    Hello from portland, or!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by VioletTara, Aug 2, 2015.

    Hi Everybody!

    So glad to have found this forum!

    I used to write a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the process-- whether any of it was good or bad, beats me. I remember one instructor told me that a screenplay I wrote for class was like a bad Friends episode! That kinda dates my age. Of course I thought it was hilarious! In any event, I miss writing, I miss the process of writing, I miss the interaction with other writers. I also used to be an avid reader but there was a long period of no-reading. After several life-changing events in recent years, I picked up reading again starting with One Hundred Years of Solitude. I couldn't put it down and I had a hard time finding another book to live up to it after I was done. I found something completely different and fabulous in Tipping the Velvet. :agreed:

    I've always done journal-writing and made notes about story ideas, plots, characters, etc. and now I want to put it all (or some of it) together.

    Anyway, looking forward to connecting with folks!

    Violet

    Welcome to the Forum :superhello:
    If you like tipping the velvet, then you should enjoy fingersmith (by the same author) which I really liked.

    Welcome to WF! Sounds like you'll fit right in. :)

    If you like Sarah Waters, The Little Stranger is also a wonderful, creepy book. It's not LGBT-themed, so that's a bit different, but the story is great and gave me proper chills!

    Anyway, here's our New Member Quick Start to get you started. See you around!
