Well, here i go! My name's Andrea. I'm 24 and decided after a long time that i'm going to write my first book. I stumbled across this site a few months ago but lurked for a while and picked up lots of good information about the world of writing.

So far i have only done the basics of getting started: i have three ideas i'm working on - all from different genres. My main focus right now is a fantasy/sci-fi teen novel (i wont bore you with the details right now). The other two are more for older readers; one being a period novel and the other a sort of rom-com that i'm not taking too seriously but having loads of fun writing.

This post is longer than i was expecting it to be so sorry about that...

One last thing i should probably mention are my favorite books/authors. My influences are Enid Blyton, R.L Stine and Stephen King from my childhood reading. Today i am a massive Jane Austen fan but i enjoy modern writers too like Micheal Crichton and Dan Brown. My "comfort reads" are sense and sensibility, Jayne Eyre and Jurassic park.

I haven't told anyone i know that i'm attempting to write a publishable novel so i thought it would be a good idea to register here - its good to know there are other people out there pursuing their writing dream!

so looking forward to getting to know you :p

Welcome to the forum, Andrea. Did you know that 'Sense and Sensibility' is actually playing on BBC1 right now (on Sunday nights)?

Hi Nickie! sure do - i'm loving it. I was surprised because i didn't think the Alan Rickman/Emma Thomson one could be outdone. Are you enjoying it?
