    A spark has ignited

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Tygress, Oct 26, 2012.

    Greetings, I am new to the forum and have much to share!

    My name is Caity, I'm a young artist/writer with thousands of amazing ideas just waiting to break free. I have written many stories in the last 5 years, and I'm also an artist, I draw traditionally with pencil-to-paper art, just started building skills using pencil crayons to blend my colors, and I would definitely make for a good illustrator if I kept working at the talent long enough.

    I currently have a huge fire of inspiration burning within me, the need to write is growing each day. However, I cannot think of a story worthy enough to bring to life with my mind. It's been well over a year since I wrote anything, so I'm very rusty in those parts. I have thought of several ideas, but none of them are too exciting to be the next great classic. I mostly do fanfics, stories written based on other stories that have been published, or even from movie/video game characters to make them do as I wish.

    Aside from my artistic abilities, I am a huge animal lover. I own and care for 6 snakes, 1 leopard gecko, and 2 tarantulas at the moment. Definitely not the most common of pets you'd find in an average home, but they strike me as the most powerful and misunderstood animals in this Universe. I love to talk about animals, and anything related to science, so please strike up a conversation with me if you desire, I don't mind at all! I have facebook, twitter, and skype if anyone wants to add me, please send me a PM and I'll gladly accept new friends/contacts to chat with!

    I also have a DeviantArt account if anyone wishes to take a look at my work, please search "PokeSis" in the search bar of the site. Thanks!!

    Until next time, keep your spark lit!

    ~ Caity :3

    Oops. Flint isn't fuel, it's what strikes the spark. Tinder and cordwood, perhaps? :)

    Welcome to the site.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Caity!

    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.

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