    Greetings all

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Eain, Jan 16, 2013.

    I've had this account for quite a while but finally decided to make my first post. Spent the last year and a half working fulltime on what will hopefully be my first published sci-fi novel, and I will be posting bits of it on here for peer review and editing help. Looking forward to becoming part of the community :)

    Hi Eain! Glad you are ready to jump in. You will hear it on here again, I'm sure, but there are warnings all over the site about posting work that you plan on publishing later. Congratulations on finishing it though!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Eain!

    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.

    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.

    Thanks for the explanation, Banzai :) I was already wondering where the start new thread button was, haha. I'm going to jump in to the best of my ability and participate :) And Drusy, I don't plan on posting the whole book, obviously ;) I'll post tidbits that I believe best represent the roof my skill, and then see what sort of response I get there.
