    Hey Everyone! I've come to say hi!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Catcouger30, Sep 15, 2016.

    Alright so... I've recently started writing again and decided that I'd need a bit of help with grammar, forming engaging plotlines and well. . . a way to get inspired! That's why I sought out a writing, and I was kinda led here. Right now I'm actually working on a story which I think is turning out pretty good - I've only got three paragraphs complete though :-D - and I hope to share it with everyone soon! It may be a bit cliche however, because the story itself is about vampires - they've been a bit overdone I think - but I'm trying to add in my own unique twist to them.

    Well, I guess that's my introduction! If you have any questions or just wanna say "hi" then I'll be here!

    I'm sure there are more experienced critiquers here who would be much more qualified than me but its basically reviewing someone else work with a critical eye in the sense of the story. So things like particular actions that don't make sense for the character, or dialogue that doesn't fit the time period it's set in. The main thing is always make your critiques contractive and try not to nit-pick on grammar etc.

    Oh I see, also I edited the post because I actually found an entire board dedicated to explaining that.
    Sorry ^ _ ^;

    Is the twist a secret? I ask as I've had a crack myself — A Dracula/Boys from Brazil mashup

    No, the twist isn't really a secret, I could tell you
    a little about my vampires if you'd like.

    Sorry, I was at school all day so I haven't had the chance to describe my plot yet. But I'll actually do that in the plot
    development board soon, it might take a while to write up because there is quite a bit of back story to it as well.
