    Hi from France!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by SweetBakker, Aug 1, 2017.

    I'm actually Dutch, but I live in France. Been writing all my life, but as I'm now trying to write my first actual novel, I've found that I would really like some writer friends. Not really ready to share anything yet (first drafts and all), but I would love to read your work and I'll give my pig-headed opinion if you ask for it.
    My current WIP is a gothic novel set in an alternative Victorian Nottingham, where people with magic hold the power. After her aunt is murdered, a young woman sets out to find a cursed Jet Jewel. Doesn't sound very original, I know, but wait till you read it ;)
    I'm nice, talk to me!

    ... and I'm an American working on a story that's set in the winter of 1792, Paris, as the Revolution rages on... a 12 year-old girl has fate thrust on her in the form of a locket, that may, or may not contain the last mortal remains of Joan of Arc, leastwise some ashes of uncertain origin. So you see, we can still use jewelry in a fantasy story!

    And welcome to the forum!

    Welcome to the forum. I'm not very non-nice as well, so pleased to meet you. Enjoy your time here.

    Hi @SweetBakker

    You're right, you do sound nice! So, I'm a new member here too and I'm also writing my first draft. It's about a reluctant young man who stumbles across a secret letter which changes his life.
    I'd be delighted to talk to you further.

    Take care

    That is cool.
    I am working on a sequel to my first novel.
    Also working on shorts in between :)
    Good luck with your first novel, and have fun.
