Hey guys, and welcome to the ‘blog’ page of A Mind Full Of Ink! I’m so pumped to start up a community full of like-minded bookworms. You can read a bit more about how the blog works at the ‘about the blog’ page, but here’s the run-down:
– The ‘blog’ category is where the actual blogging happens; I write about books, movies and plays I’ve read/seen recently, give tips about acing your homework assignment and other writing skills, and occasionally discuss the latest scandals (when the need to dish gossip becomes too strong). I’ll also post challenges, which will give you guys a theme or prompt that you can use to write your own story. Once everyone sends them in, I’ll publish them on the site and we can all laugh at how different (or similar) our plots turned out to be. Everyone will also get to vote on their favorite, and who knows, maybe your story will become the new Harry Potter!
– Then there’s the ‘workshop’ category, where all the stories are posted. At first I’ll release one of my pieces every two weeks, but the idea is that as this community builds up people will start sending in their own fiction, which could be anything from monologues to short stories or artwork.
– You can send in your fiction through the ‘contacts’ page. Just fill out the form, paste your piece inside the comment section, and voila! In a few weeks it’ll appear in the ‘workshop’ category along with your name and any other information you want published.
– The ‘About The Blog’ just tells you a little about me, as well as recaps this post on how the blog works.
Okay, now that that’s out of the way, I’ll tell you guys a bit about myself. My name is Elsa, I’m fourteen, and my hobby is (duh) reading and writing. Personally, my favorite things to write are poems and short stories that actually end up being the size of novellas (oops), and my favorite theme is horror, so get ready to read about a lot of character deaths. I’m also very easily scared, which means that my own stories freak me out so much that I can barely sleep at night… My other hobbies include Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, attempting to write and film terrible movies with my friends, and binge-watching Once Upon A Time. I’d also like to say that I am a terrible artist, so if you want to see any artworks on this site, I’ll need all you actually talented people to send them in:).
I think that covers most of the traditional introductory facts, but if there’s anything else you want to know about me feel free to comment. I’ve also posted a poem about me (‘on being me’) in the workshop, so don’t forget to check it out. Other than that, I have to ask: I really want this blog to work out, but the only way that can happen is if we have a really strong community. So whether you love writing or just enjoy reading fiction online, click that subscribe button and be one of the ‘founding fathers’ of A Mind Full Of Ink!
