Hello, I am a 23 year old male living in Wellington, New Zealand. I graduated from university last year and I'm currently working in a call centre. I honestly believe that the last time I committed myself to creative writing in any serious manner that my age would not have even reached double digits. I've recently decided that amongst my other interests it would be good for me to get back into the process of creative writing, as much to prevent myself from losing any further sense of direction than I already have as for any other reason. Currently I'm going through the process of constructing a prologue for a book that I have in mind. I'm pretty light on details at the moment but I'm hoping to produce something of a science-fiction novel with a very non-traditional feel to it. At the moment the dialogue that I have for the prologue is very dry and painful to read so it is definitely something that will have to be rewritten, perhaps multiple times. Still, nothing worthwhile generally comes without blood, sweat and tears. We'll just have to see if I get beyond this problem of dry dialogue. I look forward to learning from this forum. Regards, William.
