AJ Adelman, 21, Manhasset, New York. I joined Writing.Com (WdC) in November of 2002 and havent regretted my decision even once during these 18 years. I was like so many others who were born in the 1940s, I grew up during the time that TV was growing in popularity and was vigorously seeking writers for the weekly programs, while both radio and the book publishing industry were very profitable for those lucky enough to break into the business. Well, my dreams of being a popular novelist never really materialized, but I never lost the desire to become a writer. I largely taught myself to study the output of those who attained success and I pushed through the million words that I had to wrote before I could even begin to call myself a writer. I wasnt very successful then and wrote short stories and a novel... because I had to. After all those years, I found Writing.Com and joined their website. WdC is a friendly place where you can find a niche among writers of the same skill-level as yourself and meet others who have been working hard on their skills and are reaping some rewards for it. And thats what WdC is really all about, writers helping writers! Old writers helping New writers, after writing a poem or story or novel, you can get it read and critiqued, giving you the opinions of others as a guide for improvement. WdC had many groups to join, such as Superpower Reviewers Group, contests like Weird Tales Contest or SCREAMS, a daily contest in the Horror genre, or you can enroll in writing classes and learn (or re-learn) how to write! If you have, or ever had, that overpowering, restless drive to write, I strongly believe that yshoujoin Writing.Com, where you will find an atmosphere of encouragement. You can join with a Free Membership or choose from four paid memberships, Check out WdC and, though Im not a betting man, I think its in your Destiny to become the newest member in this unique website of friendly and creative people. When you join, make sure that you tell them that storyteller [retired] sent you!
