    Hello Writers!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by TheOkayMan, Jun 21, 2016.

    Okay...

    My interest in writing actually began at watching movies. I was so engrossed especially by stories with great depth that I decided, I want to create such stories too.

    I started reading books especially fictions. One of my favorite are those about Sherlock Holmes.

    I like writing fantasy, horror, mystery, and comedy genres.

    I hope that I could enhance my creativity and develop skills in all aspects of writing as well as help or contribute to others.

    Thank You!

    Welcome to WF! :)

    Movies can really be a great source of inspiration, even though writing requires a different skills set than movie making. I know I've been influenced by a few TV shows myself.

    Thank you all for your warm welcome!

    Yes, I write short stories but now I mainly write poems.

    For me, it's one of the best way I could express my emotions if not letting it out to other people by face to face conversation.

    When I write short stories though, I get a positive feeling whenever I thought about what the readers will think of my work. This is one way of motivating myself to write another especially if friends does read it and be satisfied with the story.

    Welcome to the madhouse!:D
    Films is definitely full of interesting stories just like books! I love all storytelling mediums so I feel you.
    Poetry is cool too. I quite like the personal aspect it often has, though I have limited practice with it myself.
