    Since we started our previous welcome thread (which was so much fun! You can read through it here: https://masterpiece.rivapomerantz.com/forum/topic/hello-my-name-is/), we’ve had TONS of new members join us here. We’d love to meet you! Please introduce yourselves and tell us a little bit about you so we can welcome you.

    I’m, um, Riva :-).

    Hey everyone!  I’ve been here a while but didn’t see the intro thread until now.  It was really nice to get to know some of  you there, and I’ll tell you a bit about myself.

    I’m Esther for the meantime.  I’m hiding BC I’m scared of people judging.  Maybe one day I won’t be, and we’ll even meet – hey Riva, wouldn’t it be cool to have a retreat eventually?

    But I’ll tell you what I can while trying not to give myself away yet.

    I just finished school and trained in Phys Ed – I’m obsessed with sports and cute kids so it’s perfect – mostly.  I spend my time teaching, talking to friends, reading, exercising, sleeping (well, a lot less now thanks to Riva) and of course writing…

    In general I like things neat and clean and am a bit (OK a lot) of a minimalist.  You can see this in my poetry, maybe I’ll post some of it soon.

    My writing style is relaxed, candid, and basically just how the words write themselves in my head.  That said, I  value rich vocab and language that tugs at the reader’s heart, and can spend a long time working on one sentence.  Sometimes I cry when I write.  It is an incredible release.

    I think I know how to write, but I’m here to take it to the next level, learn the rules, sharpen my skills, become my very best.  I want to get published because I have so much I want to get out there, to encourage, inspire, bring awareness, and yes, I need to see my name in print…I’ve mainly been in school newspapers & Twirl, Binah’s teen mag.  Which I guess is not bad for my age.

    I love sharing, connecting, getting to know people on a deep level.  So this website is beyond perfect.  I am always up for a challenge, and am totally looking forward to this one!  See you…

    hi I’m Rachel, and while all the action is at the “hi  my name is” thread, I’m a complete newbie (joined about 1 hour ago) so I’ll introduce myself here.

    I’m a mother of 7 (including a 4 month old bH) and while I was hoping to achieve many life goals during this quarantine, at this point if the kids are bathed and fed and did some sort of phone schooling I consider myself a hero.

    I took a writing class for a few months about 2 years ago and really enjoyed it.  I’ve never cultivated my creativity but in the past few years I feel like there’s a lot inside me that I’d like to get out.  I love words- reading and writing, and feel a certain thrill when the words come clearly from my mind to paper.

    I’m excited and grateful to be here and look forward to exploring my writing while meeting like-minded women.

    I was gonna lurk for a while, but I’m a sucker for contests, so I’ll post!

    My name is Esty Mendelowitz.  I live with my husband and four kids in Staten Island – just moved here three years ago after living most of my life in Boro Park, with a 5 year detour in Yerushalayaim when we were newly married.

    I never thought of myself as a writer.  I always thought writers were these artsy people who wore flowing skirts, lived in the Old City or Tzfas, played guitar at the beach while gazing at the rushing water, with a dreamy look in their eyes…

    Though I have a creative side, I’m much more practical and pragmatic!  But then a friend of mine roped me into writing an article for Hamodia years ago, interviewing some people in an industry I happened to have some contacts in, and the rest is history!  I realized there are so many genres.  Soferet, especially, opened my eyes to the many types of writing that people do. Most of my articles are interviews, which feels like cheating, because I’m basically writing what other people tell me!  Unlike some amazing fiction writers, I don’t have any characters living in my head…

    Funny how impostor syndrome can hit you at any stage.  Sometimes it’s hard for me to admit I’m a writer, even though I’ve had over 100 articles published in newspapers and magazines, Baruch Hashem! It took a while for me to be able to actually say, “I’m a writer,” without qualifiers like, “I do some writing work,” or “I’ve written some articles.”

    Anyway, so here I am.  I’ve done many articles and columns over the last 6 years or so, primarily for Hamodia and Binah, but also for other publications: The Jewish Press, Monsey View, Voice of Lakewood, and Weekly Link.  I’ve been the editorial coordinator for several supplements for Hamodia and I currently cover the Staten Island community news page in Hamodia. I also do some writing (newsletters/letters/press releases) for businesses and organizations, as well as translation from Yiddish and Hebrew to English.

    In my other life, I am an EMT and work as the camp “nurse” in a girls camp upstate in the summer, though I have no idea what this summer will bring.  Still waiting for King Cuomo’s decision on that.

