As I'm sure many of know, writing can be a rather lonely venture. You have an idea, you begin to write, you get excited and perhaps you tell a friend about this new book you're writing. Of course, they want to read some of it. So you send them the first few chapters and four weeks later you discover that they haven't read a single word. That can be depressing when all you want is some feedback... hence my point in finding this place. I've been writing for years and have had numerous articles published in music magazines, some in America, others in Great Britain. I am currently working on two novels and will be finished w/ one quite soon. So... I decided to find like-minded people and hopefully learn some things and maybe pass on some things. As far as me personally, my two favorite writers are Peter Straub and Richard Bach. I've also been a musician since I was 12 and studied Classical Guitar. The gift of music has allowed me the opportunity to see the United States from San Francisco to New York City. Lake Tahoe is my favorite place. So... that's my introduction... I look forward to meeting everyone and checking this site out. It's nice that writers have a place like this to go to.
