Hello, the name's Greg Arashi. I'm a white fox with stories stuck inside of my head. I daydream my stories a lot but for some reason I can't get my stories on writing. I'm hoping I can improve on my grammar and my writing. Other than that, I'm hoping to finally get my stories on here at least and maybe make some friends too. =3

Yayfox! ^.^

If a story is great enough, it can survive a poor telling.  If a story sucks, no amount of prosodic perfection, grammatical goodness, and syntactic sugar will make it good.

I think most stories and writing fall somewhere in the middle.. but it never hurts to have both.

Hi, Greg, and welcome. Sasya is right, of course.

I'll just mention another important element. In order to write well, you have to be well-read. The more good examples of writing you read, the more you can absorb the structures and elements that make them good.

I often seem to encounter folks (mostly youngish) who want to be writers, but they haven't read much except for comic books, manga, and porn. It takes more than that. All those classics and "great" books they talk about in school are just that, examples of good writing that provide a model for our own work.

We can help you with specific questions, and offer guidance for samples of your writing, but making it all work together is a product of experience and exposure and those have to come from you.

You'll find a small but energetic group here, and I encourage you to join us in the "Barrag" thread (under the fun and games section) where we talk about anything and everything.

Welcome to the red ink realm, Greg!

I agree with Altivo's point... Which means someday I need to get off my furry backside and start reading again... -_-

Thanks for joining the forums.

I've been stuck sitting on my own tail too much as well. Read, write, reflect repeat...
