    Greetings and Salutations

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by JT Perry, Feb 23, 2013.

    JT here. I'm a spririted creature living in Staten Island, NY. I am the result of billions of years of evolution, but don't worry it gets better. ;)

    I recently registered for school and my selected major is creative writing. The school is online but I don't think that matters in this case. I don't believe a school, whether it is campus-based or online, can teach someone who isn't a writer to be the next Shakespeare. My intentions are to improve on what I can already do and alleviate any kind of confusion on other areas of writing.

    So besides that I enjoy music, reading, photography, hiking, genealogy, baseball, and of course writing. My memory is pretty sharp - not to say I have eidetic memory but I seem to be able to remember the most obscure instances with brilliant detail. Remembering to take out the garbage is another whole world. ;)

    That being said I look forward to meeting some new people here and hope we can exchange a professional courtesy whether it is constructive criticism or applaud.

    JT

    Why be a Shakespeare? Instead, inspire future writers to be the next JT Perry.

    To quote the Bard anyway, "to thine own self be true."

    Welcome to the site, and my best to you in hoping you determine what defines the writing of JT Perry.

    Welcome, I'm brand new too. I feel like a newborn fetus just out the womb fresh and hot like a baked potato. Either way welcome.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, JT Perry!

    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!

    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.
