    Hey guys!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by ShaunChattey, Oct 7, 2013.

    I'm Shaun, 26 from Stevenage in England.

    I enjoy writing, but I wouldn't characterize myself as a good writer or one with a future in the business :p
    It's a hobby!

    I write nearly exclusively Science Fiction due to my life long love of the genre, but I sometimes go outside my comfort zone and try quasi-fantasy or something.

    I'm taking part in the Sci-fi competition this year and my goal is simply to finish a story I enjoyed writing. I don't expect to win due to my less-than-professionally skilled writing, but I'll aim to put as much effort and 'skill' as I can into it!

    I also look forward to reading others work!

    Just had a case of writers block, read a single page of Terry Pratchett(One im currently re reading), and immediately resolved :p
    I tell you, if I ever sell a fiction book in my life, i'm putting a dedication to Pratchett in it.
