    Cold and rainy Sunday afternoon...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by VinsanityOrElse, Mar 10, 2013.

    Hi'ya strangers! I've been a short story writer for as long as I can remember. However, I'd like to transition into full length novels. I've taken a bit of a break from "mainstream" stories, so I'm working my way back into it. I look forward to learning as much as I can from all of you. Thanks!

    Hi Vin, Welcome to the group! -
    I was the opposite when I came here - strictly into novel writing and then I started doing short stories for fun and practise and mainly
    to brush up my tone. I'm sure you'll make out good. Everyone here is very helpful and friendly.

    Hi there, welcome to the site. It may be a cold and rainy afternoon in your part of the woods, but it's been snow, hailstones and icy cold winds over here. At the moment I'm snuggled up in bed with the central heating turned up and I've just switched the electric blanket off. Night! Night!

    (and with that the goblin appeared, looked over the commendable posts, and just proposed being mum now "...yes, allow me to play mum then human...", as he dipped his hand into his pocket to pull out a carpet of green grass for as far as the eye could see with an array of goodies such as some finest filtered coffee and homemade biscuits and the like all set upon a coffee table on a warmest of welcoming sunny afternoons, "...there you go then, can't say that writersforum ever skimps on hospitality here...", before handing a cup to VinsanityOrElse now, adding "...now, you'll write with us won't you, I mean there's more readers on forumland itself than most elsewhere today and they do so lavish attention upon those whom they find interesting, though perhaps the real question today remained how does one adapt one's pen for a forum readership...", whereupon the goblin fell silent awhile hoping he had made another friend now)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, VinsanityOrElse!

    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.
