    自己紹介・My Introduction

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Richard Ogata, Aug 31, 2013.

    Hello~

    I am Richard Ogata, and Alaskan clarinetist who would like to become better at writing. All through high school and college my favorite classes were ones that involved a lot of creative writing assignments. However, I never took my writing very seriously. I felt that it was not skillful enough to be published while I was in high school, though in my freshman year of college I did attempt to get some poetry I had written published, but I did not have the time to write enough poems that the publisher was requesting of me with my class and work load. Now that I have more free time, I would like to take advantage of it by becoming better at something that I love to do, hopefully with the support of a well knowledgeable community.

    Richard! Welcome to our little slice of crazy ;)

    You'll want to have a look at the Forum Rules, first and foremost. After that, just look around and join the conversation. Please know that we have very recently upgraded to a new forum platform and there are a few finishing touches we are getting in place as we speak. Have the fun!

    There's a lot to explore :) You go to your settings and edit your signature. Add the link and it'll come up. I don't remember if you can do it immediately or not though..
