    Dia Dhuit!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Kael, May 2, 2012.

    Hello! *no I am not an Irish native speaker :p*

    I do not know what to share here, but perhaps some little details on myself should help?

    There is nothing more I love to do than to write, and that includes posts, fictions, notes and basically anything! I also love Linguistics too, something I have recently gotten into thanks to a lot of friends, and Geography, another new found enjoyment.

    I am hoping to learn more from this place and improve my writing and grammar, which I often mess up. I'm sure just reading the posts here will help as well. :)

    Anyway, that's all I think. :redface:

    Welcome to the site, Kael. I've found that this is one of the best RPG/ Writing sites yet. If you want to improve your grammer and writing, I highly recommend joining one of more of the RPGs; then specifically asking for someone (like me) to edit your posts before you put them up. Just a suggestion. I hope you have a great time!

    p.s. Is that Aslan from Narnia as your photo?

    Sincerly, LTW

    Thank you kindly for the welcome, Love to Write. And I have only RP'd once and am completely and utterly new to the rules and whatnot, but I would love to give it a shot. Are there any threads with general outlines of what not to do? I only know God Moderating isn't allowed. :redface:

    And yes it is Aslan from Narnia. :)

    Kael,

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Kael!

    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 and Cogito) 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.

    ...no, I'm not native either. It's still fun to say though. Welcome to the forums!

    @Banzai:

    Thank you for the welcome, and the informative post. :) I will be sure to follow the rules, and hopefully get some reviews in. I have never made a review before though, so I might take a while to get to it. :redface:

    @Gonissa:

    I love Gaelic. Very pretty. :)

    Thank you very much for the welcome! I would have thanked you in some Native American languages I am learning, but the code doesn't seem to like this place, or vice-versa.
