Hey Guy's just joined up today, truth be told, I am an absolute hermit crab! I just wish there was a way to make it as a writer literally just staying home in front of the keyboard, the irony isn't lost on me, because that's exactly what I'm doing typing this... but, just joining a forum and getting engaged seems like harder work than sitting down writing a novel length manuscript. At any rate, I've self published one novel through amazon and apart from 20 or so downloads just from family and friends, I haven't received much feedback, not that theirs could be trusted, ie: corrupted with good intentions. Apart from that I am sitting down writing the sequel, about 30,000 words into the first draft and I thought it would be a good idea to try and get engaged on a writing forum. Cheers.
