    Princess Fairytale says Hi

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by PrincessFairytale, Aug 1, 2010.

    I am 21 years old and dangerously passionate about writing as well as reading.
    I don't even remember when I started writing. But all I know is that I can't imagine myself without it (now I know I am not the only one who feels that way)
    I can die for chick lit, and suspense thrillers, and a lot of things in between.
    This will sound insane but once the characters are created I live them, and even talk like them when I am not writing. (it gets a bit creepy when they are serial killers)

    Anyways, just stopping by to say hi. And that I can't wait to read what all of you are working on and to share my little pieces of heaven with you. So wish me luck.

    Hola Princesa, 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!

    It does not sound insane to me. You're lucky to be able to get inside your characters heads and I'm sure your writing must be all the more rich because of that.
    Oh yes! Hello and welcome to the site

    Hello Princess and welcome :)

    I think many people (actually everyone:p) here shares pretty much the same feeling, regarding writing.

    I hope you´ll enjoy the forums :D

    Hi Princess.

    So, you're dangerously passionate, huh?

    Cool. I'm passionately dangerous. We should get along passionately and dangerously. ;)
