    Hey, guys!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by HWarrior, May 21, 2016.

    I never knew I wanted to be a writer. All I knew was that I had stories within, bursting to be told. Alas, no one ever warned me that stories in one's head sound infinitely more awesome than those self-same stories on paper. One of my favorite authors taught me how to get past that nagging from my inner critic in three simple steps:
    1. Write.
    2. Then write some more.
    3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2.
    Over the past few months, I've been doing my best to follow this advice. However, inspiration is often in short supply at the best of times. I'm hoping the good folks out here could give me a hand with that.

    Also, I'm an engineer, born and raised in India, presently living in Dubai, that mythical city of sand, steel and glass. It's a pretty awesome place.

    I sense.... good times ahead....

    Welcome. The majority of the community's very friendly, and the workshop is a very useful part of the site.

    Well I would shake your hand, but they put this infernal straight jacket on me. So I hope a warm "Hi, and welcome to madhouse" will do. :supergrin:

    C-ya around the forum, there are a great many lovely people here that can be helpful (Also a couple of us nuts).:superlaugh:

    Okay, now who let @Cave Troll out of his room again and how in Gods name did he get that gag out of his mouth this time?
    Anyone? I need answers!
    I don't even know how i'm going to get him back in there, there's no way throwing a raw steak and locking the door behind him can work for a 6th time...

    @Chained : We could arm-wrestle who gets the first crack at him/her. Or I could slog him and you come from his blind side and straighten him out until he succombs to greater reason. Reason? Just hear me talking! :D

    Now now, my doctor, she told me if I was a good boy, that she would take out the gag.:superlaugh:Tell @Chained I have permission. Thank you, your lovely. :superlaugh:

    ... Promise this time you'll help instead of throwing banana peels, slinging hot butter, and laughing as you video tape and make comments like, "Butter try not to slip and peel out!"

    That's what you said last time when i found out your 'doctor' was a bed sheet filled with pillows with a smile face drawn on it. I didn't find the real thing tied up and thrown in the garbage compactor for three days... by then it was too late, there was no way i was digging in there to get him out of that mess no matter how many times he asked how i escaped my room as well.

    Also, i'm sorry, my minds been in a weird place since yesterday.

    Nope. But I could throw a few confetti around, or maybe rice to get you both off to the marriage bed safely. Of course, I will give you the tape afterwards. See?? I am really looking out for you both! :D

    Well I think it is the largest one to come into our running joke this far. But I find that my fellow writer was took my last joke out of context just a bit. (I think they are fighting with their Wiafu) IDK:supergrin:

    They, me and my brethren, don't say "welcome to the madhouse" for no reason.
    Anyway, always good to have more interesting people join this interesting forum. Have fun and I hope you learn a thing to two, and get some great feedback too!

    Hi, @HWarrior, and welcome to the forum! Please read the New Member Quick Start - it'll get you going around here.

    I see you've already met a few of the usual suspects, but many of us are somewhat less, ah, crazed than Cave Troll, Chained, and the others who seem to keep escaping their cells. Fear not: you will find writers here with whom you can discuss everything from grammar to the meaning of life. We're friendly! :)
