Hello, I'm an aspiring writer that has yet to finish a story. I do have about 15-20 story ideas written down in various places; hopefully I can someday get around to writing a few of them - I think they are pretty good ideas.

Anyway, I anticipate improving my work via these forums. They look really helpful at first glance.

Troubles finishing a story? Try this tip: Write the ending first. Then go back and write everything else. You may find this much easier. Knowing the precise ending beforehand makes getting to the end a breeze, typically.

Welcome aboard.

Hello and welcome CK,

Keep at it, it's just like breaking in muscles: the more you do, the easier it gets to keep going and the stronger you get. I know you'll find a lot of helpful people in this community.

Joe

When do I get rid of this 'New Member' title? A certain number of posts?

Looks like you managed it. But you're a newbie around here until everybody else decides you're not. I figured that out the hard way!

Anyway, welcome aboard!

Actually, I think I'm on permanent newbie status .

Eh. I probably have only myself to blame.

Permanent newbie status? Hmm, I never thought of that. Wonder if I'm headed down that road?

Wonder if that's a good thing or a bad thing?

Welcome and have a sit. I'm with you on the idea wagon, I have two that I need to finish.

Maybe you've seen them on F&F? If not look them up. I'm kinda anxious as to seeing if you improve as much as I have.

Welcome once again, and stay awhile.
