    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by nayrneal, Sep 20, 2011.

    Hello all who care to read. I'll keep this short and to the point. Writing books was my first dream as a child and remained strong until
    I began to focus on drawing. Still to this day though, I would love to eventually publish a book or at least get some of my poems out there.
    I look forward to possibly growing with some of you and criticism is always welcome when i post...

    Hi nayrneal!

    Welcome to the forum :D

    I used to love drawing when I was younger. I have a prized picture of Pumba, the warthog from The Lion King, stuck on my wardrobe :redface: Sadly my talents have dried up in that well, but I'd be happy to read over anything you post :)

    Hell


    Fire flashes in blackness
    Enter oblivious happiness
    Sees flickering faces and relaxes
    Smoke blows to the empty spaces of only god knows
    Music seduces long flows of thought brought back to cold road
    Car drifts and souls lift
    Who would have thought we'd die high just to find Satan's gift

    Anyways, welcome to the writing forums! :)

    Hello Ryan, 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!
