Sorry, I'm really bad at the introduction threads but I'll give it a bash. I'm Natalie but you can call me Nat, Night or Nightshade (please not Natster, Nats, Natty or Natty-Natty-Noo-Noo... Don't ask...). I've been writing for as long as I can remember and finished a novel at 16 years old. It was terrible and I can't re-read it without cringing but I like to think I've improved a little since then. I dabble in many creative mediums so my muse can be a rather scatterbrained beast and doesn't often settle on a single project long enough for me to finish it quickly, so novels are usually left half finished or take a few months to plan. I can sometimes tempt my muse out with cheese crumbs and cage him long enough to do some serious writing work, and I hope joining a writing forum might also appease him. I work in a call centre which is demoralising, soul destroying work so I hope to find a better job at some stage soon. I'll be twenty-five this September and not looking forward to adding another candle to the cake, nor the calories which come with said cake which get harder to shift every year. It's nice to meet you all and I hope we can get along well!
