noctuary: (The End)
[personal profile] noctuary
I actually joined Dreamwidth to have a place to keep a writing record. That is to say, a place to procrastinate a little and to nag myself to write. I'm actually very new here, so please do bear with me. I am very glad to find this group, (and also quite glad that it's a new one... because I'd feel a bit shy coming into a long-established group, I think). This is exactly what I am looking for. So, thank you for making it.

I scribble the odd short story (some of which might appear on my dw) and the odd poem, and I'm working on finishing a novel. Most of the first draft has been finished, and I'm going through and editing right now, although the entire end of it needs to be rewritten and another 20k or so words tacked onto the end. So there's a lot of work yet to do. I hadn't anticipated editing would be quite so difficult. On paper, it's just reading and correcting as you go. For some reason it takes a lot of mental effort. Explaining that it's more difficult than it seems does not go down well with family.
More me under cut. )

So, there it is! I am pleased to be here and shall be pleased to get to know you all. Do stop by my journal for more info on me.
