    Good day everyone!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Woolyloach, Jun 27, 2012.

    Or night, depending on where you are and when you read this!

    I learned about this forum from a friend of mine, so I decided to drop in and see what it's all about.

    During the day I'm a mild-mannered software engineer, but at night my alter ego comes out and I write, dabble in 3D art, and occasionally annoy the neighbors with my guitar playing.

    I have one self-published Kindle format book on Amazon, and am 25,000 words into my first real novel (a noir detective/fantasy hybrid). I hope I finish it before I die of old age! Then it's on to a few novellas I've been developing.

    Take it easy, and scribble on!

    Welcome aboard! The Writing Forum is a great place to read, critique, and learn :D Its also great for meeting and conversing with other writers :) I find it a nice change of pace with the ideas [since I'm typically on facebook and the most insight one gets there in high school is "today is pretty boring, maybe I'll go see a movie, who wants to come?" lol]

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Woolyloach!

    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.
