I've only just seen this comment. You're a gentleman, sir.I would have thought your comment about 'discussing the craft' would have drawn comment from TheMightyAz, he has started some excellent threads on writing craft you might think worth checking out. Welcome to the forum, hope to see you around.
PS. I too took advantage of lockdown to write up an idea I have been fooling around with for years, but never treated seriously before.
Welcome! Glad to have you here.Hey everybody, I'm Nate.
I've been writing on and off for a decade mainly as a hobby, almost exclusively just worldbuilding, but at the start of the pandemic I realized I have a story in me that I want to get out. I've been working on that project for a year now and have had my bouts of confidence and procrastination, feeling like I have no idea what I'm doing, but it doesn't make me want to write any less so I try to keep at it.
I've never been involved in any writing communities or challenges, but recently I've felt like it would be good to contribute to and benefit from discussing the craft, so here I am. I'll try to be more than just a lurker!
