    Hello people, good evening

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by SunnyRabbiera, Jul 10, 2008.

    My well "name" is Sunny Rabbiera, I am a maturing writer with a lot of ambition and quite a bit of skill.
    I am hoping to become a children's author, targeting kids ages 7 to possibly 11.
    I also want to write a few adult detective stories for adults 20 to possibly 40.
    I am interested in crime novels, science fiction, and yes children's books.
    I am mainly hoping to enter the rare field of kids sci fi, a area sorely hurting in this age of Harry Potter and magic.
    My screen name here comes from one of the characters I have made for one of these children's sci fi stories.
    My main theme for these stories is alternate worlds, alternate possibilities where what is true on one world is not for another.
    Then comes my adult detective stories that are both mysterious, intriguing and murderously funny
    Anyhow I will be around off and on, but hope to get some feedback on my works.

    Hello Sunny, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here. It is really worthwhile 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.

    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 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 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). See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Well I have read many books in my day, the works of HG Wells, Tolkien, Frank Herbert, Douglas Adams, Stephen King and the like so I know most of the bases of good writing, plus I have had plenty of beginners experience as a fanfiction writer.
