Hello, I am new to these forums and somewhat new to writing. I feel like I am a very creative person and have been looking for lots of ways to express my creativity. I have always loved making up stories and for a long time wanted to design video games so people could live those stories. Hovever I don't feel that it is how I want to share my idea's. Well I have always enjoyed reading and have been reading more than usual lately and started writing some short stories and found it very satisfying. I was hoping to learn some literary techniques and find some practices I could do so I can grow as a writer. So I am asking that if anyone has any advice in that area please let me know so I can set goals and grow. Also are there any good english/writing books anyone recommends I read? Thanks for reading and I look forward to your comments.
