    I would love to write a novel and have it published. The idea of walking into a book shop and seeing something I wrote on the shelf is a dream.
    Your worst habit?
    I often feel that I am not good enough in what I do - this goes for writing too. That often leads to not writing at all.

    It is a tough game, but everyone does their best
    Where do you write?
    At home
    What else do you want Word Clouders to know? eg: do you have 9 cats / like paragliding / eat nothing but tinned fish / work in the bath / live in Kettering?
    I am from the UK originally, but I have lived in the Netherlands for 20 years. I am an English teacher and bilingual studies specialist. I am married with three children, a dog and a hamster.

    As Seagreen has said, you need to request to join the group. It looks as if you've asked to join, because it's showing up in you're groups section. If the request hasn't been accepted you need to talk to WW. If it has, it's just a matter of clicking ...

    Clair, have you not received an email with joining instructions? If you haven't checked your spam already, I would do so. Have you tried phoning Writer's Workshop? Presumably there were helpful numbers when you received your payment ...

    Hello, I'm new and I should have started the 'WW how to write a novel' 10-week workshop on Monday. I thought I had done enough by simply joining the cloud - but I realised on Friday that I had to gain member ship to the group first. I'm just waiting ...

    As Seagreen has said, you need to request to join the group. It looks as if you've asked to join, because it's showing up in you're groups section. If the request hasn't been accepted you need to talk to WW. If it has, it's just a matter of clicking on the group and going into it to get started. Good luck.

    Hello,
    I'm new and I should have started the 'WW how to write a novel' 10-week workshop on Monday. I thought I had done enough by simply joining the cloud - but I realised on Friday that I had to gain member ship to the group first. I'm just waiting and waiting now. Is there anything I can do to start the course already? I'm quite frustrated that I am falling behind in this way...
