    Hello everyone.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Aruan, Nov 12, 2012.

    Hello people,


    My name is Aruan. I'm 22, Brazilian. I like movies, candlelight dinners and long walks on the beach.

    Seriously now, I'm not sure what I should write here. Since I'm not a native speaker, sometimes my English will be wrong, and I hope you'll correct me in those cases. I hope I haven't made a mistake already.

    It's a pleasure knowing you all,

    Aruan

    Hello and welcome aboard. this a a great place to interact with great writers :) I find it funny how every new member is worried about making a mistake when they post anything. dont worry. Just be sure to browse around and see what you can find before asking a question. often times you'll get a response saying to look at old posts.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Aruan!

    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.

    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.

    Worry not, Banzai, for in the moment I registered myself, I received a PM containing the whole "tips&advises" set.

    At first I was looking forward on having my works reviewed, but after reading some FAQ's posts I quickly gave up on the idea. I want to publish my stories one day, and having them put here for discussion apparently lowers my chances a lot. Nevertheless, after reading some topics spread throughout the forum, I was assured that this community has a lot to offer me, from character building to the publishing itself. And I'm also feeling like reading new stuff, so I'll gladly review other people's texts and contribute back to you all myself. At least I hope so. If people here are posting Macbeth texts, I doubt I'll be able to keep up.

    Anyway, thanks for the warm welcome,

    Aruan
