View Full Version : Welcome, new members!
August 19th, 2010, 08:17 AM
I noticed that a few new members had joined the team, and just thought it would be a good idea to have a space for you to introduce yourselves, ask questions, tell everyone about your favourite new brand of chocolate, your WIPs, or maybe suggest ideas for group YA-horror-epic-poetry-set-in-BC12000 water cooler games, anything you like :).
I know things often seem quiet around here. But don't let that deter you from being as hyperactive as you wish.
So, welcome again!

I'm Theresa and I'm new.
I'm also from Sydney, Australia.
I'm interested in finding a crit group. So what I'll do is take a look at your files and see if I can whip up a few crits. Guessing that is alright?

Wow, you've done a lot of critiquing in such a short time. I'm afraid I can't use your advice though, since I've kind of abandoned that particular project for the moment :(. But thanks all the same.
I'm looking forwards to seeing what sorts of things you write!

Great to see you jump right in! I hope you share some of your work with us too!
Alice - I am sad you abandoned the GGG for now. I miss it. I want to know more...
I am in the critique course that Laura took a while back. So hopefully I will be a better critiquer when I am through.

welcome to yahtwo :)
how do you like Savvy? Do you have any questions? This website is a great place. What genre do you write? Are you published. I would love to read some of your work :)
For me:- i have a few completed first drafts up my sleeve that need a lot of work but i'm currently working on improving my writing skill etc. Grammar is a big hole in my world, it sucks me down and holds me captive lol - meaning i suck at it lol. I am getting there though. Since joining here i feel like i've learnt a lot and i think my writing has improved. Still a long way to go but i will get there.
At the moment i am learning through workshops etc. And currently setting up a story in the NOV bootcamp. I am also working through ideas etc to make my first draft (done in the jun Bootcamp) better.
can't wait to read some of your work.
Kara - i think i will do that too - do a critique course. I'm going to message Liz and ask when she is doing another course.

Hi! I'm new! My name is Rebecca! Just joined Savvyauthors today! I would love to join a crit group but I'm on the basic membership so I'm not sure that I can. I am currently working on my 8th draft to my WIP. It's a fantasy/futuristic type novel. My favorite genre is dystopian, example being The Hunger Games series. I'm not sure if this is the right place to introduce myself but I couldn't find a general 'introduce yourself' thread. I really hope I can upgrade soon but right now things are tight. I hope to learn a lot here! Looking forward to meeting people!

Welcome to SavvyAuthors. There are many threads that fall under genre and interests where people introduce themselves. It can be a bit daunting, but worth it. :) You are correct, to join a writer's critter group, you need to have a Premium membership.
I also joined the basic, but quickly moved to premium for many of the extra benefits. I've taken outstanding courses for $10-25 a month instead of $25-35. In a short time, I more than recouped the $30 with the savings. The crit partners have been supportive and insightful, too. We're gearing up for May boot camp, where we are dividing into teams to win a prize...and do some great editing and writing along the way.
Any way you use Savvy Authors, you won't lose. Welcome aboard.
I write fantasy with a sf influence, paranormal and young adult, so no doubt we will cross paths.

Thanks for the welcome! I'm excited to be here! And awesome for science fiction! It's such a great genre! I love making up new technologies. My latest story involves a chip that the government forces newborns to get so they will have all the knowledge they'd learn in school. Sounds great, right? Well, my characters are finding out its not so great. Anyway, glad to be here!

That sounds awesome! Creepy so. Looking forward to hearing more about it.