    I’m pursuing a long-time dream of becoming a real nurse, so I did cut down on some writing work to have time for school.  It’s not easy being a 35-year-old in a class full of 18-year olds, but at least I have a leg up when it comes to writing reports!

    One of my greatest joys is helping new writers get published.  I feel like I’m passing on the great chessed that was done to me when my friend got me into the writing business and I do my best to guide newbies in where to submit or how to tweak their pieces to better ensure they get a chance to see their name in print.  Feel free to shoot me an email and I’ll do my best to help you too.

    Okay, that was a reeeaaally long introduction for someone who was planning to lurk for a while!  Gotta ask Reva if this counts as more than one post!

      Wow, Esty, this was an awesome post, and thanks for lurching out of Lurkland to introduce yourself! You are one cool gal :-). I dunno, ladies, what do you say? Being that Esty’s such a fascinating person and we want to see so much more of her work and thoughts, I think we should totally extort her weakness for contests by making her post DOUBLE for each point!! 🙂 lol!

    Hey, I’m Sury.

    I’ve already posted a few poems, but it took me a while to gain the courage to introduce myself. Well, here I am!

    I’m a writer in my heart… in my soul… in my dreams… in my laptop…you name it!

    Lyrics are something I specialise in (I love music, singing, rhythm). I was a lyricist for a few songs in a Jewish girls choir album that was produced in 2019 in the US, and for some organisations, fundraiser event…etc. It’s something I love to put my writing to use for, Baruch Hashem.

    I also take pleasure in expressing myself in Poetry and fiction writing. I’m actually up to my knees in a novel right now with the hope of publishing iy”H.

    Masterpiece is definitely giving me the push to do so (yay Riva!); there is an extraordinary amount of talent out there and I’m so privileged to be a part of this.

    Hi, I’m Rena – I have multiple writing skills which I’ve used until now in daily life, but less in the business world.

    Truth be told, I’m trying to edge my foot into the door but finding it very difficult – especially since I don’t have a proper resume to show. I was a stay at Mom for over 20 years, then worked at a nonprofit where any work done editing, summarizing, and translating doesn’t have my name on it nor was it part of my official job description. I do have a few published articles with my byline.

    So, where do I go from here?

    Is it worth the money to pay someone to do my resume? who would you recommend?

    Or is LinkedIn the way to go?

    Thanks so much for any productive advice!

      Rena! So wonderful to have you here! Sounds like you’re poised on the brink of an exciting new beginning, b’ezras Hashem, and of course, “Kol haschalos kashos”. We’re all here for you, that’s for sure! A good way to get answers to your questions is to find the Category that suits them best and then open a new thread to get more information. I noticed that someone had started a thread about resumes here: https://masterpiece.rivapomerantz.com/forum/topic/resume-writing/

    Hi! I’m Red Writing Hood.

    I’m so excited to be part of this community. The energy is contagious!

    Funny how I see some of yous introduced yourselves as “not much of a writer” after having your work published. At what point will you don the crown?  I, on the other hand, consider myself a writer, though still hoping one day to publish. What’s the fear of being a writer?  Why wouldn’t you call yourself a writer the minute you enjoy writing and can formulate a decent paragraph?

    I sat down to take a peek at masterpiece with a niggling voice in my head, reminding me about my various responsibilities as a wife, mother and employee. But they say you go where your heart is. My heart is pulling me to my pen – uh – keyboard (Yes! I still write with a pen. I find it easier to think.).  While I steal a moment to let you in on my life, I realize that maybe I won’t become a rusty writer again!  When have I last spoken with someone who shares my passion for writing? People are writing! Things are happening!

    It’s been a while since I’ve last treated myself to write. As a mom of three little ‘uns, I’m grateful when faces are washed and breakfast cleared away before dinner time.

    So while the Little Red Writing Hoods are out in camp (never appreciated this much), I’ll quickly take a look around here.  I’ll probably stick around to the poems and fiction… Let’s see.

    See you around!  So fun 🙂

    Red Writing Hood, welcome aboard!  Can I compliment your forum name?  Utter genius.  You absolutely deserve the title of ‘writer’ even if you haven’t been published yet.  Which you should.  I’m working on that, too.

    If you’re sticking around to fiction, I’ll join your camp.

    Hey Red Writing Hood!!

    Welcome to the club. Right now, I feel that if something I wrote gets published, then I’ll be a “real” writer. When that happens, I’ll probably think: I only published one little thing. I’m not a real writer.

