I'm married and have two lovely daughters and never regret them being part of my life. I have been writing seriously after my girls started primary school. I undertook a 1 term writing course at a tafe college and since I graduated I have been undertaking courses with Rob and Robyn Opie Parnell. If you like my style it's because I owe it to them. He suggested that I join FanStory, although I noticed it on the web some time back when I was searching for something like this when my writing group collapsed due to a fall in member numbers. I'm glad I finally joined and although at first I felt a little uneasy about having my work reviewed I'm now more confident.

Ortense001: I wasn't going to sign on today because I felt a little melencholic. I am in the process of writing a novel but I am as scared as hell of having it reviewed. I am procrastinating big time on it because of my fear. I don't know why I'm feeling like this.

    DIS-illusioned: Breathe easy and write it all out first--for your own pleasure. Then worry about getting it reviewed later. Good luck.

    Ortense001: Thank you. I started on it again. I cut out some characters because I feel I'm getting myself completely bogged down and overwhelmed with it. I'll do more tomorrow. Your advice makes a lot of sense.

    Lady & Louis: And remember, reviews are just people's opinions. Don't take the star system seriously - it means nothing outside FS, good or bad. You can always post for comments only, that way you're not caught up in the whole ratings/ranks nonsense.

    But like Dis said - write for your own pleasure, first and foremost!
