Just popping in to say hi! I'm a novice writer who for some reason thought it would be a good idea to have a go at writing a novel. I've managed to complete the first draft and am now onto the dreaded editing stage. I've lurked on these forums for a while, so thought that it was about time I introduced myself! I'm from the UK and write in my spare time, whilst holding down a full time job. I've not had any formal training / education in any writing related areas, so I'm learning everything from scratch. So er... Hi!
