Hello all. I thought I'd better come in here and introduce myself. My name is Colum, and I'm from Adelaide Australia. I've been writing for almost 10 years, but semi-readable work for about 3-4 years now. I've written more short stories than I can count, and two novels. I've had a few short stories published and was focusing on re-writing my second novel. Although I've fallen out of writing for the last few years (moving interstate, close illness and death in family, getting married, more responsibilities at work, etc.), but I think I'm at a stage where I can get back into it, and its been constantly niggling at the back of my mind to get stick into it. Plus a close friend has just gotten himself a two book deal with a major publisher, so I'm a little jealous and want to show him up a bit, but I need to juices flowing be freely again. I stumbled across this sight through a google search, and had a go at the weekly short stories section. Feel free to have a look. And I'll get stuck into reviewing others stories (always seemed to help my writing poking holes in others.).
