Hello hello!

Post  captain canary on Mon Sep 10, 2012 3:25 pm

I hope it's OK for me to post this here. You can always move it if it isn't, can't you?

Hi! My name is Angela and I'm working on a new Captain Scarlet fan fiction. I saw that you only have one story and I thought that maybe you'd take me on, if what I submit is good enough. Maybe you won't be interested though... do you only submit your own stories here? I know the site is very new, but there is only one story here and it looks like it belongs to the site's creators.

Well, I'll leave it up to you. I'm glad to be a part of such a good site anyway. I found it by accident on the forumotion site - I'm glad I clicked your link!

Tagged on: Oh yeah! I've had a look at the links you've already got on here, but if you didn't want me writing for you, are there other sites out there that I could write for? I've had a look at FanFiction.net but I'm not sure I'd like to post there. My work might get a little buried there, I think - it's pretty crowded, isn't it?

I'm not all that strict about where something is posted as long that it isn't hugely out of place. Welcome to the forum, by the way.

Ah, you're a fan fiction writer in the making. That's very interesting... Wink If you don't mind, I shall reserve judgement until you show me what you have. As our rules would suggest, this site is strictly of the generally suitable for all (suitable for all ages) classification. If your stories fit that criteria, I'm sure that we'll be happy to take them on. Smile Either way, I promise to be kind - I respect all fellow writers and their feelings. My email address is on my profile page.

Fanfiction.net is rather a mixed bag and I can see why you'd be unsure about submitting there - especially if you're new to writing and are not confident enough to receive criticism. I might suggest Spectrum Headquarters, but there are a lot of high-quality stories being submitted constantly and you might feel a bit out of your depth. In any case, I would suggest turning to that site if you decide not to have your stories posted here because there are a lot of seasoned beta readers on board there that can help you on your way.

Whatever you decide, I hope you enjoy the site and feel at home. Welcome aboard. By the by, would you prefer to be called Angela or Captain Canary?

Welcome aboard Angela/Captain Canary Salute!

That fic is the only one so far... I have one that's a work-in-progress for this site, another that's a work-in-progress for Spectrum Headquarters... another one that has been written but needs editing/more adding to it before I submit it to be uploaded (will, more-than-likely, be posted on this site). Not forgetting some other story ideas that I haven't got as far as being written on paper/computer screen (yet - if at all).

I will, quite happily, read any fic no matter what the quality or how long it is. So you know you have at least one reader/fan on this site Wink

Nice to meet you all! Everyone here seems friendly enough... Thanks for the welcome! Smile

Crikey Mads, you've got a lot of stories on the go! That's impressive!

Sorry about double-posting, Captain Burgundy. I'll try to remember to edit my post instead of making a new one.

I'm only actually writing one at the moment, the others are on hold Smile

I've tried writing more than one at a time before, but it didn't quite work out Neutral

I've got loads of half-finished stories but I don't know how to finish them just yet. I guess I get so far and then get cold feet, kind of.
