    Hello all

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by gramar2, Jun 27, 2012.

    Hello everyone. I am a person who likes to write things just for my own enjoyment. I was on a writing forum a year or so ago and having a good time writing poetry and short stories. Then I don't know what happened, can't get motivated or something anymore. I miss that part of me and don't quite know how to get it back. Hoping just being around others who write will inspire me.

    Hey there! Welcome to the forums! Unfortunately, new members don't get to post in the writing workshops until they've been a member for 14 days. (I've yet to get up to my full 14 days for I am still a new member..) But, the site is still really fun to putt around on and you can always post blogs! Check out the RPGs too, they are my favorite!

    :D -Your new writing friend, Kaylin Ann!

    Welcome to the forums. Still a new hat here myself. Hope the muses find you soon. I know how it feels when mine are missing. Not fun. Lots to read and much insight to be found here.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, gramar2!

    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.
