    The Crazed mind of an ex-drug addict who needs feedback

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by D.T ripper, Feb 19, 2009.

    So basicly my story is i was hard on the drugs(name it ive had it, alot of it) for the past 2 years. ive been sober for a month now and just finished 2 weeks in a detox service, while in i did a fair bit of writing about problems i was facing decisions that needed to be made and my crazy mindset. i'm really hoping for some honest feedback because its hard to trust peoples opinions when there paid to keep you from depression:D enough about my **** ups im 17 from perth Western Australia the worlds most remote capitol city and i love music and ovcourse my new faviorite past time Day Dreaming, my pseyudonm is D.T Ripper it means Day Tripper coz thats pretty much me the crazy guy on the bus laughing at nothing that wierdo walking down the street alone with a huge smile on his face, but if you all could see what was going on in my head you'd be smiling to.

    Be honest and brutal if you need to be would just love some feedback
    i'll be in general fiction

    Peace, love and warmth to all those who take some time;)

    Well, how about that? I've just joined and I'm from Perth too! I wish you well!

    (PS. I've been trying to get people around here to call themselves Perthlings which is like Earthlings but it's way more specific. Your help is appreciated!)

    whats in the water over their?

    Fluoride I think. :p

    Hello Ripper, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work 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.

    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.

    And while you're looking around, don't forget to check out 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!
