Hi. I'm new to these forums. At the suggestion of a recently published friend he said these really helped him put together a more complete story. Looking to use the forums to help reinvigorate that spark in my own novel and hopefully bring it completion, and hopefully published. I have written several short stories and had 1 published. I also wrote for 2 newspapers for a while. (Print journalism is such a booming industry that I had to get out to pay the bills) Little about me: Casual writer - full time job. Graduated 2007 - with journalism degree and business communications. Favorite authors include: John Connolly, George RR Martin, Terry Goodkind.
