    Sergical Stricken

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Quinton, May 9, 2011.

    All the introductions starts with Hey and I'm new. So, why not something actually new. I know that everyone's favorite topic is themselves, so, why not start at that.

    Here is a calaquey (word i made up right now: Mess of ideas put into writing)

    I love all types of media and non-media entertainment. I would love to work with some of you and create something either just for fun or for others enjoyment. You know as well as I that this world is more towards the otherworldly qualities than their own unique gifts and talents. Getting people to see in themselves their own unique ideas about the world is something that everyone would love to do, but rarely does it.

    For example, some people love to sing but rarely sing because they don't know what to sing. Their talent would be shown in mimicking other people's works.

    Get a lyricist whom would love to sing the lyrics he or she writes but just can't. So, you get these two people together and they can create something marvelous.

    Things like this are simple.

    Thus ends my calaquey

    This is a simple brain party i have during writing. I had no idea what i was going to write but i did it anyways. Now i just need to look at this and see what just squirted out of my head. Or not.

    I don't feel like doing that right now. Or maybe ever.


    Thus ends my introduction.

    Questions are now acceptable.

    You seem like a writer of infinite wisdom. Not only do you buck the trend of doing the conventional 'hey, i'm new here', but you spontaneously come up with a new word which just screams creativity and originality. The fact that you said you just write what first comes into your head, reinforces this point. I suspect there could be a bit of genius in you. I look forward to gaining from your philosophical wisdom in your future forum posts :)

    Hello Quinton, 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!

    Now, do YOU have any questions?

    I don't know if you really meant that. But wisdom isn't something I would say i have. I just know what other people say and try not to say it. It is easier to convey your message through writing which everyone understands. But, why do we have so many words for such simple messages?
