    Hello, Wolves. I'm very, very delicious, but please don't eat me.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by DubiousRitmo, Jan 13, 2013.

    Dear Everyone,

    Hello.

    My name's Ritmo (pen name, of course), I'm 24, and I'm from a little village in England. I mostly write scripts (short films and graphic novels) for friends right now, but I love writing short stories too – when I get the time, that is.

    I've been writing* inside a shell for a couple of years now and thought it was about time I crawled out and started socialising with other writers. So here I am, a nude tortoise, standing in front of you (handsome people) asking for acceptance. : )

    What I'm hoping to find here are other writers who I can bond with and with whom I can exchange stories, ideas, advice and the like. Basically: I'm hoping to find writer friends (or buddies, if that's your kind of thing).

    I'm not familiar with how forums work, to be honest, so if I make a faux pas please shout at me loudly, slap me on the knuckles with a blunt object, and tell me I'm a worthless forum member. It's the only way I'll learn.

    *By writing, of course, I mean spinning around in my chair thinking about writing.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Ritmo!

    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.

    Never mind the wolves. Beware of the gretchlings. They consume not only you, but your entire existence - retroactively.

    No one knows what they look like. Or perhaps the memory of them has been eradicated as well.
