Welcome to MWF, MissBlackEyeliner! Take a moment and introduce yourself. What do you write? Are you published? Who is your favorite author?

Enjoy your stay!

Well, I'm not published, but that is the dream <3 I have trouble narrowing down what I "write", because everything fascinates me. I'm just as involved in mystery writing as I am a steamy romance or cult fiction. I'd probably have to say that my favorite author is Chuck Palahniuk, after I read his book 'Invisible Monsters' it changed the way I saw fiction, and gave me what felt like permission to write the way I wanted to, not the way people told me I should.

I guess I'm here because It's nice to know that there are other people out there who share my love of reading and writing and need to evolve through writing their fiction as badly as I do. I would like to enter a few short story competitions and see how I could do, but I'm having trouble finding any on the internet that are for this year, so if anyone knows of any that would be fantastic. If not, that's fine, I'm just glad to be here and have people to share with :)

Don't know of any competitions but that shouldn't stop you from writing a short story. Give yourself your own deadline or find a writer who will mirror your efforts and have a competition between yourselves. Take 5k and each write whatever story you wish to write in whatever time frame you choose and then exchnge them for critiques.

I have found a lot of writers on Twitter. Don't trust facebook enough personally to use it.

Just a thought.
