    Aspiring Narrator would like to improve writing skillz

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Catrose, Mar 10, 2013.

    Hi, my name is Charlotte Duckett. My website is as follows: charlotteduckett.wordpress.com

    This entire forum looks strange and confusing to me! Or that might just be the lack of sleep talking (It's 1:30 am over here!) Call me Cat, most people do. That nickname stuck because it's three times smaller than Charlotte and I'm always smiling, like the Cheshire Cat. Literary-inspired nicknames rock!

    I'm an aspiring audiobook narrator who's having a bit of trouble looking for clients. I'm too young to go Professional, though I do have access to a recording studio and a professional set-up. I volunteer for Librivox, which provides free public domain audiobooks for everyone. We believe that if a book can be read for free online, it should be listened for free online (oh, and I have nightmares about Computer generated audiobooks! I mean, who can sleep with a robot reading you a bedtime story!)

    So anyway, I figured that, while I am definitely here to home in on my writing skills, which are somewhat lacking lately, oh and I'm here to make new like-minded friends, I am offering to record free short stories for people here, if that's allowed. Then I'll have something to put on my website, which acts as my voice acting resume, and you get a free audiobook to cherish! Any interest?! :D
    Oh, and I am very experience in narration. I have recorded for various radio dramas, audioplays and audiobooks. I have samples on my site.

    Thank you all and have a good day! :D


    ETA: The "z" in skillz is to be ironic, not because I can't spell!

    P.S. I agree literary-inspired nicknames are awesome.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Cat!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirements. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter!

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.
