Hello! I guess lets get this out of the way...

Poems are not my niche
My poetry skills should be kept on a leash.
I have no sense, rhyme or reason.
If iambic pentameter were law and lord, I would be treason.

True story for all to see
I find my comfort in rants and raves, truly.
Doesn’t mean I’m a hater of sorts,
But rather a person angry at…everything.

I won’t take it out on you.
I save my breath for pop-stars who pretend to be blue.
Strutting around with hoo-has riddled with lesions,
Confuses us all to think its hunting season.

I mean no lasting harm.
I enjoy great stories and tales from afar.
There is no greater feeling than being taken away
Only to come back and do it again the next day.

I applaud you for sitting through this wretched poem
I prefer to get my falls out of the way – hit bottom
And continue upward without delay.
I look forward to reading your works and what you all have to say!

Phew!

Welcome, CL! That's an interesting way of introducing yourself!

I'm looking forward to reading your work - you seem like an interesting person

Make sure to check the FAQ and the rules & guidelines, and for any other questions feel free to contact any member of the staff. We'll be more than happy to help

Now make yourself at home I'd say, with some lollipops and crunchy tea

Hey everyone! Thanks for the warm welcome. What do you all prefer to write? I hope not poems.

Ilseum, I do adore lollipops. Double thank you!

Hi Chick-Lit (again)

I prefer paranormal romance and adventure. Basically anything where I can write in big guys (don't have to be human) with big swords!

I also dabble in poetry, but I use it as a way of working out my thoughts

What's your latest work?

Hey that's cool. What's this story you wrote with 20 views but no comments?

My latest work is that gem you see up there, but I'm working on mostly non-fic pieces. I can't finish anything. I'm hoping that posting on this forum will make me do just that.

Hi Chick-lit

I have had one comment now from Drama - as I browbeat him in to it. But you can find it in the members only forum entitles 'Fight scene - opinions wanted' <tries to hide excitement that someone else might take a look>

I need to finish editing the story that scene is from which is a 83,000+ novel. But my head is already bursting for the next one as it's part of a series, so I started that last night and managed to get nearly 4,000 words down, so I'm going back to it tonight after my anniversary dinner with my hubby.

That's the second time you've been nice to me today - is it because you were missing me?

Lorry, I read your piece too, but haven't had time to give you a worthy response. Maybe if I stopped farting around here, I would. Myabe, I'll do it right now...

have you tried to get it published? Or have you been sending out your manuscript and been receiving only the remains in return?

Oh - sorry.
Soul Taker is the name of the Series. All bits so far are from Soul Reunion. New story (currently) called Soul Reflections. Third in series to be called Soul Admission (I think).
I am sending out letters of enquirey, profile and symopsis to selected agents starting next week. Got a few friends holding my hand about it as I am actually very nervous - yes. Me. Nervous.

And hopefully the long running hi-jack and argument should give you some idea of what life on the forum is like...

I have that effect on people. Besides, shaking things up a little can be good...
