    Hello, Little World!!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by J.A.K., Jan 9, 2013.

    Hello there folks! Greetings from Georgia. My name is J.A.K. and I am a fairly new writer. I have recently found myself stricken with the uncurable thirst for writing, and I am devoting myself to my newfound craft. I read just about anything, but my two literary idols are Ray Bradbury and J.K. Rowling, in terms of style for the former and overall influence for the latter.

    I have always been enamored with the world of literature, and even as a child I would spend hours every night reading page after page of my favorite text. I have written a few short stories, and currently I am working on writing a rough copy of what I hope will one day be my first full length novel!

    I am infatuated with space and the future, as well as Pokemon (as some of you may have noted from my profile picture). I am incredibly excited to meet new writers and to be a member of this forum. I hope to find new worlds to explore and new characters to love in your stories. So once again, hello world, I am J.A.K.! I cannot wait to meet you guys.

    -J.A.K. O.U.T.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, J.A.K.!

    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.

    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.
