Hello
« on: February 06, 2016, 08:21:10 AM »
Bonjour et bon matin.

New to the forums, not quite new to writing. University grad. I've extended a few of my university papers into articles, published. I used to, well still do, write song lyrics - for years I worked with the lead singer / song writer / family friend of a "garage band" that did well enough for itself that my cousin also belongs to.

I guess I am here because I want to practice my fiction writing - writing non-fiction is easy in comparison. Song lyrics, when you have multiple people to use as sounding boards, easy. Fiction writing, given how it has changed & the multiple genres, not quite.

By the way, is there anywhere on the boards to post song lyrics. I don't see anything.

Hi & welcome to MWC.

We don't have a board devoted to song lyrics, so I suggest you consider posting in the poetry section. I consider poetry and lyrics to be close cousins, myself.  ;) http://mywriterscircle.com/index.php?board=10.0

Please take a moment to read our etiquette guidelines-
http://mywriterscircle.com/index.php?topic=7415.0

You’ll find more tips in the blue threads with the stick pin icons at the top of each board. These will help you as you learn your way around.

Please post a few critiques for each one you request. It’s considered good manners and keeps things fair.

Consider entering any open flash, short story or poetry contests. They’re fun and anonymous. You’ll find them at the top of the Writing Games and Challenges board.

Should you need any help along the way, just message a moderator.

Have fun,
 
Laura H

Laura H thanks for the welcome. I'll admit, I spent a few days stalking the forums before deciding to join. Looks interesting.

Glad you made the leap from lurking to posting.  :D

Welcome to the forum, UtopiasCult!
There is no beginning or end. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present (unknown)

Money cannot buy happiness but somehow, it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes Benz than it is on a bicycle.
