Seriously, I think this is just what I need. I love writing (short stories mostly but one day I will write a novel...) and in the past I've had to get my friends to read my stuff which I really appreciate but it's hard to know whether they're being honest or just saying what they think I want to hear to boost my confidence> I guess what I'm looking for then is some honest criticism. Also, I have a really boring job (temping, thank God) which basically just involves sitting at a computer waiting for the phone to ring so if you want a pair of eyes to read over your work then please message me. You'd be doing me a favour!! It's great to be here.
