    Hi, and welcome! If I were you, I wouldn't try to sort out your novel for the time being. Take a good look around the forums and get a feel for the way other people write. Read some of the threads in the Writing Discussion forum - you'll find all sorts of wisdom there. Gradually you will begin to feel more comfortable about your own writing. If you need help with some aspect of writing yourself, post your question into a new thread on the Writing Discussion forum and you will find people are glad to help.

    Hai! I am maunakea, and I'm new to posting here. I figured I'd go ahead and ask my question here since I can't make a thread for it yet.
    I'm currently writing a piece of fiction in first person present tense, myself as the narrator. I'm looking for some advice on narrator knowledge, how to incorporate scenes with characters away from mine, when my character is unconscious or asleep, stuff like that. I have things like this I want to include in the writing, but with my set up I don't know if I should do that when my character doesn't know these things and is narrating. I could always change the set up, but first person present tense just feels right to me for this piece. Any advice is much appreciated. ^-^

    Hi, how's it going, I'm new here and I just started into reading and discovered how much I enjoyed it, also started into writing and I guess I'm going ok and I'd like to make some new friends that like to read, and that's what brought me into this page, also I'd like to write with others, I think it would be a funny thing to do, so why not.

    Hello Hairball,

    I just loved your post and feel the warmth coming from you already. I registered with this forum a few days ago, and introduced myself with a brief synopsis of my autobiography 'White Zulu', about being raised by Zulus on a remote cattle ranch in South Africa.

    I also put out a couple of friendly and sympathetic replies to others who have expressed their problems with writers' block.

    Sadly I've had nothing back at all. Nobody has expressed any interest in the description of my life/autobiography It's like talking into an abyss. What am I doing wrong? Am I posting in the wrong threads?

    Any feedback from you would be most welcome,
    Regards,
    Fi
