I am currently 50,000 words into a story which just keeps distracting me at work and on weekends. As a beginner trying to write my first novel would like to meet other people who have the same interest in writing fiction.
I have always been a big fan of Sci-fi especially Arthur C Clarke, Ray Bradbury Isaac Asimov etc. I also loved The Road by McCarthy. Being an engineer I love the technology aspect especially how new and interesting ideas are created and presented by the writer. I love how words can be joined and made to flow to express complex ideas.
I've been writing bits and pieces since I left school but nothing serious until a year ago when I had this idea for a story which keeps growing and unfolding in my mind. I'd like to see how other aspiring authors go about their writing. I'm new to this but might be able to help others in the group where I can.
Public venue is preferable
I shifted from Kalgoorlie to Perth to study electronic engineering at Curtin Uni in 1979. As an engineer the logical side of my brain has dominated for all these years but now the creative side wants its turn.
Everything I was looking and hoping for. The members are both creative and supportive
