Hello. I'm no here. I've always wanted to get thorough critiques on my writing. I'm not sure how good I will be at critiquing others work.

My favorite authors are Dan Brown, Daniel O'Malley and J.K. Rowling!

j.k rowling is also my favorite author. I mean who's isn't she.
Always trying to make myself seem strong... So I locked myself in a suit of armor with nothing but darkness in sight.

Sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I have to.

Sorry. *ahem*

Welcome to the forum! No need to worry - we all start out pretty bah-sic when we arrive, but, given time, effort & a willingness to learn, you'll soon be critiquing like a boss. And y'know... writing like one too. I find that one usually feeds into the other.

Sweet! I love J.K too - I grew up reading those books! She was, in many ways, my first introduction to the wonderful, wacky world of writing. I haven't actually heard of Daniel O'Malley, but it sounds like he's in good company! My hubby *loves* Dan Brown! (I went off him a little after Inferno. -shrugs- When you know the source material forwards, backwards and inside out, it hurts a little to see it used poorly.)

I hope you really enjoy your time here! Let us know if we be of any help to you!

JK Rowling is one of my faves too!

I'm new too, but I'm quite excited to start critiquing and publishing my own work. Anyway, I really like JK Rowling, along with CS Lewis.

We both have J.K.Rowling in common as best author.
