    hello all a new story teller here

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by lessa, Oct 25, 2007.

    I say a story teller since until recently I have only told stories never written them down.
    I would make up stories to entertain children and to amuse myself.
    I am a Canadian in Ontario, married 31 years.
    I love being around children always have and that is where my story telling centres around.
    I have read some of the stories here and they are usually very good. Not always my style but who knows what might change my reading style.

    Hello there - I've already seen some of your work and it pleases me you've got stuck in already. Your story telling pedigree should shine through, it may wel be harder to be a teller than a writer. anyway I hope all is to your liking and if you have questions then let us know.

    Alsio if you are interested we run poetry and short story contests which you'd be more than welcome to enter: follow the below links for more details.

    Hello Lessa, 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!

    Welcome to the site lessa. You reminded me of my earliest writing - drawing cartoons and writing a small sentence on them. I remember this one...the merboy :)p) nevertheless, I hope you enjoy it here and make yourself home.
