"I'm a newbie lol"
I’ve never posted a thread to a newbie-sub forum, ever. I’ve never felt the need to step up and say: “I’m a newbie!”
Always thought that to be too embarrassing ([I]adj.[/I] making one feel shy, awkward or ashamed).
Or even too self-absorbed, but the fact is, that people are always mostly interested in themselves. And that’s only healthy. Well, to some extent at least.
With The Cult, I’m making an exception. Probably because this place is filled with, um, eccentric people. And that’s perfectly fine with me. I’ve got my problems, my issues with myself and people around me, and a problem I believe many us here share, a problem with writing.
My story about getting interested in Palahniuk’s work, isn’t special. It’s the usual way, happened just like with 90% of us: I saw Fight Club, loved it, later on met a family member/friend/other (read: boyfriend) who had loads of Palahniuk’s novels. So I bought one myself and that’s how it started.
I’ve read Survivor and Choke in Finnish, and now I’m reading Haunted in English. Diary and Fight Club are on the shelf waiting. I have to admit that during those maybe two weeks when I read Choke and Survivor I was overwhelmed by the writing and the stories, so I was pretty much “high” all the time. That’s what good writing does to people. That’s something that writers really should try to achieve.
That’s enough shit for one night. There's just one more thing: Hello.
