Usually I write nothing but emails and the odd scientific report. Very dry.
I'm therefore equipped with no experience, little direction, but a strong desire to create something readable. For someone might read something readable one day?
Finding myself in wonder at the minds and capabilities of authors, the temptation to also have a go kept tugging. So here I am. Seeing if I can capture a part-per-million of similar simply by being bold enough to try?
I'm not a poet. And though I'd love to world-build, the details run amock in my head. For now, I may just see if I can write anything coherent if that's ok?
With simple happiness such a forum exists, Speranza
Yes, please! We utterly welcome bold. Everyone has to start somewhere, right? We have lots of prompts to help get you started, and information on worldbuilding too! Most of all, we'd love to encourage you as you step out in this new writing direction. I'll send you some links in a private message to help acquaint you with the site. I hope you soon feel at home here.
Speranza, Interesting that your handle name is Hope in Italian. Is being bold the same as being brave? we were all once where you are and there are memebers at all different phases in their writing. So I bid you welcome, fear not what you write. No story is all good or all bad.
