    Greetings, everyone! :D

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Tricky_Fox, May 12, 2013.

    I've been writing in Russian for a while and one of my friends challenged me to write something in English... I was drunk and I approved the challenge, so here I am XD.

    I don't know really, where to post anything on this forum yet, though. It will be a novel (prologue and 1st chapter are both already ready), so if you could give me a tip - would be glad to follow it :).

    If you have any questions (like, how come you are Russian and have such decent English :D) - would be glad to respond ;).

    Thank you for reading and greetings to everyone, again :D.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Tricky_Fox!

    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.

    Oh, thank you, will keep that in mind :). Looking currently for other portals on the web also, though. Hopefully, will pick yours among others, but can't really say that by now :-D.

    And, Banzai, about those constructive reviews... If only about plot, characters etc. I'm on the lowest bottom of grammar.

    Here! Here! Never back away from a challenge. Damn near impossible drunk!

    Sorry though.....I only get drunk in English. My words are slurred but by God! One bottle of wine and my keys are smoking, 30-35wpw:)

    So are you a Russian? Communist? Double agent? Hmmm.....Do double agents double space?

    Cheers!
