What Is Limebird Writers All About?

Hello you!

Welcome to the ‘About’ section of Limebird Writers. If you’ve clicked over here, you’re probably wondering just what it’s all about. Well, Limebird was created in 2011, designed with writers in mind.

The motto of Limebird is ‘Let Your Creativity Fly’, which links to the fact that everyone needs to let that creativity out. We are a team of writers from the UK, USA and SA who love to write. If you would like to find out more about each team member, then check out our Meet The Team section. Or if you are looking for something specifically, then we have a search bar on the top right of the site.

We saw a great quote by a writer called Leo Rosten which said that “The only reason for being a professional writer is that you just can’t help it”. We think this is great because that’s exactly what writing is like, you just can’t help yourself, it’s something which comes from within and we love that it’s something that anyone can do.

So, this is where Limebird comes in. If you love writing like we all do here, then you’ll appreciate that.

We have some great writers here from a wide range of backgrounds from the world of publishing and copywriting or the music and film world. So, if you’re a budding writer with lots of experience under your belt you may enjoy our daily musings, or if you’re just starting out and want somewhere to come and meet some fellow writers then Limebird is for you.

Also, don’t be afraid to ask us questions if you want to know about whether it’s worth doing a degree in English (we have a few of those between us), or even if you would like some help proofreading or need some inspiration! There are quite a few of us, so keep your eye out for who wrote what underneath the titles.

You can follow us on Twitter here – Limebird Twitter or Facebook or if you have any questions, you can contact us here.

Enjoy and we hope to hear from you soon.

  1. Thank you for the information, this looks like a good site for us aspiring writers. We can always use help proofreading and learning about publishers and classes and such.

    • Hi Neeks, thank you for your comment. That’s very kind. Even I need proofreading help daily and I write as a profession. That’s why I love writing, there’s always something to learn! I will have a better look at your site when I’m on a computer! πŸ™‚

  2. Really enjoying the site, I think I’ll be back here often. Keep up the good work!

  3. Love the site, really love the quote!

  4. Looks like a fun site! Can’t wait to poke around in the forums. Plus, I love the name!

  5. This site really looks interesting and deserves a deeper look. Definitely adding it to my rss feed. Also, thanks for liking the post on my own blog!

  6. Really like the site, will definitely be back!

  7. Hi! Stopping by to say thanks for liking my blog post and I’m so glad I did. You have a great site here. I will definitely be swinging by often!

  8. Hi, just wanted to say thank you for liking my blog post. This is all very new and exciting for me but I’ll be having a good look round your site.

  9. This blog is definately going to help me. I’m so glad to have found you! πŸ™‚

  10. Thanks for liking my post! Very gratifying now that NaNoWriMo is over and I am marching onward. I will be following this site!

  11. Beth, this is a really interesting group. I so miss being in England. We lived there in the late 80’s/early 90’s when I was in the USAF. We were in Bicester and loved our four years there. Great job on this group. I will be following and learning from you.

  12. Great site, will definitely be following it. And thanks for liking my post!

  13. This seems to be such an interesting site. It’s an honor that you’re following me. Will definitely follow back. πŸ˜€

  14. Its great to offer proofreading. No author, no matter how talented or fastidious, can proof read their own work.

  15. Thanks for stopping by the 3by3 writing method at wordpress. I think we Lime are attempting to do the same thing – encourage those individuals who want to write and letting them know it is possible to achieve their goal without falling into the same pitfalls as those who went before.

    In addition, although writing is always a solitary process, there are many ways to meet, share and exchange ideas about the process.

  22. Had no idea this site even existed until now and I think it’s fantastic! What a wonderful site!

  23. Thanks for liking my post and following me – and it’s nice to see writers talking about the importance of proof-reading and editing!

  24. This site looks great! I’m new to using the world of social media beyond keeping up with my ‘real life’ friends past and present on facebook, but I’m stunned by how many wonderful sites and blogs there are already – at the moment I feel as if I’m way back in the queue for a popular nightclub just watching while all the established writers are hustled through to the VIP section!
    They all seem to be US-based though (I’m in London) – are we completely behind in the UK or something?!

    • Hi Sally,

      Thanks for your comment and welcome to Limebird! Well we are a mainly UK based blog! πŸ™‚ 9 out of the 11 of us are in the UK and 2 are in the US!

      We are still a relatively new blog (3 months) but it’s been amazing fun so far! I hope you’ll be back soon πŸ™‚

  25. Um, well…hi. I’m Kate. I guess you could say I’m a comedy writer (I’ve got a full-scale review of the Twilight books going on over at my blog) and internet buddy William sent me over here. Great site you’ve got going, I’ll definitely be back for more.

  26. What a great idea, & started only last year. Last year, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE!! I began a blog, my blog being a first draft of a book I’m writing. I’m getting a feel from the public as I write it, and can then polish & present.

    This is a great site, I will be back. HAPPY NEW YEAR πŸ™‚

  41. This place looks great, however I do not understand what it is aiming to achieve. Why does Limebird exist? What is the goal? Why do you get out of bed in the morning and why should I care? Could you update the about page to include these things? I’m happy for this comment to be deleted, I just wanted to give feedback. Many thanks and keep up to good work πŸ™‚

    • Hi Mark,

      Thanks for you comment and we do appreciate the feedback. Well, we are a group of 20 writers offering advice and tips to writers (from beginners to professionals). We also blog about everything in the world of writing.

      I was sure it explains this in the about page, but I will definitely go and double check when I get a chance. Hopefully see you back here soon.
