    Hello all...fresh meat here :P

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Quinn, Feb 25, 2013.

    Hi everyone my name is Quinn (well at least that's how I am most referred as). I am twenty-six years old and have been writing for fourteen years. I have so far completed three novels in three different genres (Chick Lit, Science Fiction and Horror). I am extremely critical of my own work hence why I haven't forwarded any of my works to publishing agencies. I write because I love writing, it's a passion and it's been my longest love (Except for the X-Files, which i have loved for nineteen years). I am generally a quiet person and don't make friends too easily I have been told because I have quite a loud personality. I am (if i modestly do say so myself) a great person to get to know, I am funny, charming, interesting and I have a lot of ideas for novels that I will probably never get around to writing. Anyway I guess that's about it feel free to message me if you need an idea or just want to talk about nothing with someone, I'm your go to girl :) Quinn x

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Quinn!

    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!

    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.

    Hi Quinn, congratulations on writing your books. Maybe you could be encouraged to release them to the world?
