Hi everyone. This whole writing thing is a fairly new venture for me. I have been focused on art (the painting and drawing kind) for years and just recently have I decided to try my hand at the art of writing. I have about 11,000 words of my first draft of my first attempt at novel. I decided to join writing forums to read others work and see how below par my writing is, while hopefully picking up some great tips and advice to strengthen my writing skills. I have read a lot of really interesting and imaginative excerpts that people have posted and there seem to be a lot of very talented writers on here. Heres to finishing those novels we have all started and helping eachother along the way!
