Hello everyone, I'm Steve! I frequent a few writing forums and then this weekend I found this place. I guess I just like chatting with my fellow writers, helping out with a bit of critique, and meeting new people in the same boat as myself. ....Boy, that makes me sound SO well-adjusted when I type it out...it feels weird!
I gotta say though, I like the minty green colour around here - makes me want to go and buy some mint-choc chip ice-cream. :snowman:

I've currently got a self-published book out, so I'm familiar with all the ins and outs; not only about the work involved but how daunting the whole thing is to newbies. I wont go off promoting myself or my book here, but if anyone's curious it's called Solar Rift 2120 and a google search will sort you out... I even think it lists my website in the top three results... *runs off to check* Yep. Wow, anyone would think I actually know what I'm doing! Hah!
If there are any newbies reading this, you should take hope - im the perfect example that if a complete numpty like me can do it, then you can, too!

But anyway, from what I've looked over so far, this place looks like a nice and relaxed place, so I hope I fit in and hope to call a few of you friends before long. Hope you've all had a nice weekend!

Steve

Hi Steve, and welcome!

IMO no writer is well-adjusted. We create worlds and characters that are often off-kilter, because a novel set in a bland world filled with milquetoast characters would be pretty dull.

Yep, us Brits have our own lingo along with our own peculiar brand of humour. :) Welcome to WF and our creative community! Well done on not only completing but publishing your first book.
Out of interest how did you find us?
Anyways, I am sure you will soon discover we are a friendly group so hopefully you will stick around.

Thanks for the warm welcome, folks!
And you have google to thank, Pip. I was pondering if there were any writing forums I might not be aware of, so I literally googled "writing forums" and this place came top of the search results.

I dunno what you guys do to please the Algorithm God, but it obviously works. :sunny:
