PostSubject: Hey all, good to be here   Mon May 11, 2009 2:38 pm

Hey everyone,

I've been reading the forums for a while now so thought I should say hi! I'm Mark, I've been working on a novel for a few months now, finally reaching THE END (my favourite words to type!) last month. The story is a psycho-thriller about a cosmetic surgeon who wants to create the perfect body. I could go into it more but that pretty much says what you need to know. It deals with issues of beauty, love, death, transcience of life, celebrity, subjectivity. If you know Keats' Grecian Urn then the ideas of forever being beautiful but never being real are fairly important.

I also write a blog about food and beer and I've just posted a little something about my experience of writing the first draft of my story. Check it out if you have the chance, I love to hear how other writers experience the actual writing process. http://pencilandspoon.blogspot.com/2009/05/on-writing-novel.html

Anyway, just wanted to say a quick hello. I know how helpful forums like these are as well as writing groups. I hope to be around a lot more! Smile

Welcome Mark! It's great that you have joined us here. Your story intrigues me. It sounds kind of creepy--which is a good thing I guess since your genre is psycho-thriller.
