    Another hello

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Caliope, Jun 25, 2015.

    Greetings!

    I am relatively new to writing. I've had one college short story writing class in which I learned a ton. I did well and was emplored to finish my "book" that I wasn't planning on writing. After letting the one chapter I wrote sit for a long while, I find it's something I often think about actually finishing and find myself here to glean what I can from what is, obviously, a great resource; this forum and it's members.

    I am enjoying reading here, I like Sci-fi and Fantasy and the occasional Romance.

    I always introduce myself late because I don't want to lose the page for my initial comments that prompted me to join. So, I apologise for introducing myself after two critiques.

    Critiques are something I am probably not good at yet but I try to give constructive input in every one so take them for whatever they are worth to you. I am trying to do them according to this forums outline, also something I am not yet good at. Feel free to critique my critiques.

    I think I would really enjoy being an editor but, alas, I don't have the right experience or education.

    I am very glad to be here and look forward to getting to know everyone.

    Thank you! I'd say it's more that I value them than like giving them. :) I'm glad if I can help.

    As you give more of them, you get better at giving them. This, in turn, allows you to catch a lot of your own errors.

    Yes indeed! There are some excellent writers here. I'm finding it a learning experience in critical thinking trying to find something constructive to say on several of them.
