    An unremarkable introduction of greeting and well wishes

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by sabayn, Jul 12, 2012.

    Hi all. Sabayn here, I use the same username everywhere so you might know me. Anyway, I am one those people with a greatest 'book' never wrote. I am trying to get away from that and actually write something beyond poetry length. I do write a few poems.

    I am still in college. I am finishing my BS in Psychology with a double minor in Art and Sociology. I am working toward getting to grad school for counseling. I do enjoy writing and have taken several classes on writing for various formats, like screen/stage writing. I am a person who enjoys exploring the absurd, odd and strange perceptions. I like to take risks with my creative art, as that is when we truly grow as artists. It isn't something that came naturally to me, but I have opened myself to creativity.

    I read the rules of the forum and I am looking forward to reading other's work, and offering my advice, and also taking criticism in stride and using to grow my stories. I am also not one to post pointless things just to get my post count up.

    Anyway I look forward to interacting with the community at large and hope I can help it be the best,
    Sabayn

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Sabayn!

    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, 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.
