hey i'm new here so i guess i should tell you a little about myself. My name is Nicky but of course my username is CommieKing, and that's really a joke as well as an inside reference between me and one of my friends, and i am 19 and from glasgow. Creative writing is something i've always enjoyed, it was the one thing i would look forward to in english at school, even at primary i loved it when we done "stories". I took up writing lyrics about 6-7 years ago but didn't start any real creative writing in my spare time until about 4 years ago when i started my first attempt at a novel. I managed to finish that within 7 months (going on and off it quite a bit), but as soon as i finished it and looked back at it i hated it, i didn't, and still don't believe it was very good, since then i have yet to truly finish anything. I find myself seemingly constantly stopping and starting, begining on one idea but then coming up with another and casting aside the previous one altogether, i think by joining a site like this i can properly motivate myself to continue through with an idea, and certainly there are a couple that i am either working on currently or are planning to get started on soon. It will also be a good opportunity for me to improve my writing, as well as seeing the work of others and looking at their styles, contrasting and comparing, maybe picking up some things here and there. It would also be cool if the opportunity arose to find a writing partner, it's something i have always thought would be interesting, to write something with someone else, to collaborate and exchange ideas, i have in the past attempted to get a sketch show project off the ground with one of my friends, but a lack of resources stopped us and i was the only one doing any writing and contributing any sound ideas, but admittedly my friend is not a writer, it's not something he enjoys, and he preffered to just try and improvise it and work without a script. Anyway i hope enjoy my stay here, and i hope you enjoy having me here.
