Hi everybods. I've been stalking these forums since the 14th century, so I thought it was about time I joined. I spend most of my time thinking my writing's rubbish and then feeling guilty about thinking about how rubbish my writing is rather than just getting on with the actual writing. I am published (as a journalist) and you can find more about me by following the link to my website on my profile. Let's get stuck in. Hit me with your beginner's blurb, Cogito!
