    I'm searching for that buzz, that perfect turn of phrase.

    I'm a UK author who'll be found hunched over a laptop, dreaming of the woods. I used to write about my plastic trolls as a child. Now I write about goblins and other bizarre things.

    Looking forward to connecting with others who understand the lonely, doubt-filled process of writing. But nothing compares to the thrill of writing something truly amazing. It's what we crave ...

    Nice to meet you all!

    Good to meet you, Dawn. And, yeah, I get what you're saying. I write and draw comics, and the process is just as lonely and doubt-filled.

    Hang around. Maybe we can all get to know you a bit better! :)

    So far I've only ever experienced this lonely, doubt-filled process of writing when writing term papers or theses for university. (Only that those are never really amazing. >_>) I honestly respect authors for always keeping going despite writer's blocks and other obstacles. :D

    Anyway, forget what I'm saying, I actually just came here to say hello and welcome to TFF! :p
