I have been lurking here for a while and decided to actually post. I have a great love of writing but stop short of trying to get published. However, I have been working on a novel for sometime now and am determined to go for it. The planning is taking an age and this forum will be a great help to me as nobody I know in "real life" has any interest in writing at all. Just a bit about me... Living in West Sussex, England right now with my 6 sons so I dont have as much time as I would like to indulge myself in the book.But after a recent life change I am looking forward to pastures new.
