need to give me your birth date and social security number but will content myself with stating that I am not a legal adult, but definitely too mature for middle school. This (debate and public speaking) means that I have no life, which, if you have ever met a debater, or, if you happen to be one yourself, you will understand. For those of you who don't, I would be happy to explain it to you on my talk page.
On one final note, I would like to state that anyone who enjoys reading or writing is most definitely a friend of mine, and should not be afraid to email me, or start up a conversation. Same with musicians, and people who maintain a certain level of maturity while acting less than their age. These people understand the concept of fun. If you're afraid you don't fall into one of these categories, talk to me anyway, and I will endeavour not to frighten you away with any odd behaviors. I am new to wikipedia, but certainly not to the web, and I understand how mass sites like these work-- feel free to ask for help, give advice, and be civilized.
