Thanks for joining! What brings you to our group?

The recommendation of a friend, and the desire to write in a way that all readers can enjoy the story I am telling.

What would you like to accomplish in your writing each month?

I am terrible with naming characters, and I desire realistic impulses and desires of the personalities of my characters; I cannot adequately achieve this on my own, and I wish to ensure that my characters are realistic, therefore I hope to perfect them though exposure to differing opinions. I am obsesses with realism, and desire that above all else in my writing; my hope is that this group will help me produce realistic characters who response realistically to dangerous or unexpected situations.

What is, or are the things that hold you back from your writing goals? Would consider taking courses to improve your writing skills, or increase your chances of being published?

Self doubt. I cannot overcome my own inhibitions without the assistance of others. This has prevented me from pursuing many goals, including writing.

What do you write, when you write? Fiction, non-fiction? Genre? Where in a book store would you books land?

Fiction; specifically science fiction, though my current work in progress is fantasy/science fiction.

Are you published? Have you published? Do you want to publish? Have you considered Self-Publishing?

No. I wish. I hope so. My greatest hope is to see a series I conceived of 16 years ago published and successful. I haven't even started writing it, but I hope to if I can produce something else that is successful.

Introduction

I'm a recent member, joining at the behest of a friend, working on several fictional series, looking for help with a number of literary issues that are slowing my progress as a writer.
