    Hello :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Green Grass, Jun 9, 2011.

    Hi everyone, it's nice to see all of you.

    My name is Kaia, but many people just call me 'K' because my name is kinda hard to spell and say. Feel free to call me by that, or just by my username, Green Grass, or just 'Grass' will be fine.

    I guess I should explain how I found this wonderful place called writingforums.org, huh? Well, I had just recently decided to get away from one of the Forums I was at for awhile. I won't give names on the Forum, for that would be rude and putting me accountable for it. But, I found this site while browsing many others on Google. Since I love writing, I couldn't help but come here, consider it's about teens as well. So I hope you accept me here.

    I have some likes and dislikes, but I'll tell you all what I love the most! Writing is my favorite subject in school, and it's one of the most creative out all of them, along with Art which shows the creativity through pictures. However, writing shows it through words and text that you can't describe from a picture. Writing has inspired me alot for stories that I am currently working on to make into books in the future. I also love to read, so if you have something interesting, make sure to notify me and I'll check it out. ;D I am also a fan of Dogs, any kind of dog I like, and will love them all the same. I play video games rarely, but every once in a while, it will become an option. I love roleplays, if you have a suggestion to me for one, just ask, I'll check it out and notify you if I will join or not. I love cooking, and will currently try to take a cooking class in High School.

    I am a 14 year old young writer who puts alot of heart in stories and pieces. I'd like to hear what others say about my writing. Everyone has their own way of showing writing, and mine is beyond what others think a 14 year old could accomplish.

    I thank you for taking the time to read this and understand me. I hope we can get along just fine. :D

    Hey,
    Welcome to the wonderful world of writing forums. Think you will like it here. I've been on the site nearly a year now but due to a mega huge wait for real internet and getting my life sorted out I have been absent for a good few months. So, with this in mind, I am relatively new also. So if you need anything or want to chat about your work or anything I'll be happy to assist as far as I can.

    Hope you have fun here. Talk soon.

    Hi!
    I started seriously writing (as in comprehensive stories) when I was around 13-14. Back then I was able to write a poem so touching it make people cry. But now it's another 14 years and I feel the spell is gone. Maybe you are not at your best and don't realize it. But either way I can't tell because I don't get any feedback on my works.
    Anyways, nice to meet you. What do you write about?

    Well, thanks both of you. :)

    I write about alot of different things actually, but my mind is based off of the least thought about stories. I have a few of them, but here they are:

    The Lord's Touch (Book 1)
    Runaway Seven (Book 1)
    Reflecting Sins (Book 2 to Runaway Seven)
    Ocean Dancer (Book 1)
    Golden Gates (Book 1)
    Silver Roads (Book 2 for Golden Gates)
    The Flute Player (Book 1)
    Saltwater Skies ( Book 2 for The Flute Player)
    Raven's Swarm (Book 3 for The Flute Player)

    All of these, are ideas that were least thought of. I have currently been working on Chapter 4 for The Lord's Touch, Chapter 2 for Runaway Seven, and Chapter 1 for Ocean Dancer.

    Not as much, but I hope to at least get one of those books completed. I really want to show others how I can get things done. :)

    Yeah, it seems like a load of work.
    And here I was thinking that working on 3 projects overwhelmed me.
    How is it coming along? Can you keep writing it down before you forget all the ideas?

    Well, Sang Hee, I don't forget my ideas as much as creating them myself. I can tell you, If I work on different novels, I'm sure to learn from each of them on my own. :)

    Well, it's good to see you then, Steven! :D I just found this site and joined in for the fun of writing! However, you've seen the long list I have to write my books. Hope they turn out alright. :)

    Seems like you're pretty confident about yourself.
    I hope you'll exploit the chance of feedback here. What genres do your works contain?

    Hello Kaia, Welcome to the Creative Writing Forums.

    Please read How to Use the Writing Workshop before you try to post there. Posting your own writing for people to comment on should not be among the very first things you do here anyway. 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 Writing Workshop, 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 Writing Workshop, 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. We also impose a two-week waiting period before you may post writing for critique, to give you time to become familiar with what is expected and how the site operates. The Writing Workshop 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 Writing Workshop 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!

    Hmm, well, I usually have a few different kinds of Genres coming around and such. Alot of them are mainly having to do with Fiction, (Due to talking animals in The Lord's Touch) and maybe some Action as well as horror and maybe a Thriller as well as the ever so common Violence. :) In the three stories I have been working on, these are the genres for it:

    The Lord's Touch: Adventure, Fiction,
    Runaway Seven: Action, Violence, Thriller, Tragedy
    Ocean Dancer: Thriller, Romance

    Other than that, if you have any other questions, feel free to ask. ;D

    Alright, uh. It seems you have the same approach as me. Don't care about the genres. Just write.
    My book (though fictional) is a life story and in one's life all kinds of stuff happen. This story needs to be told and so there's no use in narrowing it down to only one genre to describe it.

    I don't really think about genres as much as the main point in the story. But that is a good tip though. :3
