My real name is Gerwin G. Guanzon, 19 years old, College student (accountancy) Actually, this is my 1st time being in a forum... and the truth is, this is my 3RD username here... my last two were instantly been banned (i have no idea what a spam thread is). Sorry about that. I really hope that you guys can help me, such as giving me some advice to my writings, either good or bad comment, i will surely appreciate it. And actually, I'm quite shy in showing my written unfinished novels and short stories to my college friends, and eventually i almost thought of quitting until the girl that i liked (since highschool) mercilessly took my notebook and lokced herself in my room (she's probably already reading it), and there I was surpirsed. No one has ever read my written novel from that notebook and the worse part is, she's the girl that i like...so of course i got nervous and felt embarassed, But what she said is something that lead me to continue this hobby into a serious partial career. (since my college degree isn't writing) several minutes later, she finally came out. "What a nice plot... I bet you like Dan Brown Novels, and mangas too..." she said (she didn't said it in english, but i know it's something like that) "Huh?" I said, feeling uneasy " Let me read your next chapter when it's finished, okay?" What she said was completely a fact, I'm like a kid who reads mangas in the internet. And ever since i borrowed a book authored by Dan Brown, I began to read all of his written novels. Well, that's all i could say to myself and about why I'm writing novels (two novels under construction) despite still being a college student. _PS: Pls, if there is something wrong with my post, i hope the moderator or the owner could give me a warning, I'm just a noob in the internet.
