    So, I am not alone?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Cristina G, Jul 21, 2017.

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Cristina and I was born in Romania during an oppressive communist regime. At the moment I live in the UK where I finally managed to start working on my childhood dream. As everyone in here, I crave for recognition and appreciation of my stories. The competition is ferocious and I am not a competitive person. I believe there is a market for everything in this world and a place for everyone. We don't have to step on others dignity or destroy them in order to be successful.
    Emotions and feelings are my main interest. My style might result hefty for those who don't grasp passion.
    It's been a long time since I participated in a forum. I am terrified of confrontations with people due to a long history of bullying in both virtual and real life worlds. I had a look around, but I am yet to learn a lot about how to proceed further. I would like to express my gratitude to the founder of this page, Daniel (if I am not mistaken). It's a great opportunity for writers.
    Good luck everyone and thank you for accepting me in your "creed."

    Welcome to the forum :) I don't think you'll have any problems here, we're all pretty laid back and the Mods are excellent. :D

    Thank you.

    I am having an issue replying to the threads. It warns me it looks like spam or something. Not sure I will be able to post this either.

    No worries. The software isn't perfect and occasionally does strange things. If anything pops up, please PM me. I'm here to help. :supercool:

    Hi Rosacrvx - Thank you so much! I have spent a lot of time with myself to learn what my limits are. Yes, the people I met on this forum are dinosaurs. Very human. I highly appreciate good humans. Cheers.

    LOL! I admit I don't have the slightest clue of what you mean by that, but I'm OK with the comparison. I've always liked these guys:

    But I'm not nearly as scary. :)

    This is so cool actually! What I meant that you are writers who don't shred others apart. Humans with humanity. Sorry, the comparison was very clear in my mind. That's a problem when you write, a big, big problem. Thanks for the picture.

    Phew. For a moment I thought I was crazy... - well, I am crazy in general - but crazier than usual I meant.
    Thanks guys, you really prove to me that humans are not at risk of extinction.

    I came to understand that the people who suffer most have a heart, a soul and a conscience. Plus a brain.
    Thanks again,
