A few people on here have mentioned that they are writing or thinking of writing a novel (Including Pell). I started my second one last night and was wondering if there was any interest in swapping tips or ideas. I reckon there will be a fair few who have half written books sitting on their PC's and just need some motivation to get them finished. Who else is a secret author on here? My first tip would be to buy "On Writing" by Stephen King. Even if you don't like his books, there's some really useful stuff in there and I wish I'd read it before writing my first one.
