Total new guy to writing
« on: January 29, 2012, 05:00:57 PM »
I'm a 21 year old Belgian student. For these past few months I had this sudden surge of inspiration. And that time I developped an entire world and storyline. I felt quite proud with myself and didn't want it to go to nothing so I decided to write about this world. Which is why I am here. I'm trying to get better each day, reading books on writing and just generally reading books and scanning the internet for valuable sites like this.

I am Belgian which means English is not my first language, yet the story felt more natural in English so I kept it that way.

Hi Sander,

We're all from different places in the world. I come from Russia, but to be honest - I feel a lot more confident talking in english  ;D
