    I like to write at 4 AM

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by tiffanylyn, Aug 29, 2012.

    That's when Rumi said to get up and ponder life, and that sounds oddly reasonable to me.

    I wrote a YA novel. Somehow I didn't keep track while typing and hit 200k words. I split the ship in half, switched things around, wrote prologues and epilogues to tie the books together, and now I'm procrastinating on book three of the series as my editor plugs away.

    The Writing Forum is where I hope to learn from other writers about mechanics and the creative process. More specifically I would like to explore character development. I'm a non-fiction reader and writer of marketing copy. This business hurts my brain, thus my break away to fiction for reprieve.

    Let me know if you're into character dev. or other such topics I mentioned above.

    Cheers,

    Tiffany Lyn

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Tiffany Lyn!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirments. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Cogito, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.

    I write funny hours not because I have to but because of my work hours, welcome to the board.

    Welcome Tiffany Lyn. I find I am doing my best work at night early morning. It seems I hear a lot of writers say that.
