Hello, I'm a 19 year old languages student getting back to writing after a long (3 year) break. I love mystery novels, crime dramas and any slightly misunderstood tragic genius character! Which you'll probably see if you read my attempts at writing! I'm currently reading the Girl with the Dragon tattoo and am completely obsessed with Lisbeth's character.
I tend to overwrite and really struggle with pacing and dialogue, so I'd love some help with that. I'm hoping to get lots of constructive criticism, become part of a writing community, and improve.
Thank you in advance for welcoming me here!  :)

Hi there! It sounds like you and I could get along, I'm also a big fan of crime fiction (nonfiction too) and tragic/misunderstood characters. I recently listened to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on Audible... she was a great character, though I admit I had some qualms with the book as a whole. I'm curious to know what you think once you've read the whole thing.
