    Hello my name is Tjemo!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by tjemo, Nov 29, 2012.

    Hey guys!

    My name is Tjemo. I've read a lot of books and the works by Dan Brown are by far my favorite, currently. I like to spend my time reading anything. From magazines to books. I feel like it gives me knowledge.

    I joined this forum to learn more about the work and methods used to write. I'm curious about writing and might write a book myself.

    About my private life,
    I'm 23 years old and living in the Netherlands. I finished flight school last year and currently looking for work as Commercial Airline Pilot while stuck in a supermarket for now. Kind of a bummer but I will survive.

    I'm very excited about this forum!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Tjemo!

    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.

    Ah thanks for welcoming :) I've already read the FAQ and Rules etc. so I guess you won't have any problems with me other than my yet to be expanded English dictionary.

    I'm very excited about the contests!!
