A strange introduction :) (1 Viewer)

Apparently I have to introduce myself before I can ad anything to this forum, so I will do so :)

It does not matter who I am, what Job I do or what life I lead. It does not matter who I love, who makes me cry and who I dream about in the middle of the night. None of this will have any meaning to you. You do not know me anymore than I know you and you probably don´t care anymore than I do. None of this is relevant.

What is relevant is that I have a great pashion for writing and my imagination seems to know no boundries. None that I have seen up to today anyway. I am looking for a co-writter. Someone who, like me, wants to create characters that lives in a world of our imagination. Someone who does not care if this end in a good or bad story. This does not matter. All that matters is that they come alive and that possible maybe alone the way our writing skills and our ability to create deapth in characters becomes stronger.

If you want to know how this practically all works let me know and I will tell you and hopefully you will decide to become my writting buddy and we will discover that together we are better than we ever dreamed we could be :) or at least we will have lots of fun trying

In case you spot all sorts of spelling errors in this thread, observant as you are, you would have to find it in your heart to forgive me. English is not my birth language and therefore it may not be perfect, but it will do :)

That was very profound...

Welcome to the site, Mistique! I look forward to reading some of your work.
 
Hey, welcome to the site =]
Hope to see you round some time!
And I'd be interested in finding out about your co-writing idea.

Bienvenue.
I'm pretty interested in who you dream about in the middle of the night.
Is it a gorilla? That's where my head's at.

A writing partner? What's your niche?

PS Glad you informed us of the spelling thing.
'Pashion' - passion. Though I hate to say it, i like it your way.

Thanks guys

Thank you all for such a warm welcome :) makes a girl feel right at home


James, it is rather easy. I exchange msn adresses with whoever chooses to write with me, if only to give it a try. We then meet there. We each think of a character and together we decide on a place and a time. Whatever we want, today in London or centuries ago in Russia, anything goes as long as we both find it an inspirational time and place. The motivations of your character or his or her hidden agenda or secrets are completely up to you. I have no say about that and neither do you about mine. We then start writing there and then. You start or I do with 3 or 4 lines and then the other writer takes over and writes 3 or 4 lines and so on. You can do whatever you want in your lines; introduces completely new characters like your characters sister or someone from his or her past, have police officers arrest you, a street robber jump out of nowhere or simply leave without saying a word. You could actually do something much less dramatic than that and simply say hallo ;). There is no point of thinking out the storyline all the way to the end because it will go directions you didn´t think of anyway because the other character reacts to yours in ways you may not have expected. The only thing you absolutely can not do is speak on behalve of the character of your co-writer. After that you just let them live..........and experience teaches me that you will end up in a story that neither of us planned and that just seemed to appear from the twilightzone between your mind and mine.


Now last but not least, fox. If your so interested in my dreams, come and write with me, I would love to give it a go with you :) And just maybe you will find my dreams hidden in the thoughts and secrets of my character as I tend to do that. My character is never like me, but always like the me I dream about. Who knows maybe my next dream will be about a fox..............

My niche.......hmmm........difficult to describe as it tends to change everytime, but I do have a high facination for human behaviour and the psychological dynamics behind it. I have a character that I write about a lot and she is it for me at the moment, Mira. I have written about her so much that she has become a living person in my mind, like an alter ego. Come and meet her sometimes :)

Hello to you, Mystique, and welcome to the forum. There are not too many Dutch speaking people around here (maar ik ben er eentje van), so it's always a nice surprise. I write both in English and Dutch.

Hey Mistique. That was intriguing, to say the least. Bravo. I can't think of a single snide, sarcastic comment for this intro... :D

What genre do you write?

Welcome to WF.

Well hello there. do you like fire? or perhaps individual socialism? demonic procrastination?

i hope to understand your "clouded" life of self closure. no doubt depictable in self help magazines... though i think i'm going to like you, friend.

Welcome to WF.


Well, thank you DarkDyer. That actually sounded like quite a compliment :)

I don´t really have a genre yet, or maybe I never will. What ever inspires me at te moment is what I will write. At the moment stories that show the hidden inside world of the character. The character at the moment for me (and she has been for the past two years' is Mira. You could meet her if you wish (om msn anyway) :)

I find fire highly facinating. In a hypnotising way it pulls me closer and I can´t seem to avoid getting burned ;) or did I want to avoid it at all?

English not being my native tonque I had to do some googling to understand some of your words. I found: procrastination: conquering the inner demon. I can´t really say I want to conquer my inner demon, I rather bring it out :)

I strongly believe in the innervoice, and mine is telling me that I am going to like you too :)
