Hello everyone!
« on: November 07, 2019, 01:34:23 PM »
Hi, I was just invited here through reddit by "throw_away_2246." I was looking for a place to learn about writing and get critiques, so I am thankful I found this site! I wouldn't usually click on invites like that but I sensed their honesty and decided to give it a shot since it seemed genuine. I myself (F) am working on creating some short stories to practice my writing and storytelling some, and am making plans to write a novel series in the future.

Welcome, Michelle, to our little and relatively sane corner of the Big Bad Web.  What sort of fiction do you want to write?

Welcome Michelle  :)

That was my invite you got. I invited about 30 redditors over indiscriminately and so far you’re the third to respond. The quantitative returns are as meager as I’d expected, but I’m optimistic in terms of quality ;D

As the ‘recruiter’ I feel it incumbent on myself to remind the new arrivals to keep an eye out for stickies at the top of discussion boards in order to get familiar with how the site and its members normally function.

Again, welcome!

Hi, GS. Welcome to BWF.


Everyone here is friendly and willing to help. Just ask us.


Hop on over and join in the games. Sooner or later we'll start another writing challenge. I hope you'll join us and do stay around.

Great to see the new blood.  That's what Dracula said. Muwahahahaha!


Seriously, have fun.

Welcome aboard.
The cool thing about writing what you know is that you can always know more.
