    Hello All~

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Lovely Lass, Mar 1, 2013.

    Hello everyone, you can call me Lassy if you like or any other name you can come up with. I am new around here and I cannot wait to meet all the wonderful people on these writing forums. I have never been apart of a writing community, but have no fear, I have carefully read the rules. My writing is so-so and that is why I am here to not only improve and cultivate my skills, but be immersed with people who love to write! Most of my writings are developed from my bizarre dreams. So I'm not sure how I'll go about it, but I'll be keeping a log on my dreams from now on. It will be an interesting read. I love to write in detail and flood my works with tons of imagery. My niche is writing short stories (all of them unfinished XD) and I like to participate in role-plays.

    Hello Lassy!

    I also keep a dream journal. Personally, I'm hoping to learn how to lucid dream someday.

    Anyway, you've come to a great place. There are a lot of really helpful and insightful people here.

    Nice to meet you Minnick it's nice to hear someone else remembers their dreams and keeps a journal. Dreams are so intriguing they deserve to be jaunted down and recorded. Thanks for popping in and saying hello. ^^

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Lassy!

    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.
