Hometown: Cape Town

Member since:

July 15, 2013

What are you writing - or why would you like to join us?

I wrote a novel for my creative writing MA at the University of Cape Town but I wasn't happy enough with it to try getting it published afterwards. I've now started another novel. Aspects of the story and the characters have been on my mind for a long time, but I'm struggling to stay motivated and confident about my writing.

What type of writing support are you looking for?

I'd love to make some like-minded writer friends in my new home city! In terms of the writing itself, I struggle with tying my plot together. I tend to be too focused on character and setting, and the overall structure gets a bit wobbly. In terms of the writing process, I guess I need a bit of help staying positive about my work. I'm so self-critical sometimes that I paralyse the process.
