    Hello! introduction to myself of course :-)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by LooneytoonM, Sep 10, 2012.

    good day to all!

    please be patient as I have never really posted on forums before. I am completely new to writing, so hopefully this site helps me get a sound understanding of where to start. I server in the British armed forces and decided I needed a new hobby when I started reading through my book collection like a forest wild fire. So in order to keep my mind ticking over whilst deployed over seas I decided to do something creative.
    Like I said before, I am new to writing (sorry for any spelling, grammar and punctuation. we all have to start somewhere right?) and to using forums. I do like to read all types of books, but my favourite type though has got to be fantasy and anything factual to do with history. I'm a big film fan and game freak too and in brief just a general all round geek.

    hopefully that's enough for a basic introduction. hopefully I will talk to most of you around the forums anyway (when I can)

    take care all!:rolleyes:

    Welcome to Writing Forums, LooneytoonM!

    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.
