    Greetings!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Arbalest, Aug 7, 2014.

    As the title say, greetings!

    I've stumbled on this forum some time ago, and finally decided to create a profile. I'm trying to improve my writing skills - at the moment I'm doing it just for personal gratification, I've no short or long term plans about landing a job as a writer. I'm not a native English speaker, so having good feedback (or even any feedback) seems to be hard…so here I am.

    You'll see me mainly in the short story section: I like short pieces, and it's easier for me working on the syntax/language this way. I hope to help this community in the same way you’ll help me.

    Cheers!
    Your friendly neighborhood Arbalest

    Hello, nice to meet you!
    You're english is very good. In fact I'd say it's better than many native speaker's I know.
    I'm sure you'll do fine here. I'm new as well.
    I really love short stories to, their plots are very unique a lot of the time. Telling a whole story in such a short space is truly an art.

    Hello, Arbalest. Welcome to the forums. It's nice to meet you. :)

    I'm also not a native speaker, so I understand your problem. ;)

    But don't worry, I'm sure you'll have a great time regardless.
