Hello world of Role Play!

Original poster
I'm a new writer who has a passion for story telling, and after a little bit of writing an online story named "Temple of origina" on fictionpress, i found i had a ferocious appetite for something a little more interactive. I Love writing. I write day and night, every chance i can get. I think it's mostly because there aren't any limits. It's mostly your imagination and your use of vocabulary that you need to master, and wholla; story time.

I'm new to this website, but roleplaying through chat has been something i've been experimenting with. Every one i've played with has loved it as much as i do! This unpredictability and excitement is addicting. With a little bit of structure to help things along, I've written enough material interactively with partners to be almost novel length. there was one problem though.

None of them were writers. After a while, their interest would fade due to frustration, or we'd lose contact. When i found this site, and saw that there was an entire community of role players, I grew ecstatic!.

This is my first day, and i know practically nothing about how to function here, but i'm sure if some one were to help out they'd find that i'd be quite the engaging partner. :)
Hi there Halie, Welcome to Iwaku. In a vast sea of online role-playing sites, I am glad you stumbled upon us. Your enthusiasm is awesome and I am sure you'll love it here.

You should head over and fill out a roleplay resume. It's a good way to show other players what you are into, your likes, dislikes, interests, skills. Stuff like that. Other than that , just check out the site and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

Diana, an Admin here on the site, is helping pair people up into groups and into one on one's. It'll help you just as much as the resume will. Anyway, welcome to the site and I hope to see you around soon!
