    Hello everyone! Writing to you from one of the far corners of Oklahoma.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Whiskey Jack, Jul 16, 2012.

    Hello. So I used to write quite a bit and enjoyed it very much. I was even published a few times in high school. I say that all the time, but it's really just bragging. I doubt more than my family and creative writing teacher ever read any of it, but it sounds good so I use it. I enjoy reading quite a bit and I live in my head more than out of it, and I would like to start writing again before I become too old and completely boring, and I have to say that this forum has been inspirational to say the least. Everyone here seems to really enjoy the act of writing and I've already seen evidence of people with imaginations. I thought that was over 10 years ago, so you can imagine my surprise! I don't expect to write anything profound or great or even all that good but I look forward to having people honestly review some of my stuff and I look forward to reading some of the wonderful things other people are posting. So, that's about it, I guess. Oh, my handle is the name of a comic book character I used to do in high school that was fairly popular around the area I grew up in while I was doing it (I used to xerox notebooks and hand them out and actually got a very nice response back in the mid 00's). I don't know if people post things like that here but I may try and whip up a new one if anyone is interested or if this is the appropriate place. Okay, I look forward to hearing from you guys. Thank you!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Whiskey Jack!

    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.
