    Just another apprentice.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Horse Dragon, Mar 29, 2014.

    Hey, All!

    I've come to the conclusion that writing is a collaborative apprenticeship - an art that requires years of practice, study, and dedication. I've been working at creative writing for 13 years, and I only now feel that I've learned enough to get started. Without the minds of other writers to shred my work - to tear it apart and suggest how to put it back together again, and to share thoughts on what it is that makes a good story and good writing - I would flounder on the shores of self deception.

    So here I am! I look forward to your shreds.

    Hi, welcome to the forum. I like the collaborative thing. It was another writer who essentially taught (is teaching) me how to write.
