    They call me Wolfie

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by wolfi, Dec 5, 2010.

    as the title suggest Wolfie is my nickname (Wolfie was taken so i just took out the e)

    I've been writing for half of my life, well half of my life is only 8 or so years but still. ;) Do to a very rough start at life and just being a young kid who did not like school, I'm not that good at grammar, spelling, punctuation, or heck anything with writing. that dose not stop me form trying however. I was in first grade and i got some printing paper, you know the old ones that where all connected and must of been hundreds of sheets if not thousands?
    For the next two years I wrote one "story",it use the whole full box, it was one long run on sentence that made no sense. :D
    since then I've rewriting and rewrote\burned copy after copy in till here i am with the whole thing "figured out" (but changes daily) I know the story well enough to quote it, I decide to start again after a few months of putting it down and now figured its best i try to make it some what good this time.

    I have hundreds upon hundreds of drafts saved on my computer
    so much that it takes up more then 80% of my computes memory and we are going to get a beterr one now

    some more about me

    I also play guitar
    write songs
    draw (badly with my hands good with a computer)
    as I've said I'm a musician
    My goal is to go to medical school and to become a doctor

    Hello Wolfie, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Please read How to Use the Review Room before you post there. Posting your own writing for people to comment on should not be among the very first things you do here. It is worth taking the time to see what other people have done to improve their writing, and see if some of it applies to your writing as well. That is part of why we require members to review other members' work before posting their own for review. On the other hand, there are no restrictions, other than content and copyright rules, on showcasing your work in your member blog.

    Also, be aware that posting a piece of writing on any public site, including this one, will greatly diminish your chances of selling it for publication. Removing the writing later does not alter that fact - once posted, it is irreversibly considered published. So do not post anything more than a small excerpt of any piece you are planning to submit for publication.

    If you haven't explored the site yet, you should probably do so soon. Newcomers often gravitate to the Lounge, the Word Games, or the Review Room, but there is much more to be discovered if you poke in the corners. Remember to check out our FAQ as well, and be sure to read through the forum rules, too, to avoid any misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Respect for one another is our principal mandate.

    As for the Review Room, new joiners often wonder why we do things a bit differently on this site than on other writing sites. We emphasize constructive critique as a vital writing skill. Training your eye by reviewing other people's work helps you improve your own writing even before you present it for others to see. Therefore, we ask members to review other people's writing before posting work of their own. The Review Room forums on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work (and on that note, please only post each item for review in one Review Room forum). Also, please use the same thread for all revisions and additional excerpts from the same piece of writing. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    And while you're looking around, don't forget to check out the RPG forum for improvisational fiction. Also try our Weekly Short Story Contest and Weekly Poetry Contest. They actually run more than one week apiece, but any member may enter, and all members are urged to vote for their favorites.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
