    Hi Everyone!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Lozboz, Nov 20, 2015.

    Hello!

    I'm new to the forums so I guess it's only right to introduce myself. I have been writing since I was very young, silly short stories etc.

    I've just finished my first manuscript of a novel. It started as my dissertation while at university in 2011 - I studied English and Creative Writing. It's being sent to agents (and being rejected) at the moment.

    I also have a blog discussing my two passions: video games and writing.
    Interesting fact: I love bellydancing too...

    Can't wait to meet all you fellow writers out there. It's tough working on your own a lot.

    I'm new too, btw. You've been to uni and written a novel? Awesome... and I'm jelly. My major will probably be physics. :(
    Anyway, welcome to the forum. :D What's your favorite genre? Mine is Realistic fiction and I'm all over gaming too, btw.

    Hi Sevenski. :)

    Thank you for the welcome. Writing that novel took me 5 years, and I still don't think it's perfect.

    I like a lot of genres, but I think at the moment I have a thing for Dystopian, Sci-fi -like the Wool series.

    Woo! Video games. My ideal job would be writing about games in exchange for money.

    That's interesting. I'm downloading a video-game for my lame computer to run at the moment. Nothing worth mentioning.
    This is a good place for other eyes to edit and and improve your work with suggestions and corrections, that's all.

    Pretty impressive to have written a novel while at Uni, I must say. I'm hopefully going to be attempting that in the coming year (which is my last at uni). Any advice for writing while also having uni work to do?

    Thanks! It was only the first draft. I used to get up early - 7am used to be early for a student, not sure what it's like now - and write for a few hours. Also, I got my assignments finished and in early, then I didn't have to worry about them and had a few days at least to focus on my own stuff.

    I just voted. :bigsmile:
