    Hi! I'm new

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Jacki, Jun 3, 2007.

    Hey everyone, I am new. Very glad to be here and looking forward to talking about writing!!!! Nobody in my "real life" writes. :(

    I've been writing since I was a kid (used to write "chapter stories" that had 1-page chapters, when I was around 10 ... LOL :rolleyes:) and graduated with an English/writing degree about a year ago. Someday I'm going back for an MFA and I hope to teach creative writing at a college level eventually. I love to write just about anything although I'm better at some things than others. Not so great with poetry. :p

    Nothing big to speak of as far as publications, except for smaller literary mags including my school's yearly mag. I have a few books "in the works" but it is such a long and painful process!!

    Well ... that's about it. Oh and my name is Jacki. As you can see. :)

    Hello, Jacki, and welcome,

    I too used to write one-page chapter stories - I think I was 7 or 8 at the time. Mine were truly terrible, though, and I think I discouraged myself for a long time.

    Eventually, I plan to teach also, but in college math and science. I am very glad to see others who are driven to enter what is a vital but often thankless profession.

    Anyway, welcome to the forum, and I hope you have plenty of inspiration and fun!

    I used to write one page stories too. I was made fun of by my classmates but remember, when you're good, you don't NEED those extra pages XD. Good luck on the book, it IS a really long process, I'm still PLANNING my novel. I only know like three of my friends write but a lot of them draw...heh.

    Welcome.

    Welcome to the site :) I used to write sooo many stories when I was little, my mum used to go to the post office every saturday and whilst I was there with her i'd buy a new exercise book and fill it by the next week. Ended up with a series of about 50 books...

    Much more motivated back then... now I can barely finish a book.
