Hey all I guess this is what I am supposed to do as a nube here. I love to write poetry & fiction but have been struggling lately. I have many "in progress" stories but none of them finished. I have only ever completed one work which was a spur of the moment short story, which also has not been published. I have thousands of great ideas and stories (sometime too many which can get me quite distracted). Basically, I am 25 and have been writing fiction and poems since I was a wee child in school but I have nothing to show for it . My goal is to write and publish a book before I hit the dreaded 3 0 and that is little over 4 years from now. And I hope that this forum will help to motivate me. That is my main reason for joining this forum. About Me: I love to write fantasy novels, nothing like a little magic and some flashing swords! & I love to write poems. Though I have not spent much time writing for the past 2 years (really busy life). But now that things should be slowing down for me I really want to focus on getting a story finished and published. I guess that covers most of me. so all that's left is a BIG Hello everyone! and as we say in New Zealand, Cheers mate!