    …and the story will continue.

    It’s called imposter syndrome. 🙂

    Google it. You’ll find lots of self help articles on how to get rid of it…

    Enough rambling… se ya around 🙂

    Thanks all for your warm welcome and encouraging responses!

    Fiction Fangirl and HappiWriter, I used to be the perfectionist student who gave in her writings the very last minute,  and who wrote stories that never ended – because I had grand ideas, but never knew how the story will end. Ever since that day, close to a hundred years ago, when I had to run after my writing teacher all the way down the hallway, I haven’t touched fiction again. I decided that I first need a plot with a beginning, middle and end before I invest my energies into a story. The problem with that is that I have a hard time confining myself to a plot. It feels restricting to stay in the box I built.  So I stick to birthday poems and speech contests (for my sister) and thank you notes (for bus drivers and teachers) and emails (for work mainly) and grocery lists (for my husband) and to do lists (for myself, who else does anything around here?) and mitzvah notes and Purim cards and… ok, I’ll stop here.. you get the gist.

    So what a fiction story does make? I’m pretty sure you guys would not let yourselves be boxed in to a plot. Your trick?

    Does this need a new thread? Riva, please move it where it should live?

    Esther, cool suggestion! Should have been named Read instead of Red.

    “…the perfectionist student who gave in her writings the very last minute,  and who wrote stories that never ended – because I had grand ideas, but never knew how the story will end.”

    That sounds like me! I haven’t given up on writing fiction, though. A half-finished story is still better than no story, in my opinion.

    Plus, it’s the funnest. Don’t give up so fast.

    Red Writing Hood, I’m not exactly sure what you mean by “boxed into a plot”. I’ll comment based on what I understand.

    First of all, your plot is your story. A story needs a point. If you focus on the direction you want your story to take, I believe it’ll be easier to finish it.

    Second: a plan is a roadmap, but if you feel like it’s not working — recalculate.
    I just finished writing a story for the Ami fiction contest. I’m a real planner. Before I began writing, I created this neat little outline of my story’s scenes.
    But guess what? Most of those scenes didn’t end up being included in the final product.
    I began writing and things just weren’t sitting right… I kept changing and revising until I was satisfied.
    At the end of the day, no matter how much you plan, you have to be ready to let go, and change course if necessary…

    Hi

    I’m so excited to join this site. I actually just turned 18 and was so happy when I saw that I could join!

    I’ve been writing since, well, since I’ve been in middle school I think, maybe even earlier.

    I absolutely love writing! I write mostly fiction (or historical fiction). The past few years I’ve been working on some longer works. I write short stories as well.

    I’ve only had one short story ever “published.” I know most people on this site are way older than me and have much more experience – so I hope you don’t mind that a young newbie like me is joining!

    I really want to grow in my writing, and I can’t wait to see what this site has to offer! Thanks for this opportunity to connect to other writers!

    Ahem…do we mind having a young newbie like you?  A question I find perplexing.  I happen to know someone who’s on the platform and she’s closer to the younger range of writers out there.  I think she feels mighty comfortable on this forum.  As they say, age is just a number.

    Signing off,

    Hi! I’m Shaindy and I’ve loved to write ever since I was able to hold a pen, as every available surface of every book and notebook in the house could attest.  I remember one Friday night as a seven year old I composed a Yiddish poem and my mother made sure I memorized it and after Shabbos made sure I wrote it down. To my utter embarrassment (I was very shy) she made me recite it to my grandmother who never tired of hearing it and of course told everyone she could about it (causing me to cringe).

    I consider myself truly fortunate to have had Morah Blanka Rosenfeld of Mitzvah Tree fame as my teacher. Among all the values she instilled, she ignited in me a passion for writing that only grew with each story I wrote in her class. We wrote  on stencils and mimeographed it for the whole class, which we then collated and stapled, creating special “books” which still fills my heart with excitement and love for this teacher and for writing some forty years later!

    Looking back, I realize Hashem sent more great teachers to guide and light the way especially for writing. One such a teacher was Mrs. Hindy Kviat a phenomenal writer and teacher and person.

    In high school I had a writing teacher whose critique rivaled that of an editor and most girls found it too hard to stomache. It’s hard for me to understand how I, as insecure as I was back then loved her class and my writing thrived.

