Hello from Japan (1 Viewer)



Hi there, this is my first post... and the first venture I've made into writing original fiction in a long time. I used to write quite often in middle school and high school, but was so self-conscious about my writing that I stopped. Huge mistake, which I am now beginning to realize!

I got back into writing about two years ago by writing fanfiction (judge me if you want, it got me back into writing, so it served its purpose!) and was surprised to find that a story I had originally envisioned as fanfiction had evolved into more of a "loosely inspired by" kind of thing.

At about the same time, the idea for the novel I'm currently TRYING to write started to grow and would not leave me alone! I'n currently trying to get an outline together, an writing down bits and pieces of scenes as they pop into my head. I'm a terrible outliner but I know that I'm not going to get such a complex storyline and such a huge number of characters coordinated without it.

I'm here to talk to other writers about anything and everything related to our craft... looking forward to getting to know all of you!
