    Hello from Canada!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by ecouter11, Apr 4, 2013.

    Hi everyone,

    It's great to join -- I am very much looking forward to learning from and interacting with other members. I am sci/math oriented in my studies but I love literature and history. I consider myself pretty sensitive/emotional but I can't bring myself to write at all about anything directly linked to me or my feelings. I get a total mental block and anything I write is miserably stilted and robotic.

    I think this is unfortunate because I have a lot of thoughts floating around and I think writing about them would help put at least some of them to rest.

    Anyway, great to meet you all! :)

    Hey. From Canada too. Don't worry about your style being robotic, the more you write, the better it'll get. Judging by your name, est-ce que tu parles fran├žais aussi?

    Welcome to Writing Forums, ecouter11!

    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.
