    Greetings, comrades! *salute*

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Christopher Goss, Mar 19, 2012.

    Hello, my name is Christopher Goss. I've been writing poetry and stories of all sorts for at least 7 years now. I've always been more of a poet than a story writer, but recently I've decided that writing a full length story might be fun. I got started writing when I overheard a few friends talking about a Sonic fanfic story. This gave me the idea of writing a Mario fanfic. Then I found poetry. My favorite form of poetry is spoken word poetry. I performed for my creative writing class several times, and I even performed for about four schools at once as well.

    But enough about the writing part. I'm a huge fan of classic music, but mostly classic rock. Some of my favorite bands are: KISS (Favorite band overall), Led Zeppelin, The Yardbirds, Bob Dylan, Queen, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Van Halen, and Ted Nugent. I also like more modern bands like Linkin Park, Muse, System Of A Down, Keane, ect.

    I live in Norfolk, VA. It's inside the USA for those who might not know. I'm 21 years old. I recently adopted a kitty cat and named him Stanley. He actually influenced the idea for a story I'm going to write soon. I love video games a lot, too. Some of my favorite series include: Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, Super Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, and a lot of others.

    Hopefully I'll be able to contribute to the site while also offering interesting things to read! I've always treated writing as a hobby, but I would really like to develop my writing skills and become a better writer. It is for this reason that I joined the site. Keep on keepin' on, my friends.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Christopher!

    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 and Cogito) 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.
