    Hello all

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Nightchaser, Jul 22, 2012.

    Hey.
    I stumbled over this site entirely by accident while searching for a parenting forum and thought 'this is meant to be'. I have been writing for 15 years on and off, mostly focusing on epic fantasy and erotica ... Mostly of the homoerotic persuasion. I'm hoping to find some good friends on this site with a similar love of writing, as we'll as find tools to improve my writing skills.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Nightchaser!

    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.

    Welcome, Nightchaser -
    I have to say that I really love that you write homoerotic-focused erotica and found us while searching for a parenting website. That right there would make an interesting jumping off point for a novel.

    I assume you have kids? They're my biggest barriers to, and simultaneous inspiration for, most of my writing.

    Although you can't post erotica here for review, you can post almost anything else. I look forward to your posts.

    Thank you :) I plan to post my work just not the erotic parts of it ... I have a writing group on Facebook that helps with that
