Hi, everyone. I'm a new member. Took me quite a while to decide if I was going to post this or not. I tend to stay as an observer (or lurker, as netizens would call it), but I thought it's about time to get myself involved in something new. I'm a teen, typical and normal. I never had the interest in reading books, nor did I have the interest in writing. That is until I visited this forum. I'm mainly a musician, and I'm pretty confident about my taste in notes. But I never tried writing lyrics before. My one fear is that my words won't be enough to express what my notes really wish to deliver. Then I happened to have stumbled upon this forum a few days back, and saw that you guys had a songwriting sub-forum where I could learn a bit about how to write song lyrics properly. I'm sort of wishing to find a few guides in there, as I tend not to trust guides made by fellow musicians. Most of them seem to end up cliche, completely disregarding the compatibility of the notes with the essence of the lyrics... but that's just me. I also began reading the short stories compiled in this forum and I must say I was completely astonished and addicted. I never knew short stories could be so good. I began wanting to learn how to write short stories properly after reading a few works. And as such, I'd like to ask my seniors if they could guide a lost lamb such as myself, towards the enlightening path of creative writing. I'm nowhere near talented but I do work hard. My friends say I'm a fast learner, so I hope that would prove to be true in here. Thank you in advance and I'm looking forward to meeting people, and learning from the best.
