Here at last. Had my head in a keyboard for a couple of years, bashing out this and that, just for the fun of it. Then some fool read some of it and liked it. So, I thought I might just take it a bit more seriously and see what I can learn from you guys. I have always enjoyed making up stories, just in my head, exploring peoples character and wondering how those characters would perform in different situations. I flew by the seat of my pants at first but have recently started to structure my stories. Well a bit anyway. I find it fascinating how authors plan and twist plots and develop characters within them. Me? I live with my wife and two dogs in rural East Anglia, England.