    Fast forward, as a young mother with a full house of little children bli ayin hara, I took a correspondence writing course using an electric typewriter at first and graduated to a word processor. I got one piece of my writing published in Horizons magazine.

    Nowadays I mainly journal. When I discovered Masterpiece by Riva Pomerantz I was beyond thrilled! How I wished something like this existed. And by my favorite author no less!

    I’m really looking forward to learning and contributing all that is possible!

It is such a bracha that Hashem put wonderful teachers in your path. You sound like such a devoted, ardent writer–a correspondence course! Wow! I am totally kvelling at the fun fact that the Masterpiece member to introduce herself ahead of Shaindy was Meira, who wondered whether she was too young for Masterpiece, having just turned 18! When I said that I created Masterpiece for all ages and stages, I meant what I said and I said what I meant, and you ladies are amazing, one hundred percent! 🙂

      Please, please share your work with us, Shaindy!

    Hello, I’m Mindy Friedman.

    I used to teach writing. I am now a social worker. Creative expression is a very important concept to me. My need to write and my interest in being a therapist come from the same place – a desire to understand people, connect to others, express emotions, make sense of the world.

    I don’t know why I need to write. I don’t know why 50% percent of my thoughts involve characters, writing goals, and concepts I want to explore in writing. Honestly, I sometimes wish I would need to write. I don’t have time for it as I am a mother to young children bH, and my job requires emotional energy and constant training.

    I struggle with writing a lot. I don’t have time (as already mentioned). I struggle with the craft. I don’t think my prose are good. I don’t think I’ve practiced enough. I struggle with getting words on the page. I don’t complete my writing projects. I get really upset with my first drafts, but I haven’t figured out how to edit. It would be much simpler if I wouldn’t need to write.

    But I need to write. Somewhere deep in my neshama, I am a writer.

    I identify most strongly with fiction and poetry. I feel there isn’t enough quality literary content in the Jewish world. Our publications are not literary; they focus more on raising issues, features, interviews, news, business, health, ect. For this reason, I never saw myself with a future as a published magazine writer. Most of my ideas are for novels. However, I lack the time, skill, discipline to see them through (novels are really long, you know).

    What I appreciate most about this forum is being the company of other writers, people who are passionate about writing. It’s very lonely to feel like the only one.

    Thank you Riva and thanks all of you!

    Guten Erev Shabbos fellow Writing Fans!

    I’ve been snooping around here for a while, reading all your riveting pieces, supportive posts and humorous comments. I won’t give you the whole “I’ve been born with a golden pen in my hand” intro, but suffice to say that my passion for the written word has been burning in me from a tender age.

    Every writer has a favorite niche and I am no different. The place were I find my creativity pouring out in a gushing waterfall is poetry and specifically song lyrics. Sury I’m so excited to finally meet my partner in crime 😉

    I’ve published some poems already professionally and back in the good old days of sharpened pencils and fresh new notebooks, my essays graced the pages of our school’s journal. I know, not very impressive, but every world famous author’s gotta start her career somewhere….

    Riva, I’m not sure if your a dream-reader or if you “just” posses a very sensitive writer’s soul, but this awesomely inspiring community is made of the stuff of my dreams…. Which also includes cotton candy and 72% chocolate just as a side note.

    I’m looking forward to a great many back and forths with you all and as they say “A talent shared is a talent doubled!”

    Keep those pieces coming!

    Have a most beautiful weekend!

    Hi Chaya’la! Welcome!

    It’s nice that you know exactly where your niche is. Did you ever do anything with your songs, like sell or record?

    72% chocolate is my ritual. I eat 4 squares while I sip green tea. ah!

    Hi, Chaya’la – welcome aboard! And like everyone else I’m looking forward to see your waterfalls of creativity spill over Masterpiece.

    And – yay! – another lyricist! This is music to my ears 😉

    Hi Mindy!

    I’ve actually only recently composed a song for an event and the crowd’s positive feedback and demands for an encore pushed me to take this personal little hobby of mine to the next level. It feels so much more rewarding to have your sweet little hobby turn into something the big wide world can enjoy! To let you in on some behind the scenes news, I’m Iy’h launching my cute little business “My Melodies” after Yom Tov. If you or any of our writing friends in this lovely community ever need some custom songs, poems, lyrics etc, feel free to reach out!

    Looking forward to your help and input in my music venture!

    Wow! Chaya’la. Good for you! I love music… At times, the right words to the right tune can lift people higher than a thousand lectures (or therapy sessions).

    Hatzlacha!!
