Hello Everyone.
« on: October 06, 2018, 10:19:47 AM »
I was thinking of doing a Writers Bureau Course as my efforts at finishing my novel - something that's been in progress for more years than I care to admit - have hit the rocks. I could do with some human contact as the topic of my book is now dismissed in my family so I don't mention it any more. I'm into the last quarter of my life and would hate not to finish my book. Its possibly not as good as I once thought it was. I live in the UK. Any others here from UK. Looking forward to chatting to inspiring people. All the best, Will.

Welcome to MWC  Will.

 Sometimes one judges their writing negatively, for the mere reason that they wrote the piece.
I'm guilty of doing just that, with a book I've been working on for a decade.
I've  written ,completed it, 3 times already . lol

Good luck with your writing.      jt

Hi Jen. Thanks for your message. I think my story has been in the making for ten years. I am determined to finish it. I'll have to discipline myself to do it. In fact, just to finish the first draft will be an achievement. I've read that one shouldn't edit too much to start with.

Good luck with your book. What's it about? Best wishes.

You can call me Jan.
It's a nonfiction book. That's why it's taking so long.
The facts have to be complete.
If it's meant to be written- it'll happen.
See you around the boards.

Best wishes to you                jt

Hi Will, and welcome to MWC. I hope you find a writing home here. Completing a manuscript can seem like a mammoth and lonely task. Here you will find like-minded people who get that. Have a browse around and settle in. Let me know if you have any questions.
Mark

Thanks Mark. I shall keep in touch and I'm sure it will help me and I might even be able to help others. Its cold this morning, about to start a 15 hour shift at home for adults with mild learning disabilities. Best wishes to all.

Which bit Mark? Hoover? I do say damn quite a lot, or Dickens? Many people tell me I'm 'round the Twist' ::)
