    Hello, writers!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Shai, Oct 22, 2012.


    Hello everyone,
    My name is slightly difficult to pronounce but you can call me "Shai" :p
    I'm not an English native speaker.
    I grew up in a region where almost everyone around wasn't interested to write, or even to read a single book other than Quran.
    In public places, you can rarely see people holding books to read. During school years, most of us weren't encouraged enough to open a book. Why? The place in which they call "library" is a joke, not a library.

    As a result, unfortunately, I hated reading, and thus, didn't have the required knowledge to write some perfect academic essay in College. I'm now suffering the consequences of not getting myself oriented to reading neither writing since childhood.

    Currently, I'm on a short vacation so I wanted to wake up and improve my writing skill by myself. I asked many people about that, including one of my professors, he suggested that I write 3 to 4 essays until I become capable of writing on medical topics. (since I'm a medical student)
    And he mentioned something called "Bibliographic essay" I googled that and tried to understand what it is and how is it structured, I'm working on an essay of that type, but I'm still kinda lost.

    I just need a help on how to begin. Any tips?
    I'm a complete newbie.
    :confused:

    Thanks,
    Shai

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Shai!

    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.
