    Hey there

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Musictastic, Sep 13, 2011.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm Emily and obviously new here.
    what can I say? You'd think as a creative writer I'd know how to introduce myself, lol
    Well, I am 19 years old and from Belgium.

    I'm entering college soon, majoring in Advertisment & Public Relations
    I've thought about going for Journalism, but I love fiction more than I love non-fiction
    so I decided to play it safe and write in my free time.

    I've always wanted to write a novel, but I've recently discovered the wonderful world of television, and now my dream is to a creator of a huge tv show. Like Marc Cherry or Jenji Kohan.
    But right now, I concentrate on writing music reviews on my blog :)
    However, I hope learning a lot here, and I've surfed around, and I'm thinking - I might.

    That's it for now, I guess.

    Any questions or something, you can always ask.

    Hello! Welcome. Wow, writing for TV sounds hard. I am more of a novel writer I think. Television seems like it would be putting a stopwatch to every word you type. Good to have young writers in the world! For a while there I was afraid texting would replace prose.

    Hello Emily, 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!

    Thanks for the info, Cogito
    & thanks everyone else for the warm welcome!

    and yes, I'm aware that script writing, especially tv shows, is really hard. But I love dialogues, and I'm obsessed with drama, haha. A girl can dream :)

    Welcome!
    Being from Belgium, you are (relatively to the other forum members) close to me; Netherlands!
    Are you from Flanders or Wallonia?

    Anyway, have fun on these forums!
