How did you get into roleplaying?
I'm starting this because I'm extremely bored and feel like talking to people...and I have a feeling I'm not the only one mindlessly scanning the threads for something to do :)
SO. Something to start a conversation: When did you start rping, how did you get into it? I enjoy hearing this kind of thing, such as the people who have rps going on still that they started years ago with friends.
For me personally I started in middle school...I guess that was about 10 years ago. I can't remember if I'd heard about it online a little or how it got brought up but I actually started a couple notebooks with some friends. We roleplayed in class to help us stay awake...I'd hate to see those notebooks now, I'm sure I was terrible and my vocab wasn't great. But it's where it all started, and I can't believe I had friends in rl that wrote like that. It continued through a year or two of high school.
I've tried telling one friend about how I write online and they just started at me...confused. I guess my mistake was using the world "roleplay". It totally threw them off...haha ;)
