    Hello Forums people

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by JaketheNinja, Jun 12, 2012.

    Hey everyone.

    I'm quite new here, and I may post excerpts from one of my two books I'm writing at the moment. Oh, and Jake isn't my real name. That's one of my characters, and he IS a Ninja.
    I'm Richard.

    I hope you guys enjoy some excerpts, and I'll probably ask for a lot of help. I may reach a point where I get stuck, I did at one point, but I had my cousin to help me. He is a brilliant writer (unpublished, though)

    Well.......I may also start my posts with a language used in one of my books, but I will provide a translation.

    Ending message......Richard a.k.a JaketheNinja

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Richard!

    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.

    Don't wait; get stuck in! The forums have more to offer than simply the workshop, and there's a lot you can learn now.

    Hi, Richard/Jake the Ninja. My MC in my novel is also Jake, but he's not a ninja. He was actually named after my cat, although he would not be happy if he knew that ;-)

    Hello! I'm also new to the forums and in the process of finishing my first novel. Pleasure to virtually meet you! I have a Jake in my book also, he has a healer mentality. Looking forward to reading some of your excerpts. :)

    Yeah, I relly want to post some excerpts shame I have to wait.
    The name of the book is: Jake Peters and the Element Ninjas: Element Fire
    I do have another book which I've written less of, but I'll probably post the prologue of that. It will make everyone want to read more......I think.
    That book is called: 4
    But just over a week, and they'll be arriving in new threads. I hope everyone enjoys them.
