    From my world to yours, Hello!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Michipanda, Jul 4, 2012.

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Michi (nick name of sorts) and I was recommended to this site by a dear fellow writer who also uses this sight. Writing has been one of my favorite pastimes since I was a wee child. It's the only place where I can do, say, or be whoever, whatever I want whenever I want. I just feel that alone is the coolest thing in the whole world. I have several completed novels (never published them.) Why? I never felt the need to. I mainly circulated them through my school and that was enough pleasure in itself. I got good, bad, and amazingly funny responses so I suppose publishing just wasn't a big item on my to do list. But now that I am older and out of college, I thought "why not?" Right? We only live once and I wouldn't mind sharing the deep depths of my world with others.

    I hope you guys will help me out and give me all your critics, opinions, and love out there. Hate too if you want. Haha. I want all of your honest thoughts. It'll help me grow and I hope to be of help to everyone else as well.

    As they say, there isn't a grander world than the aspects of the mind. :-D

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Michi!

    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.
