    Let's try writing

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by BadCrow, Feb 26, 2016.

    Hello there,
    I recently stumbled across this forum in my search for some place to find kindred spirits when it comes to writing. I am 22 years old and from austria, so forgive any mistakes i may make in my posts (do correct me though if you don't mind)
    Two months ago i started writing down some of the stories which have been plaguing my mind and ever since then I have been trying to write my first draft for a book.

    Welcome Badcrow! Glad to meet you, what kind of stories plague your mind? Sounds slightly zombieish.

    Well I'm currently working on a piece about the rise of mankind. The world I'm creating is a very young one so there wont be a lot of old artifacts and stuff like that, instead i want to cover a long period of time in my book (and possibly futre books) so that every artifact is something the reader already knows from a previous chapter of the book.
    I recently finished the second draft of a shortstory which takes place two hundred years before my book starts.

    and the stories plague my mind in the sense that i can realy get them out of my head.. so i thought writting them down might help with that.

    That's a fun idea, I haven't read any books about that time frame, I think it would be a crazy one for character development.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, I write in english since it proved to be a lot easier that way... (german grammar is the horror!)
