PostSubject: Is it normal to be shy?   March 17th 2009, 12:15 am

Hi, I'm Hadhafang. Yes, like the sword from LOTR.

Well, I really don't know what to say. I'm sixteen and I live in Michigan, USA. It's been my dream for a very long time now to travel to the Maldive Islands. I'm South Asian, Muslim, and I speak a few languages...

I love photography, and I have big plans to learn and better myself. I'm still kind of an amateur right now. I love science, really, I do. It invigorates me so much. Sometimes more than literature [gasp]! It's been my dream since I was a kid to be a scientist. I hope to get a degree in Biochemistry one day, and do research.

As for writing... well, my writing is very sporadic. Unfortunately I am not talented enough yet to be able to spout wonderful-ness whenever I want to. I can only write when I have a million and one things going on in my head and my emotions are overloaded. But I'm told that's the best kind of writing? Very Happy

Anyway, I really hope to meet new people, I love forums and I haven't joined one in a few years so bear with me while I get my wits back. <3

Thanks!

Hello Hadhafang, and welcome to the WD Smile

I am JB, this forums administrator, and if you have any question either myself or the moderators (Annie, Apolla Savre, E.C. Dahlia, xXTwilightGrlXx) would be happy to answer or help you out in whatever way we can. Please make sure you fully read and fully understand the rules, which are located in the first section of the forum in the first thread.

Lord of the Rings is awesome Razz And believe me; we are all at the mercy of our own muses, respectively. Which often comes when we can't actually write (Rolling Eyes of course).

I hope that you enjoy it here and happy writing and posting!

JB Like a Star @ heaven

Hey and welcome! I'm glad you decided to speak up! So often we get members that never post.
I'm Novel, by the way -- resident kook (one of them, anyway) and a self-proclaimed dork.

Glad to have you!

Hello Hadhafang! It's lovely to see you here!

I was wondering when some new members were gonna post! Novel is right! It happens to often! I think we scare them away!

Science? *runs* Biochemistry huh? Sounds fancy!

Don't worry! You'll soon be creating literary diamonds!

Ray: Well, now. It appears that I am expected to introduce myself.
Me: That'd be correct.
Ray: Fine. I, dear Hadhafang, am Ray, sometimes known as Cephas. I am one of Novel's characters from her book The Family Secret -- the antagonist. Although I fail to see why I am cast as the villain.
Me: Do you really want to get into that now? You kill people!
Ray: You kill off characters and laugh about it.
Me: ...
Ray: That's what I thought. Shut up and let me finish introducing myself.
Me: No, let me. Ray's a bad guy, stay away from him. We've already lost JL, don't let us lose you, too! Stay away!
Ray: If I didn't live in your head, I'd leave. Just so you know.
Me: *Hugs Ray* I DIDN'T MEAN IT! DON'T LEAVE!
Ray: So you really don't hate me. I knew it!
Me: *mutters* NoIdon'thateyou.
Ray: A-ha! I knew it!

Novel, I really think you are a genius and I know how you feel right now. Internal conflicts are much nicer when on paper and not raging inside your head. Wink


Hello Ray, nice to finally meet you. I must say, I've always loved the antagonist more than the protagonist, so no worries, right now you're on my 'good' list! Smile

Me: Other than that, it's a good day today, innit?
Ray: Would it really kill you to go an hour without insulting me?
Me: Yep. It would. But you know I love ya. I love all my characters. Most of the time. Wink

Characters are like relatives. Can't live with or without them. Just have to put up with them. And love them, [most of the time]

Yay! I really enjoy talking with you [and your characters] so far. Smile Being friends with writers is always a mercy. This is how it usually goes with my other friends:

Me: *sob*
Friends: What's wrong with you?
Me: I hit a BLOCK. Sad
Friends: ... right... uh, we're going out to lunch... you can join us if your car wasn't damaged too badly from the hit...
Me: *thinking* Hit my car...? Question

Aha! Ditto, ditto, ditto! The only other person around here that knows what I'm talking about is my English teacher. And he's my archenemy on bad days and my rival on good days. Even on perfect days I wouldn't sit down with him and talk shop. No, no, no. That's why the Draft is so amazing. Wink

Astra: Ugh. I can't stand your English teacher.
Me: Join the club.
Tammy: There's a club? Do we get hats?
Me: Nope, but here's a button.
Tammy: Whee! Razz
Me: You'll have to excuse her. She's a bit neurotic.
Ari: That's my twin for you...
Astra: At least you get along with your twin all the time. Mine gets on my nerves.
Ari: I don't get along with her all the time.
Me: Off topic, people. Off topic.

Oy. My whole life is dedicated to my characters. I think they lead bigger lives than I do -- I live in my head, and they actually do stuff! Hahahaha. Laughing

Ari, you and Tammy are twins or you and Astra?

Sorry Novel, I'm a little slow when it comes to names... Smile
I will get them all though! Before my hundredth post!
