    Good day!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Iristenebris, Apr 15, 2013.

    Well, lets kick off my introduction by saying good day to you all. I'm sorry if I seem overly formal, but this is just the way I write. Anyways, I'm a fairly new writer, aside from various short ramblings and chapters I've written throughout the course of the past year or so. I'm excited to talk to other writers and get a few questions answered, and help others with their writing conundrums. However, I'm not really much for small talk, and although I do enjoy a good conversation, I tend to fade into the background in large conversations, as I like to get straight to the point. Not to say I won't be chatting with others.
    I love writing fantasys, and most of my characters ignore the stereotypes and would rather abandon their companions for their own selfish means. I don't write heavenly princes in armor saving beautiful princesses. And if I did, the Prince would dump the Princess after getting his gold and the princess would be a vain, manipulative sex-addict. What I can't write is romance, as I perfer fast-paced, sarcasm filled stories with a chock-full of character developments and shocking plot twists and cliffhangers.
    So in conclusion, I'm rather glad to meet whoever else lurks here in this maze of storyweavers.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Iristenebris!

    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! We also have a growing short story club (think book club, but with short stories!), which you can find stickied in the Book Discussion forum.

    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.

    Welcome Iristenebris. I like your philosophy about breaking character stereotypes. You sound like my kind of writer.:)
