    hey Honey, Hows the Kids?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Promostarr, Jun 21, 2010.

    Hello everyone, i think i made two posts before discovering that there was a welcome page!

    Well, hello, im a very experimental writer. Mainly working with strange ways of style. My favourite would be the "I.M." style

    Sentance 1.

    Sentance 2.

    etc.

    Wrote in the present tense and in the 2nd person narrative. Although i am currently working on and off on a sci-fi novel wrote somewhat normal. It will be around 100-150 pages and I have had a few working titles for it but its always been called Deserted and Delirious. I wrote a first draft 3 years ago and ive been re-writing it on and off ever since. havnt wrote anything in 6months appart from my experiments but i think its always nice to have a break from a main project.

    I tend to write very morbid things and i enjoy pushing alot of boundries of my plots. With very extreme sex scenes, gore etc. I dunno what the rules on this forum are like on that so i think im going to reserve my more... rude.. texts for now. 90% of what i write is complete trash, but a friend of mine is my biggest fan and wants me to post some of my stuffs onto the internet.

    So. Here i am. Hai. Hei. Hello. :)

    Hello Promostarr, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    We do restrict content to approximately PG-13 US film rating standards.

    Please read How to Use the Review Room before you post there. Posting your own writing for people to comment on should not be among the very first things you do here. 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 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 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. 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). 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!

    Hello! I'm new too.
    To the forum. Not necessarily to writing.
    Can I offer you a small piece of advice? You can take it or leave it. It's entirely up to you.
    If I were you, I'd learn the basics before trying to experiment. Please don't take offense. I'm fairly new to writing as well.
    The problem is that artists like William Faulkner are able to pull experimental styles off, and that's well and good, but the greats only receive credit for their more experimental work because they're confirmed to be "greats". Pulling off more difficult, unusual styles can be a major challenge, so make sure you know exactly what you're doing first.
    That's just a piece of advice for you. Take it or leave it. It's certainly not meant with any arrogance or hostility... as I said, I'm a fairly new writer too, after all! It's just some of the advice I've gotten from other people (English professors, professional authors, etc.) (...I didn't receive the advice directly from the professional authors.)

    Danke mate.

    I see what your saying here. But im not trying to sell off my works. I dont want to ever publish any of my works. "Pulling off more difficult, unusual styles" is not a problem for me.

    I have no abition to ever have my stories sold. Hevens no! I want them to be read for free and enjoyed! Which is why i put them onto my website! I write for fun and i hope others enjoy my efforts too.

    I never force myself to write and im aware im not that good. but i devise very elaborate plotlines in my head and they just go around and around until i feel like im gonna pop. So i write them down and its fun! So, no i dont want anyone else to pay for my own mental instablity, but i do want them to enjoy it.

    So with all respect, i think you got me wrong, but thanks anyways :)
