Hey guys. I've been hovering around the site for a couple of days now to get a feel for the community and it seems like a place worth being. I've already picked up invaluable tips and theories about the processes of writing. I have a feeling that frequenting this forum is going to prove an indespensable tool in my own progression. I am a student of history at the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom. Ancient and medieval histories to be specific. Generally people think this means that my writing will take a fantastical path and that swords and sorcery is my thing. (Though I am partial to a Lord of the Rings marathon every now and then) However, currently I'm focussing on some science fiction writing and enjoying it quite a bit. I shall look forward to possibly becoming more involved in the community. Thanks for all the help so far and i'm sure there will be more to come. Jacob.
