    A New Writer Has Appeared

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Joel Fuler, Mar 9, 2013.

    Hello WF community. I just joined the community a few minutes ago and hope to gain a lot of experience and improve on my story. My goal is to write the next comic book series like "Naruto" for example. I'm just a college freshman that is majoring in Art+Design and is looking for some great feedback on my story that I'm currently writing. I understand that I can't reveal the whole story online, but I'll drop the concept behind the story from time to time to see if people like it or if it needs to be changed.

    Is there a way so I can change my name? I misspelled my last name.

    Yes, you will have to send a Private Message to Daniel, the administrator, and wait for him to change it.

    I can answer that for you right now. The concept is fine. The concept can be anything, as long as your writing is up to the task of presenting it so the reader accepts it. And the writing can always be improved.

    So stick with your concept, with confidence. That won't be your challenge.

    Welcome to the site!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Joel!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirements. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter!

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.
