    Hi I'm Ella December

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by EllaDecember, Jun 2, 2013.

    Hi guys, I'm a writer who goes by the name Ella December. I'm 20 years old and I've written seven books so far.
    Apart from writing books I'm also a music journalist. I've written a diverse range of books that differ from content, structure and theme.
    To view my books check out my scribd page; scribd.com/ella_december
    All my books also feature artwork from my friend Mikey Espinosa.
    I have two collections on my scribd. As I've established myself in some circles as a music journalist, when I first started writing books I wrote stories influenced by music. The literature influenced by music are part of a collection called the RAW (Rhythm and Writing) series which has three titles; Take Care, Blame Game & Nostalgia) http://www.scribd.com/collections/3863626/RAW-Series
    I also embarked on writing a short story series which I would describe as a chick lit drama called Mimi Memoirs. This deals with the life of 24 year-old Mimi and how her love life affects her friendships. It also as a series discusses the influence men have on women and what women tolerate from men. http://http://www.scribd.com/collections/4143933/Mimi-Memoirs
    Hope you enjoy reading and I'd love some feedback.

    Hello Ella, 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 Writing Prompts, 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 site 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!
