Hi. Thanks for your welcome. Sorry I flies so late. I don't really know how to work this whole thing, so I'll just have a look around. Oh yeah, not to be snoopy, but which publisher published your first book and how did you find them? I'm kind of a child author and I'm only in primary school, soon to be graduating, so is there anyone who doesn't believe a degree is all you need to be a good writer? Thanks, and I hope I'll fit in!
Once I finish the YA series I'm currently working on, I have plans for a far more intense sci-fi fantasy project that I've been putting together in my head. As much as I enjoy the world I've created in the first - I am truly looking forward to getting to work on the second. My poor ADHD brain is just beside itself with details-details-details.
Thank you for the warm welcome to the site and much luck on all of your own projects!
I've written nothing... Well, that's not entirely true. When I was young, I asked my mum if she wanted to help me write a short story. She agreed as she had nothing better to do that afternoon and it evolved into a 350 odd page Fantasy novel. It got turned down everywhere and never got published. Reading some of it a couple of years ago, I can see why. To be honest, it WAS pretty bad.
I would like to write something else. My head is usually swimming with little stories, ideas, characters and scenes, but I'm having a hard time pinning them down and getting them out. I'll generally start the first few pages of a story then find I hit a dead end when I don't know what should happen next. I'm hoping this site and the people on it can help.
To be brutally honest, I'm an incredibly shy and introverted person and probably wouldn't have messaged anyone here if you hadn't messaged first, so thank you. :)
My interests generally lie in Fantasy for books, Sci-fi for TV but I also thoroughly enjoyed reading a couple of Kathy Reichs' books.
I hope I haven't scared you off by my tale of woe.
Oh, quick question. Do people put chapters up on this site for review or do writers generally keep thier stuff to themselves until it's finished? (Keeping in mind how new I am and critique would probably do me a world of good.)
Thanks for the warm welcome, Chuck! (...or should that be 'The Chuck'? ;) )
I look forward to checking out your work. I'm a sucker for a good scifi/horror story. My work is primarily short/medium fiction in a variety of genres stretching from historic thriller to science fiction to folklore and supernatural.
