Are you a writer, whether published or unpublished? Come here to talk to other writers and discuss your projects. I've written fanfic novels before, but I'm currently starting my first original novel. It's really challenging! The synopsis at the moment is, "A privateer and a professional duelist fall in love against a backdrop of intrigue in a world inspired by 17th century England." A the moment I'm really enjoying the research, but wondering if the whole story isn't terrible. This is my first story that is first and foremost a love story.
