    Meet Me; Hayden Lee.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Unwritten, Dec 1, 2010.

    Allow me to introduce myself.
    The name's Hayden. I'm from Los Angeles, CA, the land of sunshine and happiness. My passion is writing, of course. Sometimes you might find me in the studio getting my picture taken.

    I moved to Los Angeles when I was six years old. My entire family was born in New York. Westchester to be exact. My parents were on Broadway until my younger brother was born. They retired early to care for our family the best they could. My father now owns a few venues in California, thus our move to La La Land.

    Me, in a nutshell?: Carefree. Energetic. Loving.
    My friends keep me sane. My family keeps me grounded.
    Where you might find me?: On the beach. In my car. With a book in my hand.
    I write on everything. Napkins. Sticky Notes. My Hand. Walls. The Ceiling of My Car.

    I like bright colors and loud music. I'm known for giving a thumbs up every so often. I hate flushing the toilet. I can eat an entire box of Oreos in an hour. I'm a terrible singer, but that doesn't stop me. I drive like a Grandma. But I like to go fast. Rollercoasters give me the hiccups. I sneeze when I see bright lights. I'm an expert at staring contests. I don't like dishwashers. I'm addicted to perfume.

    I've gone sky-diving. Rock climbing. Hiking. I enjoy visiting condemned buildings. I want to live in France, Germany and Japan. All in one year. I enjoy hot cocoa with my brother. I will own a monkey some day.

    I think that might be all I can say about myself. I'm excited to begin the journey that is writing a novel. I hope to become inspired by the people I meet here. Caio!

    Hello Hayden, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Please read How to Use the Review Room before you post there. Posting your own writing for people to comment on should not be among the very first things you do here. 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 Review Room, 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 Review Room, 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. The Review Room 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 Review Room 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!
