Hi! I'm new and hope to meet people with a passion for writing who can possibly share their views and opinions in exchange for mine. I love meeting people in life with interests that are different to mine, as it is part of the fun and uniqueness of life, so hopefully I will over time get to know you all. I am 32 and live in the north of England. I have been writing a novel since I was about 19 and have given up during various times and it has taken on many drafts. I now find myself at the crossroads of life and feel I am a bit more educated in the craft, more patient and have more of the dreaded 'life experience', ha ha. My other main passion in life is lifting weights, fitness and diet. I find this much easier that novel writing, something I can do and just switch off. I enjoy spending time with family and friends . As a hobby I keep terratulas and praying mantis. My favourite novels are Steven King's Mysery and The Silence Of The Lambs. Hope to hear from you all soon.
