Seeking a mentor

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Little_Fox on Sun Dec 27, 2015 11:01 pm

Hello, I'm Little Fox, and as the title suggests I'm seeking a mentor.

Specifically I'm looking for someone who would engage in a one on one rp with me, and throughout it give me constructive criticism for how to improve. I feel like sometimes my writing lacks enough descriptiveness, and that I don't quite delve deep enough into my characters thoughts and emotions. I feel my writing may be a little bland as well. I am fairly good at coming up with a starting plot, but really need to work on keeping it interesting through the duration of the rp, to keep things moving well and keep all parties interested.

I like all sorts of genre's, but lately have really been feeling a modern fantasy if that would help gauge your interest in weather or not you might be interested in being a mentor. I would also prefer for this to take place over pm's, as it is more private and I would feel a bit more comfortable and less self conscious as I go through the learning process. It's been a while since I've done this, so I will be a bit rusty.

I know it may not be the most exciting thing to do, but if anyone is interested than please let me know via PM

Thanks!

There's another user on here with the name Little Fox, but with a space instead of an underscore, so I was really confused for a minute.

PMs do seem like a fairly good option at first, but an anti-spam measure in place prevents you from sending PMs until you accumulate 10 forum posts. The Welcome Desk forum is a place to introduce yourself, and Forum Games has some long-running threads as well as a relatively quick way to get to that magic number.

I was super confused, too. "Why the hell is a moderator asking for a mentor?"

Anyway he's been a member for a year so I'm sure he has his first 10 posts out of the way.

Anyway, Fox, I've been RPing for about 8 years now and role playing for 10. I like archaic and finicky, erudite, and outdated grammar rules and breaking about verb, adjective, and speech choices for denotations and trying to pinpoint exact connotations to convey ideas as quickly and effectively as possible. I also have a lot of free time, which gets filled quite often by voluntarily tearing people's posts apart, so I'd like to say I have a lot of experience doing what you're asking for.

I'm also in the process of trying to become a mentor here (as a staff position, with the swanky blue username, although Rem didn't respond to my PM) and I'd love to have this added to my resume. All I ask in return is that you try to do the same thing, and point out improvements or share ideas where you see fit with my posts as well.
Do you feel like you're a bad writer? PM me, and let's talk about it. :)

Hello! Thank you MayContainPlagerism for your interest, I have replied to your PM.

Also...Hello Little Fox! I apologize for accidentally stealing your name, but it's a nickname I've gone by for quite a long time. Sorry for any confusion.
