    Haha, hi

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by sarahmfighter, Aug 6, 2010.

    Okay. So.
    I suck at introductions, so I'll make this short.
    My name is Sara, I'm 13 years old. My favorite color is blue, and I love cold weather and ice skating. I love writing fantasy stories, anything that involes other worlds or super powers. I was born an old soul. I get along with my teachers much better than the other kids, and kids my age generally just annoy me. Writing is really the only thing I'm good at yet. I'm currently working on my first "official" book and novel, which is a remake of a story I created when I was 10. I love Dean Koontz. Yes, I am a child, but I am not obsessed with things like Twilight and Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber and whatever. Also, unlike other kids my age, I do NOT want a "bf" and I think those who do at such a young age need to get their heads straight.
    So...yeah. :D

    Hello Sarah, and welcome to WF :)

    I can see a bit of myself in you. My favourite colour is blue, and I dont get along easily with some people of my age, because of their tastes,that are usually those you´ve listed "twilight, miley cyrus....". I´m the guy who his favourite musician is jeff buckley and everyone seem to have no clue about his existence.
    I usually go to chats, and talk to adults, they´re far more interesting.

    Good luck with your story If it´s really the first time you´re writing a story, and the story doesnt get well at the first tries, then just try again, and never give up, and everything will be good ;)

    Pm If you´d like to chat
    Cheers :)

    Hello Sara, 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!
