HI.

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Hey all,

I've been writing on and off for a few years. I recently published a personal memoir and it has boosted the courage to write a lot more and practice better writing. I'm inspired by Chuck's novels, although I have not read them all I probably have them all, my brother's also a huge fan. I'm 22 years old, living in a small town in West Virginia. Yay!

I just started writing about a serial killer and it really helped to get over my nerves in writing about crime. I found that it helps for me to create morality/humanity even though the criminals are supposed to be crazy. I want to paint them in a lense so that you can see both sides to the story, so for me it's better as the author tells it, objective/omniscently.

I look forward to meeting members on here and exchanging tips on writing, life, etc. I joined the workshop and so far I found it extremely beneficial. I didn't know there were so many edgy and creative people! Sometimes when you branch out it's hard to create a style, some people can be anal about everything.

I try to be honest and not judgmental. I think some people on forums where there's writing will debase each-other for an ego flare, well I'm not that way! I think writing is a form of self expression, and we can all express it in our own style without the need to be bias instead of just critical. I think some people do get jealous of each other.

More? I'm still a student studying for film and communications, and not sure where the next year will take me.

Thanks!

Gabrielle
