    Hello world!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by rainy_summerday, Aug 13, 2015.

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Rebecca, and I am 21 years old.

    I am very pleased to be part of your community as of today. I have been writing since I can remember, but not in any professional capacity so far. To me, creating fictional worlds is like a nasty habbit that I cannot shake. Sometimes the urge to write just overwhelms me :)
    I believe that sharing the joy of writing is a good idea, that is why I registered. It sounds like a lot of fun, even though I must confess that English is not my first language, therefore my responses may seem clumsy at times. Which is a bit embarrassing on this site, I know.
    Until now, I have been mostly writing short stories and (attempts at) novels. Oh, and one drama! I like to dabble in different genres as well.

    I am looking forward to participating in lively debates, as well as inspiring people and finding inspiration myself.

    Hi Rebecca, and welcome to the forum. :)

    Always fun to meet other non-native speakers! Do you write your stories in English?

    Here's our New Member Quick Start to get you started. See you around!

    I wrote an English drama for my university course, but other than that, I usually stick to German. It's quite hard to write WELL in a foreign language. But I am not adverse to trying out new things. I might attempt to write an English short story in the future.
    Thank you for the nice post and the link :)

    Hi, welcome!!

    If it's any consolation, every attempt of mine to write a story in Japanese has failed, haha.

    Welcome!

    Don't worry about it, don't let language barriers deter you. I am sure you have many wonderful stories to tell. So reach for the stars! You'll be great. :p
