    Hello, and thanks for having me.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Banana Hammock, Mar 12, 2013.

    Hi there, I am thankful to be here. I've been an aspiring writer for all of about three months, though I've enjoyed creative writing on certain levels my entire life. I look forward to seeing how I fit in here, and hope you'll forgive my tendency to pontificate. :D

    My name's Rob and I live in Georgia, but have traveled all over the US and moved from Colorado. I have a keen sense of the absurd, and don't mind laughing at myself. I have lots of ideas for fiction and like writing dark fantasy/horror stuff, though I don't revel in gore.

    -Hope that introduction was okay.

    ("...so welcome to writersforum then..." replied the goblin looking forward to whatever was going now, adding "...yes, I like creative writing very much indeed, and will read whatever you post towards me now...", but that was the goblin for you, just someone who liked reading directly on forums, adding "...but enough of me, I'm here to welcome you instead...", as the goblin then smiled and stamped hard down on the old dusty red welcoming carpet turning it a fresh colour green, with the fragrance of freshly cut grass on a long summer's day, saying "...well yes, teatime is anytime, just come as you are or aren't depending, but don't forget to bring your pen human for your readers are not their elsewhere, no they're no further than in a little slot below this text today where all you have to do is write something for them as if calling them towards you now...")

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Rob!

    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.
