    Hi. My name's Corallyne. What's yours?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Corallyne, Jul 20, 2011.

    Hi. Obviously, I'm new to this forum, but I'm not new to writing. I've been writing for years. I think I started waaayy back when I was eight. (I still have those beautifully written stories about wild ponies and the like.:))

    I'm a big fan of fantasy. Harry Potter, Eragon, Mortal Instruments series, etc. Those are the kinds of things that catch my attention. So, naturally, almost all of my writing is in that genre.

    I'm an avid book reader and I thrive on reality TV, mountain dew, and Doctor Who. I am a big supporter of fine arts in schools, considering I participate in almost all of them.

    So, there's just a little about me. :D

    Guten tag Corallyne, welcome aboard. If you like the fantasies, I'd suggest the RPG forum; there are some good stories going on there.

    Hi, indeed. Fantasy is awesome. There are so many great fantasy books but only so few good movies. But still the books are somehow more compelling anyways.
    I love Mountain Dew as well but I hope the local food stores will become more enlighted and sell it in something else than just cans.

    Hey corallyne, I'm also a big fan of fantasy and I've currently got a fantasy story in progress. Hope you enjoy your stay here and feel free to bounce ideas off of me and everyone else. :)

    Hello Corallyne, Welcome to the Creative Writing Forums.

    My name? It's Dave. But most people here call me Cogito, Cognito (wrong!). or Cog.

    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!

    I love your name! Reminds me of the story "Coraline," but I bet you get that a lot.
