    A not so literary guy wants to write his own stories :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Winzett, Apr 20, 2012.

    Hey there,

    I do not read lots of books. If you would mention your 5 favorite books, chances are that I've never read them or even heard of them. Expressing myself with words is not my greatest strength either.

    What I AM good at (well, I think so atleast) is to think and imagine good stories and scenarios. For once, I would like to use it and write a good story and I am going to need all help I can get in order to make it good.

    So I am here to learn and help out if I can and maybe in a few years I've finally completed my first novel.

    Welcome to the forum. That's the thing about humans, we can learn. So look around and start. When you feel like it, jump in. Take a look at the rules, they will help.

    Hello and welcome'

    If you have a good imagination then you are fortunate; the other stuff can be learned with practice. Good luck.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Winzett!

    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 requirments. 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.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself and Cogito) 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.

    Welcome to the forums.
    If you need help, don't hesitate to contact me. Maybe we'll even get started on a complex project and help each other out, as I'm a relatively new writer as well.

    Thanks guys!

    @Cristian: sure, maybe when we both are more experienced. Also, is that a picture of Smoker (from One Piece)? :)

    Welcome! Writing well will come with time - so don't give up and just keep writing :) I think when you're new and not as experienced, the advice my mum gave would serve you well (served me well, at least) - which is, "Who cares if you're good at it? As long as you enjoy it, do it. Practice makes perfect."

    I was 9 back then. I'm still writing now :) and still improving. So don't wait til you're "good" - just get writing :D
