    Greetings I am shiny and new here

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Hettyblue, Jul 3, 2012.

    Hello

    I have recently started a proper writing project that I have every intention of seeing through, this time.

    I am enjoying it so much that I need to start reigning myself in and I am excited by the opportunity here to offer critiques (hopefully constructive) for other writers work and get a reality check on my own efforts.

    That is all, I am not meant to be posting now as I am actually making dinner. Just got a bit excited.

    Cheers H

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Hettyblue!

    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, Cogito, 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.

    Just wrote a longish reply then lost it - grrr.

    Anyway - thank you for my welcome Peachalulu and Banzai. :)

    I was inspired to join today (after thinking I needed a writing forum for a few months now) by a cartoon.

    http://www.jerrah.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/someone_is_wrong_on_the_internet1.jpg

    It sums up my forum experience so far (mainly on parenting website Mumsnet) which consists mainly of being caught up in the heated but ultimately pointless/ circular arguements topics like Feminism, politics and parenting tend to create. All good fun but not particularly positive as a rule.

    I willl be off for a wander now. Cheers (again) H
