    Another newbie :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by SubliminalPixie, Jan 30, 2013.

    Hi everyone,

    Just a quick introduction to let you know a bit about myself and get to know a few of you. I'm Cheryl, and I've been writing stories, poems, scripts, music etc for a long time now. I've come on this forum to find like minded people and get some new ideas to inspire my work and hopefully inspire others too :) And of course, it would be great to create friendships with like-minded people as well. That's enough of the formalities though, I'll leave it at that for now. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask me and I'll be glad to answer them :)

    Until then, hello everyone, nice to (potentially) meet you and I look forward to seeing some of you on the forums.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Cheryl!

    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. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter!

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

    This is a wonderful forum and what is interesting here is one can comes across a horde of writers of multiple genres and choices and indeed it can enrich our knowledge and invigorate our souls. I am gaining immensely through this forum since I can learn and share great repertoires of thoughts, feelings through or with friends coming up with their wide ranging witty thoughts and experiences.

    Writing and reading are my cup of coffee and it is something that can invigorate my mind and when I am in my gloom or in a state of lowliness it is literature that rejuvenate me.

    Welcome, Cheryl!

    Have you ever had any of your songs put to music? Or had your scripts performed? My best friend was writing a play but I don't think he's worked on it in years. I wish he would finish it... It's written in Shakespearean form and is the romance between a girl who considers herself too smart for relationships and a guy that thinks he's all that but isn't. It sounds fairly generic in that descriptions but it's quite amusing. It's witty and, dare I say, cute. It's set in modern day where the guy works in a call center (something I'm entirely too familiar with).

    Anyway, I hope the forum is everything you're hoping for and more!
