Hi guys! here is a link to a really cool website for amateur writers :)
Do you guys have any ideas, comments or simply want to chat? If so, please

I love Jane Austen-do you? I find her novels very inspiring and exciting. I have visited her house in Chawton, Hampshire, and have read most of her books, which include: Persuasion, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, Emma and Sense and Sensibility. Sadly Jane died at the age of 41, before completing her last novel, Sanditon.
As an amateur novelist, I would recommend a book called "DragonsDale'', by Salamander Drake. It is about a dragon stud-or stables- where riders bond and learn different manoeuvres on their mounts. It is a tale of friendship and trust, and how best friends work together to achieve the impossible.
I recently began a story called Mammals and Molluscs, a fiction-novel for 10-13-year-olds about a young girl named Freya, whose imagination is dominated by ideas of portals and gateways to other worlds, and all imaginable creatures. On the way home from school one day, young Freya sees an oddly coloured snail making a trail upon the bus' window. The trail reads: Follow me.
Overwhelmed with excitement, Freya obeys the molluscs command, and, as it leaps off the rained-speckled glass, she prepares to climb out of the window after it. A man shouts for her "not to do it", but she ignores him, and leaps into the portal. You may ask "why has nobody else ever got there before?''. The answer to that is because, in order for this special sort of snail to come out, it must be wet, and in order for the portal to be opened, one must be high up.
Once Freya arrives in what is called Sugar Plum, she is discovered by an elderly female snail, who soon asks information about her identity and then begins to spread the word to her friends.
The story is about adventure, trust and friendship, portrayed in some of the most peculiar and yet fascinating ways imaginable.
Hiya everybody! I have begun to read a series of books by Caroline Lawrence called "The Roman Mysteries''. They are very inspiring, exciting, engaging and action-full. Flavia Gemina, the daughter of a sea-captain, seems prone to discovering new mysteries, which she solves with her faithful friends: Lupus, Jonathan, Nubia and Scuto. Join them as they uncover secrets and expose the previously unknown!
