    Greetings from Germany

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by SunnyInTheSnow, Jan 7, 2011.

    Hey Guys,
    As I'm new, i'd like to introduce myself :)
    I'm Sunny, 16 years old and I'm from Germany well, i'm afraid my English isn't perfect, i hope you won't mind if i make some little mistakes, feel free to correct me if you want to ;)

    well, i started writing down stories when i learnt how to write^^ before that i imagined stoeries not being able to write them down^^ of course my stories used to be very simple and, to be honest, bad... but know i'm writing a fantasy novel, isnt it great?

    You may ask why i'm here. Arent there sites like this in german?
    No, there are sites like this in German, I'll tell you my favourite one if anybody wanna know, but there are some reasons why im here:
    1. i think i can't get enough help
    2. i just love to speak english, i love english speaking people, i love foreign languages at all :)
    3. i really hope to find a nice community here (i'm sure i will ;) )
    4. there are many other reasons which doesnt matter, so im not going to list them all. Fact is: im very happy to be here

    ok, thats all for now, bye
    Sunny

    Guten Tag! Ich hei├če Simon! :p

    Welcome to WF Sunny, I'm sure you will find this forum incredibly useful when it comes to writing and improving your English. I am not a native speaker either and posting on forums is an awesome way to work on one's writing skills.

    Du kannst mich erreichen, wenn du Fragen hast.

    P.S. Yes I'm still working on my German. Feel free to correct my mistakes.

    Welcome, Sunny. As far as English goes, don't worry, I've been speaking/writing it for over 40 years, and I'm still not very good at it. :D

    Greetings! Hope you have a good time here on the forum. It is always good to join many forums, especially when you are learning another language. After the people my partner and I have spoken with from Germany, I must say, your English is rather good, so don't worry too much. (My partner has recently had his first print novel released in Germany. Soon he will be joining a German writers circle to talk about his book with his readers.)

    Enjoy the boards.

    Guten Tag Sunny, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Please read How to Use the Review Room before you post there. Posting your own writing for people to comment on should not be among the very first things you do here. It is worth taking the time to see what other people have done to improve their writing, and see if some of it applies to your writing as well. That is part of why we require members to review other members' work before posting their own for review. On the other hand, there are no restrictions, other than content and copyright rules, on showcasing your work in your member blog.

    Also, be aware that posting a piece of writing on any public site, including this one, will greatly diminish your chances of selling it for publication. Removing the writing later does not alter that fact - once posted, it is irreversibly considered published. So do not post anything more than a small excerpt of any piece you are planning to submit for publication.

    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. Remember to check out our FAQ as well, and be sure to read through the forum rules, too, to avoid any misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Respect for one another is our principal mandate.

    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 constructive critique as a vital 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 forums on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work (and on that note, please only post each item for review in one Review Room forum). Also, please use the same thread for all revisions and additional excerpts from the same piece of writing. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    And while you're looking around, don't forget to check out the RPG forum for improvisational fiction. Also try our Weekly Short Story Contest and Weekly Poetry Contest. They actually run more than one week apiece, but any member may enter, and all members are urged to vote for their favorites.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
