Hello everyone! I just found this forum yesterday, and have been lurking around. I'm from Norway, and oddly enough there is really just one Norwegian forum for writers and it is pretty much dead. Therefore I guess I must go international! I've been writing for twelve years now I guess, and I've written mostly lyrics, poems and short stories. Now I have just started my first full length novel called Halfhearted. Most of my writing is in that funny Norwegian language, so I guess I will use the forum for writing-techniques and feedback on the content of my writings. My novel is about a guy who does everything halfhearted, sports, guitar, writing, school and so on. He thinks if he had put is heart into it he would have been able to whatever he wants, but something is holding him back. He goes into figuring out where this attitude comes from. The interesting part (spoiler alert!) is that he is actually halfhearted, he was born with half a heart, and for the first part of the novel you believe the Halfhearted title is about his take on life, but then you understand it is actually quite literal. I don't know if I will be able to pull it off, but I hope so. And yes, the book is about myself. I was born with half a heart.
