[FOR NEW MEMBERS] welcome to Penana!

If you're reading this then you are probably quite new to Penana. You are the reason I'm doing this.
My name's Nor. I have been on Penana fir a few months now, but I already know my way around as I had a mentor (I'm not going to say his/her name in case they get embarrassed). Unfortunately, not everyone has a mentor.
If you want someone to guide you, assist you and be your friend here, reply to this post now.

Nor, you still have a space for someone to mentor?
I'm as lost as a kitten in the stormiest of days...
Trying to dramatize it so you take pity on me >-

Hey! I'd love a mentor! I'm a bit of a geeky goofball sometimes, but as long as the mentor doesn't mind, then I'm totally game!

Hi Stormie, I could be yours. I'm on this site quite a bit. Also if you like One Piece, I would want you to read Where You Belong by I-Don't-Like-I-Obsess. She( or he) is quite good.

A note to all newcomers: "chapters" are referred to as "issues" here on Penana in order to accommodate for writing that doesn't format with chapters "blogs, poetry, screenplays, etc.).

Hi! I'm kinda lost on this website. I know some basic stuff, except adding a cover. So, if you may, can I have a mentor. Please?
Flow
Flow2 years ago
Well... to add a cover is when you make a story it gives you an option to add one. Take the choice of upload and you can put a screen shot or your actual drawing on it.

If you already made the story then go to chick on the first chapter and in the top right corner is a little white square. Click on that and proceed to do as above.  

I hope I helped.

@RiverSong, what kind of genres do you write? We'll find someone who fits well
ViridianMind
ViridianMind2 years ago
Hey @RiverSong, welcome to the Author Mentoring Society as well as Penana if you are relatively new and haven't been greeted yet, though if I know the people on this site you probably already have. I'd be happy to mentor you if you'd like, I have a broad understanding of many different genres, I'm also a decent editor if I do say so myself. Just PM if you're interested.

@ViridianMind,  I am a Fantasy/action/adventure writer, but I dabble in other things as well. I'm not afraid to go out of my comfort Zone. Mostly, I'm a novelist, but I do short stories as well. I'm looking to become a published author, so if you can help me get there, that would be amazing. Also, I have a question about co-writing. How exactly does one join one? Do you put up a character page in the comments?

What do I need to do when I want to plot something with another  user? Do you guys have some sort of discussion thread where you can post ideas?

And does this site have a roleplay forum? Just wondering, since I LOVE roleplaying!

Hi, I'm new, and I'd really really love someone who could coach me through my writing, or through this website, and to hopefully be my friend...

That grew more depressing the more it went on...  

I'm really ambitious, but I know my stuff is rather weak, and it would be really great to have a more experienced writer toughen me up!

@Miria Klutz, I can mentor you, if you like!

Hey everyone, I'm new here , and I would really really love it if someone could mentor me. I am really passionate when it comes to writing and would accept every pearl of wisdom that comes my way, and if it comes from an experienced writer then that's even better!

@FilleEcrivé, that's good. As far as tips just be yourself and let your writing express that. My inbox is open if you've got questions or need any tips :)

@DollEyed Fae, I'm happy to mentor you, if you'd like! I'm not sure how many people come on this society anymore, but I hang around often!
2 years ago
@shnuffeluv, Thank you, a million times thank you lol! So lost on here and to be honest a bit bored. It seems as if these forums see very little action.
shnuffeluv
shnuffeluv2 years ago
@DollEyed Fae, Yeah, well, with exams coming up it's the off-season. I'd give it time, things heat up over the summer and in the fall.

@shnuffeluv, Good to hear. Man that makes me feel so old though. Been many a year since school for me lol.

shnuffeluv2 years ago
@DollEyed Fae, Haha, really? It feels like it will never end to me. Ah, well. One more year before college for me.

@shnuffeluv, Lol so glad I'm not that young anymore. It is hard work being your age. When you are my age you start to feel a bit more comfortable in your own skin lol.
