    Hello WritingForums!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Lischo Pine, Jun 29, 2012.

    Hello to all of you! Although I have read much more than I have written (and with both of these being measured in modest quantities), I've recently had the urge to begin writing a story of unknown length this summer. I hope I can help give ideas to other users and maybe glean some advice for my own project! Other than writing ideas, I also look forward to discussing published literature with other members. This looks like a welcoming community, and I'm already glad I found it.

    Hello and Welcome. This is a lovely community; by which I mean the people are great, the talent is flourishing, and only positivity is spread :) I hope you enjoy reading and critiquing because you will get a lot of opportunity for that. This is partly due to the fact that its all you really can do for your first 2 weeks-- well that and as questions. You can get some really great answers too, just be sure to give some great answers and most of us will call it a faire trade ;) Enjoy the new community and I look forward to working with you, buddy :)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Lischo Pine!

    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, 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.

    Thank you everyone for the welcome! I can see this is a community that gets its users to focus on helping each other just as much as helping themselves. I haven't had much experience reviewing writing pieces yet, but I'll try to contribute with what I can. I'm eager to read (and more than that, constructively critique) your pieces!
