Signed on today to this site and decided to expose myself (not in that way).

I am semi-retired and have been - finally - trying to do something with my writing. However, I am isolated, feeling alone - I spent a lot of time in front of the typer (as Bukowski called it). I have made some attempts at getting published, but I have not made the all consuming effort I believe is required.

I am looking for companionship of like-minded individuals - creative people who burn to express themselves, who are not afraid to be passionate and vulnerable.

I am looking for inspiration, advice, experience, knowledge and anything else that will fuel my soul and help me to reach my goals.

Look forward to becoming an active member of this community.

Ciao

Weird sexual/horror stuff. Playing around with it. Not sure exactly what the hell I want to do.

 

How about you?

Nothing! Queries, I guess. Really more of a cut-paste thing. Really need to get back to the non-sequel I started.

Have you completed anything yet?

I guess reviving year old posts is a way to get some activity around here? I just joined recently and geez, this place is dead....

Hey all!

Another newbie here! I live in Welsh Wales. I've dabbled in scriptwriting on and off in the past and I've wanted to turn my hand to fiction. I have tried several times to push myself into getting better writing habits but fall flat when I get critical of what I see as poorly formed concepts. Hoping joining a community of writers will give me a bit more of a drive to actually get on and get lots written!

If any of you would care to connect/ chat/ point and laugh at my beard then let me know!

Cheers

Pete

Hi All,

I have just signed on. I am based in regional Australia and have been writing fiction for about 2 years. I have half a dozen short stories complete and a novel nearly complete but nothing as yet published. I am planning to get serious about submitting the short stories soon to get some runs on the board for the novel. I tend to write slightly weird magic realism, some Gothic, and often satirical stuff. Any tips about where to submit would be appreciated.

 

Cheers,

Chris
