    Hello

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Kitti, Jan 28, 2015.

    So I joined about a week ago I think and finally found the 'introduce yourself' thread today.
    Or last night. I don't recall.

    I'm writing a novel. Surprise!

    Despite a trail of incomplete attempts over the years, on this occasion I am properly motivated by circumstance to do it properly and finish it.

    It's fairly early days. About three weeks in I believe. I had a couple of intensely productive days at the idea/character development leading to revised synopsis, and another or three. Wrote a few scenes burning their way through my brain and have now settled down to start from the beginning and get through it.

    I joined mainly to ask questions and generally peruse for useful information.
    I'll be trying not to use the forums as a way to procrastinate, something I'm far too skilled at.

    If you finish, you'll have gotten a lot further than many people. Just knowing that you can finish a novel is valuable. Forums are great for procrastination. In some ways, it must have been easier when authors had to sit at a desk with a typewriter and a stack of blank pages, with only a landline to communication with the outside world.
