    Nice to meet you everyone!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Adrian Ruiz, Mar 15, 2020.

    Hi! My name is Adrian Ruiz, I'm a 23yo Venezuelan living in Peru.

    I got excited about writing thanks to a class I took a couple of semesters ago in college. But I'm not really sure where to start or how to improve.

    I haven't decided in what genre or what kind of stories I want to write. My main goal with writing is to learn how to express my feelings in a way that resonates with the world.

    Welcome! As to the genre you want to write, if you think about the novels/movies that you enjoy, you'll identify what your storytelling interests are. Good idea to start with micro-stories where you can express your feelings. Personally speaking, diary-style writing doesn't help me since I don't have problems with grammar or syntax; imo it's important to practice plotting your writing at least on a basic beginning-middle-end level if short stories or novels are the end goal.
