Hey! I'm a writer. Just for fun!
« on: August 07, 2022, 04:08:49 PM »
Hey!
I'm Dan and I'm writing for a year now. It's just for fun, not like it's my job or anything(yet... I hope...)
I have a lot of stories and I would love to work with an artist or another writer, just for fun!
Yeah.. I guess, that's it :3

Please, write if you would like to do something like this as well!

If someone has a very basic draft of a story and like.. I don't know, wants to draw it in a manga but can't write the whole thing, I'm in to this type of thing as well.
Literally anything that connects to writing.

Just a little about myself.. Uhm...

I like reading light novels, mangas (but I haven't read too much of them..) and writing of course.
Also love watching animes. Just a few favourites:

Tensei *censored*ara slime datta ken
Demon slayer
Jujutsu kaisen
86

And many others

I also like gaming, but I don't play too much...

And sorry for grammar, I'm actually hungarian, so... I don't speak perfect english
But I write in English

I'm not professional at all, and this would help me a lot in many ways. So... I hope someone's into this! :D

welcome aboard!
except for a lucky/skilled few who can make art/writing their source of income, most of us are in the same boat, hobbyists with big dreams :D
such as myself :P I'm a writer/artist combo nowadays, hoping to make it big....someday :P

what sort of genres are you into writing about?
any current projects you'd like to share? you can make a specific topic in the writing board if you'd like to post your story and get feedback on it!
see you around :D

Hello!

Well, I want to share my stories in the future.
Maybe I'm weird... I don't know.. But I have a lot of stories, with every little detail, but... They are in my head...
There is one story that I'm writing now, and it isn't sone either... At all.. So that's a problem *idk, sweaty smile*
The problem is that the story I'm writing right now is the one I started as my first one. A lot of it was done, but I looked it back, and now, I'm changing the whole thing I wrote down for the fourth.. Fifth time.. I don't know anymore. But this is the one I think is perfect, so I hope I can finish and share it soon.
So, it's a bit complicated.. But thanks!

About the genre...
I can't really pick.. I don't like nonfiction... I mean.. I can't write in that genre.
I'm trying a lot of different genres, so I can find out what I'm good at.. I guess.. I hope.. I pray *literally having no confidence*

Oh, but there is one thing I REALLY LOVE: twists

Huge twists

There are dozens of us!!
I think a lot of writers or artists start out like that with seeds of a story, even fully planned out scenes they want to write, but not yet put anything to paper.
If you're making progress on a project then that's something even if it's not completed. But getting something to completion is definitely a difficult task.
Sometimes you have to know when to stop editing a project and call it done. Especially with one's early works, the experience you gain while writing it often means you look back on it with a more skilled eye, which can often lead to rewriting it, all the time gaining skill, which means you spot even more mistakes. Revision hell I call it :P
I use throwaway stories for practice so that I don't have to keep revising the same story over and over again, I practice on new ones each time and this also gives me varied practice in different genres and settings.

Welcome to MangaRaiders Dan!

Sharing our stories (even the incomplete ones), gives us greater insight into them! Getting feedback and giving it to other writers helps us see our own works in a different light, which leads to improvement. No writer has ever become great in a bubble by themselves. You have to let others in eventually, even if it's scary to do so.

I look forward to when you post some of your work!

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF
