  1. LostinFL was looking through the forums one day and saw an interesting post. He replied hastily. Welcome!

    Hello!

    Hello! It good to meet you. I am also new to writing. I like writing short stories and poems. I hope to see more from you!
  3. Maybe its not a victory. Maybe progress is defeat. My old self, I cannot be. Where does he go? Out on the street? It's not fair, he does all the work, just to take a chair? I served me well, to get this far. Doesn't improving, for the better, change who you are? Part of my old self feels like he's dying. Why should he go, when he's the one who did all of the crying? I often wished to be strong. I don't want my weaker-self to be gone. Don't let go, keep it together. I want to be me, forever.
  4. Just tell me what to do. If I can, and its not that disagreeable to me, I will do it easily. Especially coming from you. I don't mean to be a slave, I do mean to serve, Its less that I wanted, Its more than I deserve. Why do I hurt this much? At one point in time, I must have been very wrong. Or does it mean, I'm just that strong? Hard to see, when I fold with just a touch. I know what nothing means. I tried to be everything. I was wrong. I'm not that strong.
  5. I guess the best way for you guys to get to know me is through my writing. I'm going to try my hand at poetry to tell you who I am. If this should have been it's own tread somewhere else, I apologize in advance. I see it as my introduction continued. Let's try it and see how it goes. Time for me to lose myself in this moment. If you doubt, read it and find out, you will learn what I'm all about. I like to write my inspiration into the work. Sometimes it doesn't fit perfect but I still want it to work. I started with nothing, if I made something then, it just wouldn't work. I had to get to work before I could work. I became my own teacher and became a reacher of the highest heights imagination had to feature. There is madness for sure, but a method may be pure. It's like taking a test with no one to grade. Did I ace it, or was every mistake plain as day? I will never be able to see it, I need a better teachet. History has yet to be made. What I thought myself is here. I await a grade from a viewpoint other than my own. Without it I can never be fownd. When you can hit a rhyme all the time without needing to stretch its direct. If you have to bend to mend the music, I call it curve. Something with out a perfect fit is sloppy. All these things can be used to add variety to your words. Music is structured, rhyming is too, but it doesn't have to be, abstract can also be true. An off note can make a moment. An intentional mistake can set the stage. Without these things, we would be bored. I don't mean to condescend, I've done everything I can. My growth is stunned and my only option is to find you. I don't mean to be untrue. All I said was right, from my point of view. To say more, would be to spoil. Withholding can be necessary, so we can tell the story we want to. Thank you, Quentin Tarantinu. Obi-Wan Kenobi, may the force be with you. Eminem, you are my man. Don't worry, I am not Stan. Imagine Dragons, you've got the right plan, like it or not. Beastie Boys, I will never forget when you let the beat drop.
  6. I'm not going to claim to understand everything you guys are saying, but at least I know the intent to help around here is genuine. I don't have much of that where I come from, so from the bottom my heart, thank you. Thank you for your help, I would love to hear as much as anyone has to say. Also, I'll get around to reading everyone else's stuff, like the blog posted here, eventually. It's just a massive undertaking. I have a feeling that my heart is just going to feel the way its going to feel and I have to somehow come to terms with that.
  7. There was a time in my life when i thought all hope was gone. I am certain the Lord softened my heart and when he did that, I became open to at least the possibility of hope. I found it in a movie. The more I try to write as a story teller, and not just telling something, the more I don't like spoilers. Forgive me if I'm vague. Or maybe I'm just being coy. In the movie, the main character was also in a 'all hope is lost' situation. He found hope, and with his God given talent, found a way out. I didn't see my way out, but I thought maybe if I just try to hang in there, that might be enough. The character in that movie, his story gave the the inspiration I needed to hold on to hope. I can honestly say, a movie saved my life. In a later movie, he died. Even though he wasn't ever a real person, he really was my hero. What else could you call someone who saved your life? And now my hero is dead. My mind knows he saved everything, so hanging in there was a great thing, but all my heart can feel is that he survived for nothing because he just died anyway. I really don't know how to handle this.
  8. Hey everyone. I'm not really a good Christian, I mean... I don't go to church or anything. I'm not really a writer either, but I did have a story to tell which lead me here. I'm not really anything, except one thing. I've been a dreamer my whole life. Whenever times got rough, my thoughts helped me find some way to cope. Dreaming has helped me learn how to better learn. After awhile, I had enough ideas in my head to form a story that I wanted feedback on. I also wouldn't mind just posting it publicly but I don't know where to do that. If people like the kind of ideas I come up with, it would be great to work with someone. The story is about the dangers of talking to a mad man. I've written a ~6000 word story about it that I'd love to share. Just don't know where. Might take awhile for me to get 10 posts, I am often at a loss for words.
  9. I've got a story I wrote, just over 6000 words long, and I'm not sure what to do with it. This is my first serious attempt at writing something, and I would like some feedback. Are these forums the right place?
