Hello, I'm 31 and recently moved to Scotland, which has certainly inspired my writing! Work is long and busy, so I tend to be a bit of a dreamer outside it. I enjoy exploring the Scottish countryside, climbing mountains, gaming, lots of different genres of music, reading, and of course, writing. I've been working on a story for the last six months now (the inspiration came on Christmas Day, but is not related!), and while I have spent the majority of this time world building and drafting out a skeleton of the my story, I have only recently started to write the chapters this tale in earnest. I thought I'd join so that I might be able to discuss specific writing choices with your fine selves. I've written short stories before (really short stories), and have spent a lot of time writing a video games fanzine both for university and leisure. I even added three acts to The Tempest once. However, I've not done much in the way of writing for the past seven or eight years thanks to work commitments, so I expect to need a little oiling. I did begin something in the middle of last year, but quickly realised that I needed more planning to make that work. With my current tale, I feel like I can disappear into the world I've invented, so either that speaks volumes about my state of mind, or I've perhaps created something good. Of course, I'm sure you'll be able to tell me whether or not that is the case I've had a read of: http://www.writingforums.org/threads/new-member-quick-start-guide.132102/ So I'm aware I need to do a bit before I can post any work. But, I've not posted work before so I'm all cagey and shy when it comes to showing my work anyway, haha!
