Wow, this is just great. I don't write much but I'm looking to do more. I find writing to be calming really, and reading is a great joy.

I look forward to speaking much time reading the great stories I know you guys will ofer.

Can't wait to contribute to this forum, as I have a lot of stuff I'd like to show you all and get some feedback on. I'll wait until everything vamps up before showing you all anything.

I'm into surreal fiction.

I am ultra pleased with these developments. I'm looking forward to using this forum to share some ideas, make some new friends and extend my ego. I'm just hoping that lots of people make it a priority to read as much as it is to write, because I think it's important in developing yourself. I made a post recently that kind of hinted at this.

Just a quick question first though, are there any specific rules applicable right now for this forum? Just out of curiosity - formatting might be an issue especially if the BBS still doesn't account for indenting/tabbing. Let's see.

hello

Anyway, hello everyone. My name is Scarab. I love literature of many sorts, from generic horror stories through to the classics, and erotic humour through to non-fiction. I also love films - they influence me as much as any book does.

YAY!

Actually going to make my own thread here in a bit so I can post stories, poems, story ideas in there, others wil likely follow or people will just keep making new threads to post new stories since knowing some people they will be too lazy to look through a whole thread, oh well, this is the literature forum, looking forward to adopting this is my third forum home.

I actually want to be a writer as my profession. I love to read and I'm writing two books right now.

Also, I'll be cool for having my post on the first page. I will be in 2015 (When this will have over nine thousand posts in it), at least.

Well it's about time.

I've been writing since I was in about grade two, of course at that time I was writing stupid shit a little kid would write, but I showed talent at an early age for sure.

I still write to this day of course, but I haven't done anything lately. I have one long story I wrote on Deviant Art, that I'd love to share, some NGers have already read it.
Here is the link. Check it out, let me know what you think.


Yeah, whatever.

I now feel at home. A place other than General or VG I can exist.

I don't have any material, but hey, now I have reason to write.

So I'm guessing the lounge is merely for tossing ideas back and forth, right Fro?

This was much needed. Thank you, Newgrounds.

Writing hasn't really influenced my life, but I've always been good at it, even as a little tyke. Something about my vocabulary catches my teachers eye, I dunno. I'll be posting shit in this bitch anyway, because I want to +1 my post count and also, of course, showcase some of my writingz.

(:

While I think the Wi/Ht is still my favourite forum, C&C has now been bumped to number 3.

Perhaps I should see if people are interested in my script for a music video of Throw Away Your Television by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

I feel like a kid in a sweet shop. Talking of which, I need some sweets.

While this forum obviously doesn't have 'regulars' yet, I'm guessing that any lounge created will serve the purpose of letting users hang out and just chat to each other, like the politics lounge does for those regulars, and like how the Wi/Ht regulars list thread operates.

Unlike what the guys in politics have set up, I think it would be silly to forbid any talk of writing in a lounge thread here. Personally, I'd expect people to give little updates like 'I'm nearly done', but we'd be able to talk about a great deal of other things here (inspirations, opinions possibly, etc.). gum's thread is around for suggestions and such right now, but once this thing gets going, it'll need less of that, more of this, if that makes sense.

Maybe the quality of flashes will rise as aspiring flash artists now have a forum to flock to when it comes to script writing. I mean, I need some feedback on various scripts that I'm busy writing up and I'm sure many others do.

You think song lyrics could work here?

Speaking of reasons for a Writing Forum Lounge, I don't see why this has to be limited to Writing. Seems like a good place to tell people who are intended in writing what good books you've been reading/have read and such. Doesn't have to be a place strict on just writing does it?

I don't see why not.

Anyway, I'm starting to write a story right now about a guy fighting in a war. Any ideas would be helpful.

Of course not, hell, I doubt we could have a forum entirely dedicated to writing and relying on the userbase coming up with stories constantly, it wouldn't work and quite frankly, would be shiiiiit.

I'll start, I've been reading 'The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture' of Reality by Brian Greene.

It concentrates more on the concept and discussion of astronomy, it's very interesting.
