Hello! I'm new to the forums so I guess it's only right to introduce myself. I have been writing since I was very young, silly short stories etc. I've just finished my first manuscript of a novel. It started as my dissertation while at university in 2011 - I studied English and Creative Writing. It's being sent to agents (and being rejected) at the moment. I also have a blog discussing my two passions: video games and writing. Interesting fact: I love bellydancing too... Can't wait to meet all you fellow writers out there. It's tough working on your own a lot.
