I got side tracked.
Hey there Culties.
So I probably should have done this a few weeks ago but I got to reading some threads and was completely side tracked. I just kinda jumped in head first and didn't look back till now. So...
I'm a 27 year old Canadian who's self-diagnosed as 'total junky of the written word'. I always make sure to have a book handy for a quick fix. I've been reading Palahnuik for a few years now... What do I think of his work? Allow me to quote myself from the 'My First' thread - "Survivor was my first and I've been addicted to Chucks stuff ever since that day. I was absolutely enthralled. It will always be my favorite. The other books are kinda hard to put in order of preference, they all twist my brain in ways that make shiver. The stories and characters are all so fascinating. My Favorite thing about Chucks stories is that I find he writes his characters as emotional beings more so than physical characters. I love the intensity of truly feeling the characters rather than visualizing them. I love it!"
Writing is also a big deal to me. Wanting to write seriously is actually the reason I'm here in the first place. My fiance (the wonderful man who introduced me to CP) told me that this site has a really good writers workshop. (so he's heard) I have absolutely no technical training in the art of writing but I want to learn. I want to add skill to my instinct. Would any of you be so kind as to tell me a little about the workshop?....
Or is the first rule of The Workshop
Not to talk about the Workshop?
