    Hello thar internet people

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by BlankLink, Mar 5, 2012.

    Hello, hello.
    First off I'd like it to be known that I only pretend to be a writer. While I'd like to be, I really need to get some critisism from anonymous folks who don't care to spare my feelings and will share their true thoughts for better or for worse. Still, I am human, and while we may not know each other some courtesy is appreciated.
    I'm here because your rpg section interests me and I may bring a few friends with me to start up a story book. I find collaborative efforts on stories most intriguing. Escapism is a great thing, and I was surprised to see so many other writing sites not have a spot for this particular niche. For people who are like myself its the main reason writing brings me joy.
    Anyways, I am here. Be gentle. I'll try not to rape your eyes with poor punctuation. And, always, thanks for reading.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, BlankLink!

    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 and Cogito) 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.

    You pretend to be a writer? The only way I can see you doing that is putting pen to paper and nothing coming out. Try pressing a little harder or get a different pen. Any way welcome to the forum. I think there are few humans here so you should feel right at home.

    Welcome!

    And I agree 100 percent with what Superpsycho said. The only way to be a writer is to actually write. Don't worry about being good enough, because the only way to get better is to write actively.

    I take it threads marked in red are topics to which I cannot reply?

    If there are topics you can't reply to you won't have a reply or post button. If you talking about pink icons look at the legend bottom left. You'll find a lot of good info in the rules and faq.
