    Just another visionary.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by MrAmazinAsian, Sep 30, 2011.

    First off, I'm gonna start by saying this isn't gonna be your usual dead fish of an introduction. I don't screw around with writing. I live and breathe writing. I work writing. If I critique your writing, don't feel scorned-its not personal. I'm a film director and in my line of work we don't take crap nor do we give it out.

    I wasn't built to lose. I never give up. I run marathons for FUN. ONE DAY I WILL RULE THE WORLD! BWAHAHAHA *cough* I mean... what?

    Anyway, I love to write and I'm good at it. (right, and I'm vain too.) I'm an upperclassman in high school now, and I've never NOT gotten a 100 on any sort of essay/narrative/paper.

    I'm not very religious, but I am a heavy subscriber to fate; though I'll admit these last few days my belief has been shaken quite a bit.

    They call me the amazing asian... not a self given moniker, and I'd personally say that I've earned it. I play four instruments (if you count singing as an instrument) and speak spanish, french, and english. Spanish and English fluently, french kinda-sorta fluently, I'm working on it, as well as currently learning a bit of Russian. I type at close to 200 words a minute, and I read at close to 2 pages a minute (on average).

    Did I mention I'm incredibly vain? I suppose you have to be, in my line of work. I'm a filmmaker (or filmmaker-to-be, depending on your point of view). And you have to get past a lot of thrown stones. In a way, vanity is almost a job requirement.

    I'm involved in theatre and I love every second of it. I act, write, and direct plays for our school. I'm excellent at all three. (did i mention I'm vain? ... yeah, I think I did already.)

    As you can tell, I love to talk about myself so bear that in mind ;)

    Anyway, I suppose I'll close with my favorite quote: "We need men who can dream of things that never were." ~JFK

    Hopefully ya'll don't kick me out too quick ;)

    Hello Amazin, 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!
