Just saying Hello
« on: January 24, 2011, 10:01:23 AM »
 Hi I`m new to this site and new to writing really. I started various things but never really finished them. I like to have a go at scripts and comedy sketches. I`m also not great on sections like this where you have to introduce yourself. I can never think what to say. Last week for the first time ever,I had ago at a poem It`s the first one I`ve written. In fact I`m not even sure if you`d class it as a poem.

   However I seem to be having some trouble uploading  it to your site. I`m trying to send it as an attachment.

Welcome to the forum, Ford Street!  You can only send attachments when you've posted 50 times so maybe copy and paste into a message?  I don't know how the poetry part works here but if it's the same as the "review my work" then maybe critique a few other poems before you post your own?  :)
