Hello everyone, I'm Chuck Pamuk from India. My username is a hybrid of two of my favourite writers. My writing credentials only extend to contributing and editing magazines, newsletters and promotional brochures in my uni. I've taken part in a few creative writing contests in my uni and won some prizes. My great attempt at writing an epic was aborted after I broke up with the girl, I was writing the novel with. I find it extremely difficult to write anything from a female point of view or having well developed female characters in the short stories that I occasionally write, although, that has never been the case in my day dreams and fantasy worlds where alluring creatures of the fairer sex are usually developed in far greater detail than everything else. I'm looking forward to enjoy being a part of this forum and hopefully learn a thing or two about writing. You can also call me Orhan Pahlaniuk.
