    Another dreaded noob

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by runningfree, Oct 23, 2012.

    My name is Aubrey and I'm a procrastinator. :p

    Besides that, I've started spreading my wings in writing over the past few years. For the longest time, I refused to think I had any writing ability but I'm breaking free of that and finding a new world wide open for me.
    I prefer poetry and short stories but I'd like to do some more novel writing. My big dream one day is to write and illustrate my own novel.

    Outside of writing, I'm a self-taught artist. I love wildlife and florals but I do some fan art and other portraits on occasion. Here's my website - http://www.aubreycampbell.weebly.com

    I'm also a sophomore in college. I'm currently testing out which means I get to adjust my schedule as I need to and I can focus on my writing and art, my real interests.

    Hummm....I'm sure there's more but I shall bore you no longer. Can't wait to meet new writers!

    A fellow procrasturb--I mean--procrastinator!

    Welcome to the forums, runningfree!

    That is one absurdly beautiful portrait of Galadriel in your gallery, by the way. ;)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Aubrey!

    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.

    Thank you so much for the welcome! (and the compliments on my artwork :-D )

    I'm liking the structure here already. I have a feeling this is EXACTLY what my writing needs to get into shape. :)

    Hey welcome Audrey - oh and don't worry about procrastinating, I think that just goes with the territory of writing. At least for
    me. Blank screen = terrifying. *grin*

    Welcome to the site, Aubrey. I am also new to the site as well. I'm sure your writing is as equally creative as your art gallery. My favorite is the one with the ant and the grass because of the contrast and simplicity. I suppose you don't have to worry about being a procrastinator. It doesn't seem like there are any deadlines here. At any rate, welcome.
