    Hello Members.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by October Elizabetha, Sep 3, 2012.

    Hello members of the Writing Forum.
    My name is October. Well, my stage/screen name.
    I have been writing for quite some time now and I write a lot of poems.
    I have posted my work on some other sites I use and most of the feedback was exquisite.
    Although most people don't prefer some of my writing, that still hasn't made me quit on the things that I love to do.
    Right now I am working on a novel called Beloved.
    I refuse to give out information on it until it is fully published :3
    (which I honestly hope gets published soon.)
    I only do a select genres of poems and writing.
    I, for one, use Romance, with a hint of Tragedy and Drama.
    I love using Horror mixed with a slight sliver of Comedy.
    Most of my poems are Romance, or Tragedy.
    Hence, the reason why most people are not big fans of them.
    I think this is all I have to say for now.
    I am a pretty straight forward person, and I hate to be persuaded to do things. . .>.<
    Unless you have any other questions for me, thats all I have to say.
    I hope I get to know most of you here and to post some of my best work for the members to review.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, October!

    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.
