I'm nervous because I am finally taking writing seriously and am worried that I won't write anything that matters. I am writing my first novel now and I have a few short stories under my belt. So far, my writing seems to be about love and loss viewed through a science fictiony lens. Well, here I am.

Welcome!

I seriously hope to see your name on a published book someday. You would be impossible not to talk about. [Smile]

My Writers of the Future finalist two years back was precisely about love and loss, viewed through a SF lens.

I wish you prosperity - and luck. We need both.

Hi, Dirk! Welcome to the "treehouse"! I myself only recently (maybe a year/year-and-a-half ago) decided to take writing seriously. I share your worries about not writing anything that matters. I'm working on my first novel, too, and I have such high hopes for it that I'm worried it won't be able to live up to them. Know that you are not alone on this writing journey. I look forward to reading some of your work. Happy writing!

Yes, I laugh every time I use Dirk Hairychest as well. I suppose it makes me feel simultaneously brave and ridiculous. For your information, that name is an homage to Guy Smiley, the puppet game show host from Sesame Street.

I'm a bit late but Howdy there.

As you probably know by now this place is full of friendly people and you can learn here.

However do be careful if you see a unicorn as you wonder around the Treehouse. She can be snippy and snobby and snarky

Well, I look forward to that, LD. I have never had anything against alliterative unicorns.

The username caught my eye too... maybe you and Hairyfeet (someone I know from another forum) should start a movement! [Big Grin]
