Hello from down under. (1 Viewer)



Hello everyone,

This is my first time on a writing forum. I'm 30,000 words (about 25%) into my first draft of my first novel. I am enjoying every minute of it even though it has taken me 18 months to get to this stage. (over a year of planning before I even started the first chapter)

Anyhow, I thought I should try to expand my horizons by joining this wonderful forum (a bit of a suck I know) as I don't have anyone where I live that shares a passion for writing.

I hope to complete my first draft by Xmas as I am not finding the writing too difficult thanks to the story outline I spent a year developing. I think that's when the real work will begin for me because I am not best with grammar and spelling. (every time I read something I wrote a while back I cringe at the mistakes)

My ultimate goal is of course to have my work published but I will settle for a completed and polished manuscript if that can't happen.

I'll try not to be a stranger here as work is busy and my spare time is devoted to physically writing my book.:thumbl:
