    Another Newby Who Has Just Joined The Forum

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by writingismypassion, Mar 18, 2013.

    Hello! This place looks pretty big and fun and has lots of members to interact with! Looking forward to it!

    I have been writing pretty much forever and it really is my passion, hence my username for the forum. ;) I LOVE writing fantasy, but when it comes to any specific creature, vampires are my speciality, though don't get me wrong, I still enjoy dragons and elves and other fantasy creatures, just vampires are my big dog one, so that will be a very common theme with me.

    I also enjoy roleplaying, which I see there is a category for that too. Awesome! :p Looking forward to writing with others around here.


    Should be fun I hope!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, writingismypassion!

    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.

    Usually I prefer to write novels. I've never done a short story before. Though lately I've taken up the mantel in poetry and have written 2 so far. Lol.

    Thankyou as well for the greeting and the basics Banzai!
