Hello everyone! Just a brief introduction so that I can get myself acquainted with some of you and introduce myself. My name is Danny and I am 22 years old, living in London at the moment. I work in finance, it's ok I suppose but it dulls my creativity I think. I loved writing as a teenager and used to write quite a lot. Recently I haven't found the time or motivation, but I am wanting to start writing again as it is one of my few hobbies. I love reading and in particular I love Fantasy. My favourite authors are Brandon Sanderson, Trudi Canavan and Robert Jordan. I am looking to start writing something again, starting with a couple of short stories and progressing onto a novel. Where do you guys get your inspiration from? The hardest part for me is starting - so what exercises do you use and how do you go about planning your stories and getting started? Any help would be greatly appreciated and if you want to know anything more about me then don't hesitate to ask.
