    Hi everyone, introducing myself. A wannabe writer currently and future professional writer, hopefully! I write a lot for my job but most interested in pursuing a new career in fiction writing, particularly TV, film or radio. Looking forward to posting lots more on here.

    A little about me: I am a CPA and have worked in finance for most of my career. I specialized in writing, and interpreting tax legislation. I used to love creative writing, but over the years I have let it slip away. Now that I'm semi-retired, it's time to get back to it. So here I am, half way finishing my first draft of a Historical Crime/Romance.

    I look forward to many more great discussions!

    Welcome, Taylor! What period is your novel going to be set in?

    I hope we don't let you down, castlecreation! I find that coaxing yourself to write just a little every day can help to break through the dreaded WB. Fiction can be its own inspiration.

    The story takes place in 1990. It is based on a combination of a number of real life crimes of the same nature that took place in the U.S. over a two year period. The plot covers the events that lead up to the crime, and the crime happens at the end. All of the characters are ficticious, but based on researching actual people and certain industries. Thanks for asking!

    Hi, just signed up. I decided to try writing recently. I've had an idea floating around in my head for some time so sat down and knocked something out quickly. I've not shown anyone, sometimes I read it and think it's rubbish, other times think it's not that bad. I'd love to post it in the forum to get some feedback from actual writers. How would I go about doing that? I could post the opening chapter which is about 3000 words, is that too long for a post?

    Welcome Post it in the fiction workshop, though you might need to make 10 non-thread-starting posts first (commenting on others' submissions is a good way to get through this). 3K words is fine.

    because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.

    Welcome, and good luck with your first attempt. Move heaven and earth to finish it--drive yourself toward that goal. That's your first major milestone. Good luck!
