I'm slightly nervous as I've never really joined anything like this before. But I love to write , and couldn't help being lured into finding a spot where eveyone sounds like they're going through, pretty much the same excitement and frustration over their work as I am. I've written for years but haven't really show anyone my personal work. There was a disastrous moment in my childhood where my mom read my 'Harriet the Spy' notebook , she didn't say anything, just gave me a look and since then I seem to be avoiding that look of disappointment from everyone. I know, get over it! Who I am perceived on the outside, isn't quite what's revealed in my stories. I've never really fixed on any genre - I've completed two scripts a sci-fi and a horror. Completed a mammoth rough draft of a bizarre mystery that included slavery , villains who had magic talents , an an amnesiac hero and finished two equally unusual stories. I battle the dreaded YCDB syndrome ( as in You can Do Better ) which can stall my progress. Well just wanted to shout a hello , and let everyone know I'm glad to be here and get some inpiration , hopefully give some , and really knuckle down and expose my work.
