Hey there! I'm new to the community, although I had an account made but couldn't commit the way I wanted to before, and I'm hoping with this new home I'll get a fresh start with all this new space. Any tips, corrections, and friends are much welcome and appreciated. I've always had the fancy in the area of being the Neko to someone's anything. I also found over the years that I have some other...tastes that I wasn't ashamed about, just surprised. I'm super excited to work the rust out of my writing skills. I LOVE reading, but it's like drawing for a lot of people. I see what I want to create, but the details are never as refined or expressive as I want them to be. I'm 25, which feels old in these kinds of places :(, and very open to anything people may want to try together! Will be stalking other peoples' sigs and such, as well as reading the rules of course, to start building my profile the correct and most fun way that I can.

I also go either by VK, Ky, or Kynae. Whatever people prefer!

I've found other communities to try out in the past and I've been poked at for it ._. It's tough to know the age base for some of these.

Yeah, 25 isn't old here. I'm 27 myself and I've found most people here to be either close to my age or older, and I've been around for a few years. xD

Welcome abord though.

Hi there, and welcome! Don’t say you’re old, you’ll make me feel old 😭 I’m about to be 24 soon and I’m trying to hang on to 23 as much as I can XD

Life experience and a well developed imagination are key to your developing a story. Beyond that building your vocabulary and learning good theme and form will allow you to craft your stories, develop the characters, and the scenes they play thru. I've known kids who at 18 had more experience in life than I did at 30. Reading other writers works will allow you to pick up on the style of their expression. Still you need to gain real world experience.

Ernest Hemingway once spoke of his Novella, "The Old Man and the Sea" describing how he condensed what could have been a very long and perhaps boring Novel. In his words he had seen so many fantastic things in the Caribbean that he could have shared but to what avail. He wanted to refine the story to an essence where the readers experience would allow them to follow the intrigue that he presented. Thus crafting a story where you weave the readers imaginations into the fabric of it. Your imagination, experience, knowledge, and writing skills will be your weaving loom. In Hemingway's words, "It's the knowledge that makes up the underwater part of the iceberg".

Most icebergs have 90% of their mass under the water.

That's a wonderful and very inspiring thing to say, eDJ. I've missed out on a lot of experience by switching to online games which doesn't take very much brain power when it comes to words. I recently started reading again (paper only! I refer ebooks :mad: ) and I'm hoping the combination will stick in this head of mine. It's overwhelming seeing just how talented people are...I'm really relieved, though, to be surrounded by people my age. I feel a heck of a lot better. Love to all of you guys!

You can always catch up on experience Kayne, once you've positioned yourself appropriately. By this I mean where your senses are better exposed to new ideas. Online can be a fun past time as a participant but it is rather like watching TV with a passive mind set. Gaming offers some interactive stimulation at least although the menu for it is rather pre set. By this I mean targeted to market to the largest segments of gamers in order to sell the most copies of the game.

Anyone can set a Google query such as, "writers who write story lines for online games" and gain exposure to a new world. They could become a writer of game story lines and even make money doing it. Again, it nags at the question of your experience to use to begin your writing.

There are actually games that will help you develop your writing skills now. They may help you realize where you are lacking as well.

As for erotica, there are free sites for posting your erotic stories or RP such as Literotica. Of course you can read the writing of others which will help in awakening your perception.

To develop vocabulary there are many ways and resources. Public Libraries generally have books on writing and
resources such as thesauruses where some of them are quite specialized. Even cross word puzzle books from dollar stores can help expand your vocabulary.

One of the best things you can do is to work on developing your senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch.
Keep a notebook of new things you have encountered thru your senses each day. If your cell has a voice recorder app, dictate notes into it on these same things. If you sit and people watch, you could imagine stories about them
to dictate into your cell. Just be sure to do this from afar and use discretion at all times.

If you are a bit timid about getting started and fear your writing will be inferior, you shouldn't worry. Remember the old saying, "The longest journey starts with the first step".
