Hello people. I've come along to try and find out the process's writers go through to write a fiction. In the early part of my school years I would receive much praise for my creative writing but any compliments I received were promptly squashed by my inability to learn spelling, grammar or punctuation. This contributed to the fast decline intrest in anything academic so as some one who never took education as seriously as I now wish I had and left with next to no qualifications to become a solder in the infantry I now feel I have missed out on so much. I've never read a novel my self. Yes, you hear correctly I am yet to have read a novel, and it is something I intend to rectify. I have recently began listening to BBC Radio 4 through the day while I'm at work and have found the stories they run a vessel of which I can escape. Before I began listening to BBC Radio 4 I would spend hours making up stories in my head purely for my own entertainment. I sometimes tell my wife these stories when we go to bed in the evening. She tells me I have a wonderfully way of describing places, people and emotions. Whether or not it is good enough to put in to print only time will tell. So there's me, my embarrassing back ground and reasons for joining this forum. I can only hope I won't meet to much resistance from you other members in my quest to becoming a writer. Thank you for taking the time to, well you know.
