    Hello From Australia

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by BonanzaGirl1, May 18, 2012.

    Hi There,
    I'm not exactly a new member, but in January I had to buy a new lap top and so I had to re register back here as I had forgotten my details (insert embarrased smilie lol )
    My name is Linda, and I'm from Sydney, Australia. I still love writing Bonanza. I have been writing for a few months now but I am improving all the time, so I've been told. I'm actually on the look-out for a beta, or perhaps someone who might be able to give me that little push I'm needing. I have so many plots for stories.
    Could anyone help? I know many are busy with real life, etc, but being a disabled person, writing helps me pass the many hours in the day.
    I'll keep this short, and it's great to be back. I have a lot to catch up with. Looking forward to read any responses, if any. All the best.
    Linda.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Linda!

    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.

    Aww, welcome to Writing Forums Linda! Don't worry about the intros and stuff, I've been here for almost a year and didn't get many welcomes either. It's more fun to welcome other people I think. haha

    I really hope you enjoy your time here, it's such a great place to hang out and learn. I'd love to chat with you anytime!

    Oh, and I've always wanted to go to Australia!!! I live in the plain ol' southern USA but lack any kind of twang whatsoever. ;)

    It'll be okay. We've learned to write upside down, meaning you see things the way you're used to.

    With the Olympics coming up I guess I'll assert my nationalist pride too!

    Nice to hear from you Bonanza Girl, you're in good company here. (I'm from Melbourne)

    Look forward to seeing you post :)
