Well hello, fellow writers
« on: March 22, 2020, 06:21:19 PM »
Hi fellow writers and authors!
I'll go by NerdiViola on this platform, and I'm really looking forward to having some good discussions about writing and editing and ideas in general. I live in the Inland Northwest (United States) and am a college graduate (my degree is in biochemistry...not anything literary). I currently work in health care. I've been doing creative writing pretty much for as long as I could use a pencil, and later a keyboard. I've never taken a class in creative writing but lately I've spent a lot of time teaching myself about the craft, largely from podcasts and books written by editors and published authors. I recently finished writing my first novel (after several failed attempts at different novels in the past) and am also working on a short story or two to enter into some contests. Writing is mostly a hobby, but I would like to get something published some day.
My writing tends toward the following genres/topics:
- contemporary fiction
- crime fiction
- science fiction
- LGBT
- mental health awareness
- tragedy? sort of?

Ask me any questions you'd like!
