    It took me two days to post this.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Mikalijah, Jun 22, 2015.

    Hey there, I'm Mikalijah. I'm actually rewriting this introduction from the one I drafted yesterday, to better fit my mood this morning. But I assure you, you're not missing out on anything.
    I joined this forum primarily to have my lyrics looked at, because I have a severe case of doubt and self-loathing in the way of quality. Ironically, I also fear my work will be stolen, but I know that I have to trust the world in order to couple my lyrics with music.
    I hope to gain feedback, learn from others' writing, and get my work out there.
    I can't wait to start posting!

    Two days to post that? May I suggest a speed-typing course? :) Just kidding. Welcome, and we'll look forward to seeing your lyrics.

    Ahaha, it's more of just being too selective of my words. Thank you!

    Hi,

    Welcome to the forum.

    I look forward to reading your lyrics. :)
    I doubt anyone will steal your work here, and if they do, they don't belong on this forum. ;)

    A lot of people here struggle with self criticism, so you come to the right place!

    What's probably the case is you are your own worst critic I have that problem. I took recently winning a short story competition to think that my writing is any good and people telling me it was good. I still have doubts etc though. There's a lot of music in the charts I find the lyrics don't mean anything, I think the music might be a strong point too? I'm just trying to say that if you can do better than the rubbish in the charts you're on to something.
    all the best
