comes a petite authour to join your lovely little forum.

Hi, I'm TimTam, I'm 17 and I've been writing for recreation since I was 6 or 7. My biggest work to date is my pantomime 'The Christmas Piece' which was performed in 2006 but I have a lot of poetry and short stories quite a few of which are on bebo.

Nowadays I'm working on writing a couple of novels (not particularly sucessfully) and a new pantomime as well as a slightly more serious play, but lets face it, writing for children is more fun.

17 is not a petite age. Welcome, I'm Andrew.

Pantomime? That's cool! You should make a tutorial about it or something. Is your stuff on Youtube, by any chance?

lol, petite refers more to my build than my age!

Youtube is a good idea, I have a recording but I've not seen it yet, and it's such a pity that one of the lead actors was 10...

A tutorial could be fun too

I've got stage fright and a knack for bad memory. It kept me away from school plays for 4 years. I think I'll be dreading the day when I have to read my books to kids.

Someone else made the recording, you mean? And told you but never showed you?

I figure if you're older than me, you're not petit. But are you petite? I don't know what happens when French words cross over into English. Is that even French? It's a French word, but it might come from another language, and I get all confused about that stuff --

-- but I'm petite too! Anyway, I'd love to see you pantomime. All this French and pantomiming is reminding me of ... Les Infants du Paradis? This French movie that depressed my mother. Yeah.

Welcome.

Hello. I'm Nyx...evidently Welcome, you'll fit in. Unless of course, if you don't worship our llamas, they will have to drown you in holy spit.



So yes welcome, feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
