Hello everybody, my name is Valentine and I am an author & scriptwriter, meaning that I it's actually my work. I have a small video production studio and, together with other guys, we work on commercials, ads, etc., but we also work on original and creative projects (and that's where I write most scripts, synopsis, but also short stories).
I have started using Scrivener since I find it a great and useful software, and I am sure I will read this forum and, why not, share with you some of my works too, to get your feedback.
I am not English native speaker, so any feedback about my English will be greatly appreciated! :oops:

Welcome, Valentine. Your English is better than that of many English people I know. :wink:

...the chance of pregnancy is reduced significantly.
i am happy to give feedback on short passages.

be warned, though. my feedback can be blunt... always well intentioned and aimed at helping you improve, but possibly more honest than you are used to.

as such, i will only chip in if directly invited.
