    Bonjours!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by QDesjardin, Jul 31, 2012.

    This is moi, QDesjardin - an aspiring writer from Canada who's glad to find a community full of writers to connect with. I write stories, obviously - I don't specialize in any genre other than the genre of "Interesting Things", and on the occasion I write fanfics-- they're easier to have an audience with. Hopefully I will enjoy myself here. I also like coffee.

    Welcome QDesjardin! You will indeed enjoy yourself here, as it is always good to find people of similar interests to discuss the things you like.

    Also, the coffee machine is broken. But it's alright, everyone knows cool kids drink tea!:p

    Oh dear. I was hoping to make my own vanilla-brand coffee here - let's see instead if they have Eros by Mariages Frères.. it's a classy tea.

    Most certainly! How would you like it if we gathered all them lads and lasses and had a delightful tea party? I'll see to it that the invitations are sent right away! And remember, formal, not casual!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, QDesjardin!

    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.

    Ugh a coffee drinker -- although coffee ice cream is quite good. Especially with chocolate chips.
