Re: [motet] Introduce Yourself! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello everyone. My name is Laura, I am new to writing...well kinda, I have been dabbling for years but only recently decided to really try my hand at write something others may want to read. I am married with 2 teenage boys that provide me with tons of material on a daily bases. I suffer from adult ADD, and Bi-Polar disorder, the ADD makes it hard to get a full story out of my head at times. I have notebooks full of one or two paragraph stories that I had in my head and had to get out. Slowly I am reading through them and attempting to maybe be able to expand on some.I tend to dabble on a almost daily bases, but I am trying to keep myself focused on getting back to basics and refreshing my basic grammar. I am here to learn to become a better writer, and would welcome any impute anyone would be willing to give.
I look forward to meeting new friends :)

Might I suggest setting a modest daily goal as a means for getting stuff written with the adult ADD. Aim for, say 1 or two pages per day. Each day, re-read what you have so far, then add another page.

Re: [motet] Introduce Yourself! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello, Motet,
I am still having trouble understanding the way a forum works and how to post. I copied this to your post from "New Post". Still learning. Thank you.
My name is Norma Iris and I am somewhat new to the forums. I write poetry, short fiction and hopefully looking to submit them along with an essay or two. I only posted twice before years ago because I didn't know how to use the internet before and stayed away.
Hope to pick up some writing advice.
I remain,
Norma Iris

Dear Laura,

Welcome! I am new also. About your one and two page stories - why not combine some into a short story. Or, make each short stories and put together as a collection. Short stories are a wonderful way to learn how to focus and learn the writing basics too. That is how I am teaching myself because I have several Ideas and sometimes it is hard finishing something completely. So, I've decided to try the short story way to gather strength and mastery of story telling.

I remain,

Sincerely Norma Iris

Welcome, Norma. You can add to a string by clicking on the "Reply" link, or "Reply with quote." And I'm afraid Motet hasn't been seen around here for some time, but I may be able to answer specific questions about the forums.

Dear Pongo,
Thank you. I am embarrassed. Also, no one else has left me a welcome on the Introductions. Embarrassed again.
I switched to Basic Editor because I don't know how to maneuver around the forums (answering, replying). It's going to take some time. But if I practice, I'll learn it.
I remain, Norma Iris

Don't worry about the lack of other responses; traffic has been pretty slow here lately, so it isn't anything personal.

Dear Pongo,

Thank you. Feel much better. Okay, now I am using the basic editor to type this message. I can't seem to use the Advanced Editor - but still feel okay about it. I am going to just look around, to get familiar with Replying and Advanced Editor.

Thanks Pongo
I remain, Sincerely
Norma Iris
