    Following a childhood dream, I suppose?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Twoods93, Jul 21, 2017.

    Hi! My name is Tom, I'm from England and I'm 23.
    As a kid, and into my early teens, I was fascinated by stories and reading them, even beginning a few little stories here and there but never finishing any of them.
    As I got older, starting going out more with friends and starting to work, I found myself reading less and less, to the point where I stopped all together.
    Recently, I became a student at university and have found myself with more free time, so I've started to rekindle my love of stories, mostly through audiobooks or graphic novels. Through consuming these stories, I've found myself wanting to write again and have wanted a place to come for help, and to maybe help other budding writers too!

    I always wanted to write, but didn't have much to say when I was younger, so I ended up recycling what I was reading, and it didn't come out well.

    Don't be surprised if you find that you've got more stories in you now, and welcome aboard, this is a good place to find help in prying them out and getting them down on the paper/screen.
