    Where would you buy a rainbow?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Valid Name, Mar 24, 2011.

    My name is printer. I lack in maturity and sense, common or otherwise. It's nice to meet you, but I don't know if talking will be a regular thing between us. Communication is like a squeezing out dry toothpaste for me; I hate it, it's hard, but my teeth are important. I used to love writing, and I'm trying to rekindle the old flame, so looking for someplace, someone, or something to help me. I get the urge, but it's kind of like when I go to do it, it becomes a chore and all of my inspiration just dies. Probably issue of confidence. Anyway, my main thing is art. I'm in school to become an animator. But I miss writing, and I miss loving it. Nachos.

    To buy a rainbow, go to the rainbow seller. It's the little guy dressed in green that's waiting at the end of the rainbow. However, they must be quite expensive, the guy has a pot filled with gold, and selling rainbows seems to be his only means of income.

    Welcome to the forum. :)

    I've heard that the green-suited guy already has lots of gold, so he only accepts smiles as payment.

    In rainbow land, but you can only rent it and it costs a lot of gold.

    Anyhow, welcome. :)

    Warning: If someone tells you he only accepts smiles as payment, it's not smiles what he wants from you.

    Hello Printer, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Of course not, a cellar is a dark musty place where no rainbow would venture. Rainbows can be found in a spectramporium.

    Please read How to Use the Writing Workshop 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 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!

    Hi and welcome. An animator? Sounds like fun.

    And as a word of advice: If you find a magical unicorn, Im sure he will lead you to a meadow of butterflies, where you may purchase a rainbow.
