    Greetings from Fort Worth, TX!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by NathanEHarvey, Nov 9, 2011.

    Just wanted to stop in and say hello! I decided to take up more of my time online by surrounding myself with writers, and found this site.
    I'm just a writer in my spare time, currently working on my first novel. I'm about half way through right now, and can't wait to get it out there.
    Even if I have to self publish, I'll be thrilled to have my friends and acquaintences get to read it and give me feedback.
    It's a zombie novel, because I figure that's a nice, easy genre to start off in. (admittedly, zombies are also my b-movie passion)
    If you want to know more about me, there's a lot to find at my website http://nathaneharvey.com/
    I look forward to learning from you!

    P.S. I'm currently fumbling around with my family in picking out a title. We decided that mostly generic is the way to go, though I will certainly be able to incorporate a title into the book later. (You know the whole, "It's like it's some sort of HOT TUB TIME MACHINE" moment) Anybody have an attention grabbing title that you don't mind sharing? I have about three options that are floating around right now; I'm trying to avoid the obvious.
    I'll probably come add a poll later and get some feedback on all of the options I end up with.
    God Bless!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Nathan!

    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.

    Hi Nathan! Fort Worth is my home town as well, though I have been stationed overseas for the past 12 years.
