    Action/Thriller Writer

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by icmasticc, Dec 19, 2011.

    Obviously I'm new here as this is my first post, but I have lurked here before in the past lol. I'm an aspiring action/thriller author and am currently at work on my first novel. I'm not sure if there is a specific way introductions are done here but I like giving statistics lol. I'm six chapters deep at a little over 24,500. I have 40 pages so far. I'm in the very beginning but progress is steady so I'm hopeful I'll be finished sometime in the first quarter of next year. I've always had an interest in authoring at least one book in my lifetime but I'm open to a continuing series if people were to really like my first attempt into the world of novelization.

    Anyway, I'll definitely be posting around. I was contemplating putting up the first page of my novel in the appropriate section but, as anybody else would be, I'm worried about giving ideas away and what not, if you get my drift. Not to say anybody here would do that. I'm just the cautious type lol. I probably will write up some works just for this board however, so everybody can get a taste of my style. As I said, I'm an aspiring action/thriller author. So basically, my book consists of fistfights, gunfights, suspense, etc. At the same time though, I personally believe a top quality book would have a very intriguing plot with well-developed characters alongside the action and, sometimes, implausible set pieces.

    That's all I've got to say for an intro. The boards look really nice though lol.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, icmasticc!

    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.
