    Another Newbie

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Hugo Trevelian, May 20, 2017.

    Hello all,

    I am Geoff Coates, I write under the name of Hugo Trevelian. Thanks for letting me join the forum, I am a fairly new starter to the writing game. I am looking forward to chatting to other members.

    My main genre is crime, private investigator type. I am also looking to write some comedy, horror and erotica.

    Regards
    'Hugo'

    Welcome, Hugo!

    Are you working on a novel, or on shorter stuff?

    Thanks for the welcome. I think it would be best to start with short stories to gain experience first and then move onto full novels.

    Hugo,

    when asked what had motivated him to write such a long story as Tom Sawyer, Mark Twain responded as follows 'I simply didn't have enough time to write a shorter one!'

    Many people consider short stories to be the pinnacle of writing challenges. I think your very brave starting at that end of the spectrum. I am doing it exactly the other way around.

    I wish you all the best and look forward to reading your work in the future.
