    Hello there!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by HarryBard, Mar 2, 2012.

    Hey everyone!
    Just found this forum a couple of days ago, and I've decided to register!
    I'm not necessarily a writer for now. I have just began writing a SF piece and I like how it turns out to be so far. It's excellent to create your own piece and to know that you can modify it as you wish. It does take alot of patience,time and creativity. However, I'm taking it as a way of relaxation. Also, english is not my first language, therefore I may lack words or have grammar errors in the writing. I look forward to post some of my SF piece!

    Thanks for taking your time!

    Welcome from another new member. And if English isn't you first language, that's o'k it's sometimes seems it's not the primary language of a lot of us Americans either. I enjoy writing just for the sake of writing myself. I do enjoy writing SciFi simply because I enjoy keeping the technology within the realms of reality and still make it interesting.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Harry!

    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.

    Hey Harry! Welcome to the forums!

    I love your Alan Wake avatar! I just finished playing the game for the third time, and I cannot wait for Alan Wake 2 :).

    Haha :) I've finished the Alan Wake American Nightmare story. It was quite different as it lets you explore freely around. But still amazing.

    Welcome to the forums ! I loved Alan Wake too, it was such an amazing storytelling experience. Is American Nightmare the sequel?
