Default Hi

Hey, I'm new here (if you haven't noticed) and well...Hi?

But all weirdness aside, Hello! I am a newish and aspiring writer and deeply want to improve because it's what I like doing. I'll probably lurk around and read other's work before I work up the confidence to post my own, and I look forward to receiving all of your criticism (hopefully)

("...welcome to writersbeat..." went the goblin hoping that Birb would have what it takes to take form on the internet, explaining "...perhaps both "what to write" and "how to get better at writing" too is only part the battle, where coupled with this would be both finding and then keeping one's readers reading one, not really a battle though, more a process of drip feeding content to them as we post alone here, so now if you first think out your persona, and then post around getting yourself known by it, then your readers of which I will be happy to be one, if I'm not already one by now, will follow you mostly out of curiosity to begin with then hopefully out of expectation after that...", the goblin broke off at this point to point out the alternative though, restarting "...conversely you could hide yourself by bowing to that conformity of the norm I suppose, yes but who ever remembers that which doesn't stand out to them...", whereupon the goblin dipped his hand into his pocket and pulled out a thermos of coffee, before removing the cap while unscrewing the lid too he poured some of its contents into the awaiting cap handing it to Birb before taking a big swig of it for himself, smiling "...now you'll write with us won't you, I mean more readers read posts than most anything else, and all you have to do my dear human, well if I may be so bold as to call you a human that is, is to entice your readers towards you by those posts you do, so drink up now for they await us as we speak...", while what little time was left just slid between those unnoticed moments, somehow this could go either way the goblin knew but meeting humans was just an opportunity not to be missed he felt)

Welcome Birb. Do you have a favorite Genre?
If you surrender a civilization to avoid social disapproval, you should know that all of history will curse you for your cowardliness - Alice Teller

If John of Patmos would browse the internet today for half an hour, I don't know if the Book of Revelations would be entirely different or entirely the same.
