Hey
« on: April 09, 2008, 01:51:20 AM »
Hello all. I'm Rai and I come to you from the Frozen North. I've always been an avid reader, devouring whatever book is unfortunate enough to be placed in my hands. After driving the local library ladies nuts trying to find something attention gripping I hadn't read, I decided it was time to start giving back.

I spend a lot of my time writing these days. Mostly novel length although I've some doggerel and a couple short stories to my name. I'm always willing to stop and read something for someone providing that person is willing to take honest feedback because that's all I'm asking in return.

I've no doubts I'll be seeing you around and that you'll all be seeing far more of me than you bargained on when you read this.

Until then,

Rai

Alaska! I have no concept of Alaska at all, so I think I'll make one up in my mind.

Snow - Check. 
Huskies - Check.
Rugged Locals with Big Hearts - Check
Evil Oil Barons and Property Developers - Check
Blubber Sandwiches - Check

Ok, my work is done here, was I close?

Welcome.

GAH! MISCONCEPTIONS! *covers eyes and hopes they'll go away*

*grins* In other words no but nice try.

Snow- Currently melting.
Huskies- There are actually more laboradors and wolf-hybrids in my town
Rugged Locals with Big Hearts- More like Rugged Locals that make mental paitents look sane.
Evil Oil Barons and Property Developers- They'd probably get shot by the hunters or the tourists, take your pick.
Blubber Sandwitches- Actually I preferr Turkey and Cranberry Sauce on dark rye...

Only joking Kalanna Rai, I was being silly.  Alaska sounds like a stunning place to my mind and it is somewhere I've always wanted to visit but being in the UK options, thus far, have been limited.

I'd always imagined that the air is very pure and the Sun very, very bright.  A life affirming place.

Hi Rai and welcome to MWC. We are all pretty friendly so feel free to dive in. The Forum Etiquette Guidelines http://www.mywriterscircle.com/index.php?topic=7415.0 will tell you about our few rules, I'd recommend you read it first (it won't take long) and there are guides to posting in them at the top of each of the review boards.

If you have a specific subject of interest, the search bar at the top of the page is your best friend but don't be scared to ask for help if you need it. The moderators are the guys with the blue stars under their names, though all the members are helpful. Most of all, have fun and don't be scared of joining in.

Hello Kalanna Rai

Welcome to the forum.

As you can already see there are interesting folk and many helpful ideas here. 

Are all your writings sci-fi ? (I read your first post)

Where in Alaska do you live?  I was fortunate enough to do one of the cruises from Vancouver to Anchorage.  The glaciers and rainforests are unforgettable.

Good luck with your writing.

I live somewhere in the Tongass National Forest and that's all you'll get. *wink*

As for my writings, they run the gauntlet. Sci-fi is actually my weakest genre which is why it was my first post, I'd rather get feedback on it first than anything. Generally you'll catch me writing high fantasy and I've had some mild success writing humor. You'll probably see quite a bit of it before long.
