    Music lover new to writing

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by NewbieWriter, May 9, 2008.

    My real name is kassandra & I picked NewbieWriter because I've only been trying to write for about a year.
    I started at the end of senior year & now have tryed writing a few stories but often give up on them.
    I hope that anyone on here will enjoy what I've written & find it good enough to keep going.
    I mostly write fiction since I get to imagine more of it. I have to warn everyone, I'm bad with grammar
    (that's if no one has noticed yet) so try & bare with me.
    I always seem to have a hard time saying what I mean so I figure I should warn you guys before hand.

    I found this site through writingforum.com after I wondered if there was such a site.
    I'm glad there is because I also join devinatart but usually don't get much help from them, I usually would get "nice" comments.
    I hope I can get a lot better thanks to all of you guys.

    Besides writing I love music & always have. I have been in some kind of music class every year of school, but two which I didn't have control over.
    My favorite genre is rock. Feel free to talk to me about music seeing as how I rarely get to with anyone.

    To end with I'm open to any help you have to offer but, please be polite about it. There's no reason to be mean if I'm not being rude to you. I've had a lot of that at the other site.

    Hello Kassandra, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    I predict you'll be wanting a name change in a few months :)

    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 reviewing as a critical 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). See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Hi Kassandra

    I wouldn't worry too much about people being mean to you - there are always one or two idiots on every forum and if you come accross any, you should ignore them. That said, I haven't noticed anyone being unpleasant on this form yet, though I'm new to it myself. I hope it works out for you - and welcome!

    I guess that it's to much to hope for somewhere without idiots huh? Thanks for the welcome hope we both get what we came for, maybe we can help each other sometime.

    If anyone responds insultingly, click the Report Post icon to the left of the offending post = it looks like a red-outlined white triangle with an exclamation point within it.

    All members are required to keep responses respectful to one another at all times.

    That's awesome I've never been to a site that really did that. I don't know why people get pissed at me, I try to be nice then they turn into..that. I know I'm bad at wording things but I'm not that rude.

    Welcome to WF.

    Mm, I'm one of the people who get easily miffed by someone's words online--how they may phrase or sound like they are saying something. Then again, I'm the same way in reality as well. Bipolar makes me on edge. I'm usually sarcastic in a happy kind of way though ;P

    Creepy. I'm pretty sure I'm bipoar too. I've been to therapy & they figure I am bipolar. It really sucks to be so emotional doesn't it? I've gotten pissed at myself over something someone said when they didn't mean to hurt my feelings. Then I get happy for no reason which is good but, not long after I get sad all over again.

    I went to the doctor saying I thought I was bipolar, I had the feeling I've been this way for a long, long time. They couldn't prescribe me any pills, because I was a little "too far gone" in the syndrome, I suppose. They gave me a psychiatrist's number, but I've never gone. My parents keep telling me I'm not bipolar, but they've never seen me act up. I'm practically in my room all day or at work.

    I never get pissed at myself. I aways do it with other people. I hold a lot of grudges and keep my emotions bottled up--which probably explains my temperament around others. It sucks to shift emotion. I'll be laughing one second, then crying, then angry, then calm and detached, etc. Ugh.

    I had a similar experience but I was sent for anger problems. I won't get help either, I don't know why you don't but, I don't out of fear. I get pissed at myself & blame myself for everything but, that might be another issue entirely. I hold my feelings in to, mostly because when I say something like my opinion I always told I'm wrong. My parents both seem to start with a "no" before they even say their opinion. If it's not that they raise their voices but deny being mad or yelling (my dad & sister anway). I seem like such a pansy, but if someone was to met me they'd think I'd hurt them for any kind of contact.
