Hi everyone, my name's Josh. I'm a university student at Bournemouth Uni, currently in my third year. I'm doing a creative dissertation at the moment, which entails me putting together the first 5,000 words of a much longer novel. I've been lurking on here for a bit, picking up tips and ideas about plotting and character development and I decided to get involved. I hope to show you some of my work at some point, I'm interested to know what you think. Once my dissertation's been officially marked I'll be able to upload it and I'd really love feedback from people in love with books. I'm hoping to take it further than just 5,000 words and perhaps find a literary agent to help me publish it (that's the dream anyway) I look forward to getting to know you all, it's been a while since I've been a member of a forum!
