PostSubject: Hello Everybody!    Sat May 19, 2012 12:23 am

Good evening to all of you!

My username is bookworm118, but you can just call me Amanda. I just found this site today, and was really intrigued by the concept. You see, a friend of my mom's told me a little while ago that I needed to connect with writers. You know, be able to talk to people who are just as passionate about writing as I am. I'm hoping that is what will happen here.

Yes, I am a Christian; have been since the age of four. That's also the time I started writing. Haha, yes, I did write at four years old. It was a poem, and it was... let us say... interesting. Well, the very least I can say for it is that it actually rhymed. I am 18 now, so yes, I am a teenager. Be very afraid. No, you don't need to be scared. I'm homeschooled, so that should make everything better.

Before I move on with my writing "experience", let me just say that I can be very critical when it comes to things I do. I promise that I won't be hard on anybody, it's just that I have a habit of being very negative about myself.

Ok, onto my writing. I think I've dabbled in most types of writing there is out there: short stories, poetry, songs, even a skit. I have not finished many actual stories, I admit. I haven't had the determination or the patience. Maybe this forum will encourage me to actually try.

Most of the short stories I have actually finished were for school. I did write and finish a story a couple of years ago, but looking back on it, I almost despise it. I can tell that I have improved, so I guess that's a good sign.

I've written about 10 poems in the past year. I have written some poetry off and on since I was 4, but I've really picked it up again recently. I like them because they're shorter, and less complicated than actual stories. I'll probably post one of my favorites for my first entry on here.

I think the type of writing I love most, besides poetry, is song writing. I haven't written many, but all the lyrics, and every note that comes together comes from God. I've tried writing songs without Him. I've never completed a single one. Every song I write is God speaking to me; whether it is to comfort, or to encourage.

I have only written one skit, and that was not necessarily "Christian". It was not sinful, by no means. It was just silly. I wrote a fake debate round poking fun at the topic for this year and the method of how we do things in my league.

I think that's enough for now. I've been writing too much. But, I guess that's what we're supposed to do here. I have not written any books. I am not a great writer. But I do want to become that someday. So, here's to the first step!

Thank you for reading!

P.S. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask. I would love to get to know the people I'll be showing my works to. :)

Hello Amanda,
Welcome to Christian Creative Writers. I am so thrilled that you joined us. I think you'll find a very warm and friendly group here. There's no need to worry about making mistakes. After all it's all about learning and improving. If you want direct advice and critiques on your work, don't hesitate to ask. I love to help other Christian writers with their work. I have a bachelor's degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing, so I enjoy sharing what I've learned with others. (And teenagers don't scare me, I happen to have a couple of my own. LOL) I look forward to reading your work and getting to know you. Feel free to send me a PM (personal message) any time you'd like.
