Hello: This is Nyota’s Heart, the hostess for this latest revision of the “Creche Thread.” Since the move, we’re just starting to see an influx of new users and with “The Force Awakening” hopefully a lot more. Here is the gathering place for pairs of veterans/oldbies and newbies/padawans to get together and share insights and provide moral and practical assistance in the rewarding, but sometimes daunting venture of writing. Please copy and fill out the form below: Name: Looking For: Eras of Interest: Favorite Characters: Genre(s): What I Will Never Write: Strengths: Weaknesses: Fun Fact(s) about Myself: __ Things to Keep In Mind • What makes an ideal master/mentor will differ from person to person. Some will want a beta, a sounding board, someone to answer questions, etc. Personalities can contrast or have much in common. • The thing to look for is based on what you feel you can bring to a partnership or conversely, get out of it, that will help the newbie grow as a writer and also as a side benefit, find a valued friend. • It might happen that partnerships will forge outside this thread through story threads and/or conversations. If this happens, let us here in the thread know so we can post in the master list and send our congratulations. • If you want to be removed from the list or added to it, PM the hostess or post in this thread. • Valuable sources of information are the in the Welcome New Users and in the stickeies at the top of the forums. • Any questions please PM me.
