    Bunny here

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Funny Bunny, Sep 20, 2007.

    I am on about my 7th novel (unpublished). The first 3 were awful. I've been getting better. I may be able to salvage at least 2 along with this new one. The salvage job is next on my list of things to do. Right now I am about 60,000 words into "the best one I've ever written." I have a university degree in writing (creative non-fiction). I've published a few magazine articles. Hope this means I am a published writer because that is what I checked off.

    Oh, I might also say that I am a little worried that my characters will not be taken seriously.

    Hello Bunny, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    If you haven't explored the site yet, you should probably do so soon. Newcomers often gravitate to the Lounge, the Word Games, or the Review Room, but there is much more to be discovered if you poke in the corners.

    As for the Review Room, new joiners often wonder why we do things a bit differently on this site than on other writing sites. We emphasize reviewing as a critical writing skill. Training your eye by reviewing other people's work helps you improve your own writing even before you present it for others to see. Therefore, we ask members to review other people's writing before posting work of their own. The Review Room on this site, therefore, is a true workshop, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
