    Hello; I'm Bee Kay, and it's lovely to meet you.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Bee Kay, Apr 6, 2013.

    Ah, the thread title gave me away! I joined some time ago but never got involved, so now it's time... Let's see: I've been interested in the literary medium since probably forever, which I think many of us here can say for ourselves. Over the years, I became especially interested in working with that medium myself. I have absolutely no professional experience under my belt, and I guess would be called a fledgling, but I've been a fledgling since my adolescence. I primarily write short (and sometimes short short) stories, as well as some verse. I'm also really terrible with following up on the ideas I get, and sticking them to paper; so I'm hoping that if I can get involved here, it'll be a nice piece of motivation for me to write all the things I'd like to! After all, I'll get nowhere if I don't finish.

    Anyway, thank you for your time, and again: it's nice to meet you. Um, that is, onward to inspiration!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Bee Kay!

    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.

    With some seriousness aside.......Can you actually meet people on a computer?

    For all I know, you could be an axe murderer.

    Lizzie Borden or not, welcome. I'm new here me-self.

    Hello, you can call me Lenny.

    We here on these Writing Forums are friendly for the most part. We would love if you could enjoy your stay here. I also understand what it feels like to abandon some projects. But just keep trying and you'll be even better than you ever imagined. Being here, we all have respectful criticism, but we will be helping you improve. So, have fun, and become the best writer ever.

    Last thing, be careful who you share private info and ideas with. If you think someone will steal your idea, don't share it.
