    Back Again! :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by jrs7285, Jan 29, 2013.

    Hey there. I'm not completely new. I've been a registered member of the forums for quite a while now, but I don't think I made enough contributions to leave a lasting impression on anyone. I figured I'd introduce myself again just to give myself a new start. My name is Joshua, and writing is one of my biggest passions. I'm trying to get back into writing Fantasy fiction. The writing I've been doing for the last couple years has been mostly journaling and blogging, which I love doing; however, it's always been a dream of mine to publish novels. So, I'm hoping to reignite that passion again.

    There you have it. If you want to know anything about me, simply ask. I'm fairly open and easy to socialize with. Otherwise, I'll try to make myself better known around the forums by getting involved in what's going on around here.

    Joshua

    Welcome (back) to Writing Forums, Joshua!

    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.
