    Greetings!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Abigail, May 27, 2012.

    Hello,

    My name is Abigail, or Abby from Ohio, I'm almost seventeen years old, and I am thrilled that I've found this forum! Although I'm new here, I'm not new to writing, or forums. (I actually am an administrator on another forum.) I have been in love with writing since I was a small child. I have always loved to write stories, and I hope to one day get published. To get to that point, I need all the practice and knowledge I can get. I thought this would be a good place to continue that!

    When it comes to writing, I incorporate a strange mixture of horror and romance. Those are my favorite genres to read as well. Although I write ALL the time, and I can't go for long not writing, I hardly ever finish anything. I hope to be able to someday find an idea that keeps me continuing my writing. Maybe I will find that inspiration here?

    In addition to writing, I obviously enjoy reading, as well as animals (mainly parrots), crafts (such as crocheting/knitting...I have my own Etsy shop!), horseback riding, listening to music of all kinds, and art. If you share any of my interests, you should definitely message me!

    Thanks for taking the time to read my introduction, and I can't wait to join in on the talk here. :)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Abby!

    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.
