    Hello, CrimsonNataku here.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by CrimsonNataku, Mar 11, 2013.

    Here's my attempt to revive my writing spirit. My main interest is in novel-writing, though I frequently write short stories. I take writing very seriously, having worked with published authors and/or professors on a personal basis to improve my writing for several years. Although in recent months life complications have forced me to set it aside, I hope that I can change that. This is one of the main reasons I decided to join these forums, for both inspiration and support. I like providing support as well as getting honest, constructive feedback. I am also an experienced beta-reader, and if time permits me I am happy to oblige those who would like a fresh pair of eyes.

    I hope I can get along with all of you and work to improve our writing together.

    ("...welcome to this forum then..." replied the goblin who always liked reading stuff on-line for the fact that the author was just there with their work, adding "...well I don't know if I'll ever be inspirational to anyone now but I do try to be supportive, where you can think of me as one of your readers from now on, yet today's readers are not those passive sheep of yesterday, no, today they're on-line ever so aware that a writer whose posts make good reading is more likely to have writings to match those posts then...", and with that the goblin just drew a circle in the air to reveal a coffee table with finest filtered coffee and home-made biscuits, saying "...you'll write with us won't you, I mean more readers here on forumland than most elsewhere and we do so lavish attention upon those whom we find interesting...")

    Welcome to Writing Forums, CrimsonNataku!

    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.
