    Hello all *bows*

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Ravigyne, Aug 1, 2007.

    I am a hopeful new writer. I love to write fantasy, though I have been known to dabble in Science Fiction on rare occasions. And on an even more rare occasion Realistic/Historical fiction. Most of my writing could be classified as "for mature readers only". Though not heavily sexual, or with heavy abuse of the human language, they can get quite graphic and intense. Though I will not say that there are no sexual themes, or even foul language, I will say that none of it is used out of context and out of a character's speech, or behavioral patterns. I very firmly believe that a character or a story cannot relate to people in this day and age without a smattering of language, sexual reference, and violence. None of my writing revolves around these things, but they are there from time to time, and only i it is absolutely necessary. That being said all I can really say is please enjoy my work, and feel free to give me pointers, as my eventual goal is to write a novel and become one of the elite among the published writers in the world.

    Welcome to the best writing forum on the web. You'll need to give two critiques in 'The Review Room' section before you can hit us with that mature content. Also, make sure you format your stories correctly, copying and pasting will clear paragraph spacing.

    Welcome to writing forums! I agree, gore and violence are difficult to avoid but they are some very easy techniques to avoid those scenes being so intensely described. It's up to you, however. Enjoy your stay and if you need help, you may ask for it.

    Hello Rav,
    I am new here too. Welcome to the forum from another newbie. I have not posted a story yet. But since I have been here perusing the site I sure have gotten a lot of good information on writing just by reading for awhile.

    Hey there! Welcome to the forums, if you have any questions then feel free to ask by either posting or you can PM me and I hope you enjoy your stay here and find what you're looking for :)

    I too tend to write "graphic" stories - I choose not to post them here at the moment, though there is no reason not to - so I understand what you're saying and the rules state:

    Swearing is allowed when used conservatively and not directed at any member.

    and

    Pieces may not contain graphic descriptions of rape or incest. Erotica writing is also not permitted.

    and

    Language and violence are permitted as long as they are not used excessively.

    I hope that helps you.

    *smiles* thanks all

    Thank you all for your support. I have posted a story already, and forgive the shortness and vagueness of it. Due to my wanting to stay within a "safty net" so to speak I left quite a bit out of the piece. If you are interested in seeing the whole piece just PM me or shoot an e-mail my way and I will accomodate you.

    Hello Ravigyne, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    If you haven't explored the site yet, You should probably do so soon. Newcomers often gravitate to the Lounge, the Word Games, or the Review Room, but there is much more to be discovered if you poke in the corners.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
