Hi there all you wonderful, creative people. I wanted to join an active writing community to learn more about the craft, to get some critique on my own work as well as critique others. I know honest, constructive critiques are like gold and I'd like to finally get some. I've written for years but only have gotten critiques a handful of times. They are pretty cool. I'm having a LOT of trouble getting started on writing a novel, I have a couple ideas for a while now but can't seem to get started. The whole process of writing a coherent story, the structure and everything, is really hard for me. I just write more stream of consciousness and use whatever comes out. But i need more direction... Anyways, I hope to learn a lot from you folk! See ya around!
