    Yes, my real name is Wonder

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by SJ Wonder, Oct 15, 2012.

    "No, really. What's your real last name?" That's the first question everybody asks when they meet me. They think its a pen name or something. But, no, 'Wonder' is on my birth certificate. One day, my writing will live up to it.

    I hate introducing myself. Should I be business-like, pithy, or real (synonym for clumsy and not-so-clever-as I-wish-I was)? I guess I will say what is on my mind. Some days I love my writing. Other days, like today, I wish I could be a normal 9-to-5 person. I wish I could be happy doing anything but writing. But I can't. So I continue on and reach out to find other people who can't help but to think about what characters may do in given situations or how a plot may proceed.

    I look forward to posting and sharing with you all. In the meantime, happy writing!!

    Hi SJ Wonder, welcome to the forums! I actually knew a girl who's first name was Wonder! Your last name is so cool, wish I had a cool last name that wasn't 12 letters long. :p

    I totally get the love/hate feeling with my writing too, but the love beats the hate. :) I look forward to reading your writing sometime. See you around!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, SJ Wonder!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirements. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Cogito, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.
