    Personal Forum Favourites?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Cheeno, Oct 18, 2008.

    I don't know if this has been covered before, but I'm curious to know what parts of the Forums users prefer, and why? Personally, I'm into the Novel and Short-Story sections. Crime and thriller short stories, to be specific, though I'm also partial to General Fiction at times. What's your preference?

    Fair question. Myself I loiter mostly in the poetry forum. This is because I enjoy review and like to fairly detailed, I cannot afford the time to offer such review elsewhere though have previously spent much time in the general Short Story forum to this effect. As much as the next, I enjoy a furtive couple of minutes in the lounge, a relaxed area to provide distraction and tidbits of interest. And of course I enjoy the contest forum, running one and competing in the other where time permits.

    I spend a lot of time in the Review Room forums. Mostly, I lean toward Short Stories and Novels over Poetry or Lyrics, and least on Screenplays.

    But The Writing Issues area is where some of the most interesting and thought-provoking questions come up. I learn a lot from that part of the site.

    I visit the General Writing, Character Development, and Plot Creation forums mostly, then peek into the Lounge, though I usually haven't much to say.

    I don't visit any of the writing forums as I'm not here to give writing critique. *shrug*

    Novels and poetry. Short stories tend to bore me unless they are good, which is hard to do.

    Poetry.
    Oh, and more poetry.

    Thats the only area I have been focusing on for a while, and I find myself myself the most helpful I could be versus the other review areas.

    Otherwise, I tend to review in the poetry section, although have been known to dip into short stories and lyrics. I also try and take a look at some of the Charector Devlopment and Plot Creation forums.

    Word games is where you'll find me. I love playing with words and even more so when i can see how others turn them around. Other than that the Writing issues, novels and poetry.
