Hi guys just a bit about myself. I'm 23 from Australia and have been writing as a hobby since I was six years old. Recently I decided I was going to have a decent crack at it and write something for others instead of myself and only since then have I been aware of technique and the craft of story telling. I've been on this site as a member for a couple of months now and while my writing has greatly improved (thanks guys) I'm still an amateur. The feedback I have gained from this site and people in my life is I have solid ideas and a good amount of life experience to draw from but I am still lacking in the matter of technique and grammar. Im particularly interested in horror, fantasy and sci/fi genre. My favorite books are the Empire series by Raymond. E. Feist and Janny Wurts. Pillars of the Earth by ken follett and the Bitterbynde Trilogy by Cecilia Dart-Thornton. I also enjoy books written by the bronte sisters and Sara Douglass. So! I'm after a mentor if anyone is interested? (preferably someone who has some success themselves and enjoys brain-storming) As pay back I can read your work for you and give you an open and honest opinion. This includes keeping a diary of my thoughts and feelings during the reading process. If anyone is interested please inbox me and ill post you a little of my work so you can assess if you would like to invest your time in me. Thanks a bunch. Lizzie.
