Hey! So I'm new here. I must confess I haven't used a web forum for many many years. So forgive me if I'm not great with how things work now. I decided to join because I've been working on a few projects, and my most recent one is really personal to me. A few friends have looked at it, and they've all said the same thing "it's great!" Well they can be a little subjective. I need some real criticism and I need some help writing more. I've found writing to be such a great outlet. The story I'm working on at the moment is "true". Clearly some things have been changed but it's pretty accurate. It doesn't paint me in the greatest of lights, but it's as honest as I can possibly make it. I really want to finish this piece. I have a habit of jumping to the part I really want to get written too quickly! I feel I'm kind of rambling already. So a bit about me anyway: Well I'm 22. I live in central London and I go to a university there. I'm a first year so. Most people assume I've therefore been travelling. I'd love to have stories from all over the world. Sadly this isn't the case. I was just lazy and didn't really know what I wanted in life (and if I'm honest I still don't). I'm studying something which takes up an unbelievable amount of time and is stupidly draining! I can speak a bit of German. I like various genres of music though the likes of Tool, Biffy Clyro, Jimmy Eat World and Chevelle are among my favourites! Ultimately as you can tell, I'm pretty boring. But here I am anyway =] . I hope to post what I've gotten so far soon. > The.Maverick Edit: In re reading what I wrote it all sounds rather arrogant. So apologies for that. I do look forward to reading other people's work! I figured that would go without saying but it's better left said anyway. I'm always looking for inspiration. I'm guilty of not reading enough books. A friend of mine is an unpublished writer. Her work amazes me every time I read it. It seems that many unpublished works are often better than many well known published ones.
