I'm a young guy who grew up on a small island in the Caribbean called Trinidad. Now I live in France where I'm studying international relations. As time goes by however, it's becoming more and more clear to me that this probably isn't the path I'm supposed to take in life. I've always got long elaborate storylines running through my mind, some of which I've been developing for years. I withdraw into my own little fantasy worlds whenever I'm not interested by the things taking place around me. I don't have very much experience actually writing but I feel as though I owe it to myself to put pen to paper and see where it could lead me. I'm the type of person who needs to have someone review things as I go along or else I won't feel motivated to get it done. I am however way to shy to show anything i write to my friends or family. So this forum seems to me a great way to get myself motivated to write and have anonymous individuals review my efforts. When I was a teen, I read daily and I always topped my literature and english classes, however I almost zero experience creating stories beyond simple essay writing. So if anyone has got good tips for a total beginner or wants to offer advice in any form, I'd be more than happy to chat with you.
