Hi guys,

I'm new to this site and just want to introduce myself to you all. My name is Nigel, I'm British and living in South Africa.

I'm a web designer amongst other things but want to become an author and am looking for some useful tips and ideas from you guys.

I do hope to get to know some of you.

See you around

Hey, welcome to YWO (Young Writers Online)! Do you design certain websites or are you skilled in all types?

Thanks for the welcome GeonamicWarrior (great name).

I just build simple websites for small businesses. Nothing fancy.

Hey, welcome to YWO. Favorite author, book, band/singer, etc. What genre do you write and listen to? Hope you like it here. If you have any questions you can ask anyone around here, or just VM/PM me. Good luck and I'm sure you will find some useful tips here.

Thanks Shahd. I am into fiction/action/conspiracy stuff. I'll be sure to ask if I have any questions.
