    Greetings Earthlings!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by QueenSpaz, Jan 29, 2013.

    Salutations! I'm an avid reader of erotic and historical romance. I've toyed with the idea of writing my own story for a few years now, but was never did as I was afraid that I would be told I was crazy (the bad kind of crazy), or that people would think I was stupid for trying, or they wouldn't like what I would write, etc.

    Well people kept telling me I was funny, and one of my co-workers told me she likes to read my incident reports because they are always worded "so eloquently." So I figured "why not"? That and my husband was threatening to lynch my Kindle if I didn't stop buying a new book nearly every day. After a few attempts to start a story and setting it aside, I'm now about 25k words into my own romance story. I look forward to sharing ideas with you all!


    Peace and Love :love:

    Welcome to Writing Forums, QueenSpaz!

    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.
