Welcome :) Post it in the fiction workshop, though you might need to make 10 non-thread-starting posts first (commenting on others' submissions is a good way to get through this). 3K words is fine.

Do you know exactly how many posts I have to make before I can start a post? I have now commented on 10 but new posts is still disabled for me. I'm keen to post my story for feedback.

Hello Friends,
My name is Ankit. I am from India.
I want to start a blog - about mental health, exams( Indian competitive exam) and also want to be writer on Quora.
I am educated in vernacular medium. I am taking the plunge into english writing and hoping that everyone here will help and support me.

Excited for great journey ahead.

Welcome, Ankit! We have a thread on mental health here, though you may have to make 10 posts before you have access. I hope you enjoy your time here. :thumbl:

Hello, aspiring writer from Wisconsin, USA here. I think I joined this site ages ago (15+ years) as a teenager, but I'm trying to get back to the craft. Nice to meet everyone!

:hi:

Welcome (back), Dave! What sort of genre do you write in?
 
Hi folks,

This is my first entry into a writing forum outside of standard social media, so *celebratory gesture*. I'm looking forward to getting to you know you all.

I have a degree in Creative Writing with a Screenwriting focus. I've written a couple of screenplays, pilots, and short films, but I'm now branching out into other areas, dipping my toes into short fiction and writing for Medium. I also have a Patreon page with content on cultivating a life as a writer.

Outside of writing, I'm into true crime and passionate about social justice issues. I miss after-writing glasses of wine with my women's writing group. I'm just glad I have my partner and fur-babies with me in these crazy times we're in.

Much love!
Elan

Hi everyone!

I'm an Icelandic/Swedish woman living in Sweden, and started writing just a few weeks ago. I think I have always wanted to write and publish a book, but have never actually tried. Just day-dreaming plots and imagining writing it all down for people to read. Well now, at the age of 27, I have finally started! With a full-time job and a 1-year old at home, I expect it to be a slow process but I am determined to write and publish a book. I have no ambition of making money, I just want to wave around a book with my name on it, haha. SO excited about my new hobby and loving this forum already!
 
A very warm welcome here and wish you be good luck for your goal. It will be nice to learn from each other here.

Me too! Good to have a fellow true crime enthusiast. This forum is great to subsitute the esprit de corps of "no-longer due to Covid" writing groups and book clubs.

Happy posting!!

Any particular type of crimes that you follow?

Ahh, it's so nice to meet you!

Gosh, what type of crimes don't I follow?

I "love" the unsolved cases that are particularly bewildering. I also enjoy serial killer cases because I find those extremes of humanity to be fascinating.

When it comes to specific cases, I think a lot about the West Memphis Three. I also wrote a quick article on Medium yesterday about JonBenet Ramsey.

I assume you've watched the new Unsolved Mysteries on Netflix?

Happy writing!

The JonBenet case has been one that I follow. Mostly because so few clues came to fruition.

I like to follow criminal probes like the one that resulted in the Mueller Report. Sometimes the crimes that don't involve a death are even more fascinating. Like why do these upright citizens get involved in this stuff?

I haven't seen the new Unsolved Mysteries yet, but now that you mentioned it, I will have to watch it. Currently, I am watching the Netflix series Designated Survivor. Although not true crime it is based on various political issues troubling the states right now. A realistic fictional crime.

I look forward to your posts!

I write Sci-fi/Horror. My work is mature and very graphic, but I haven't put in any eroticism yet even though one of my peers says I must, so at least my work is still not smut. lol.
