    :victorious trumpets:

    :bows to thunderous applause:

    :realizes there is no applause, looks around to the sound of crickets:

    No? Well fine then.

    I swear I am only mostly mad, yes mad like a hatter, but my bite is worse than my bark. ;)

    So have no fear, the lovable local lunatic is here, come bearing strange tales and random anecdotes to amuse and confuse. :D

    All jests aside: I am a student, and starving artist. I have always been a creative writer, dealing mostly with prose, but I have recently become more serious in my writing, and am working on several projects I hope to have published in the relatively near future. I tend to stay in the realms of Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror and the Supernatural. I still write a lot of poetry and prose as well.

    I just won NaNoWriMo for the first time with my novel currently sitting at a little over 54k words! :D I am excited for that, and I am still no where near done with it.

    Anyhoot..... I guess that's all...... Respond!!!

    Hello KeeLee, 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!
