    Hello

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Daryl, Jan 22, 2012.

    hello everyone, my name is Daryl. I recently moved to SC from the virgin islands. It's been quite a culture shock i must say, especially with the temperatures at this time of year. i am adjusting well though i must say. Anyhow, i've been writing short stories from elementary school and i always loved the different worlds you could get to experience as you let your imagination run free. i am an avid reader, John Grisham, Tom Clancy, Dan Brown and Sidney Sheldon are just a few of my favorite authors. I must admit that i haven't been writing stories in years. But just last year i got bit by the writing bug and decided to give it a shot again.i have been reading a few books on writing structure and stuff like that and putting pen to paper (or should i say fingers to keyboard). So far it's been interesting just getting thoughts and ideas out and knowing that i took the first steps towards my dream;which is to write and possibly publish a few books of short stories, maybe even a novella or two. I just joined this forum to get insight from other writers and learn as much as i can and maybe share some insight even though its not a whole lot..so i look forward to reading stuff from you guys and when i do decide to posts some of my work i hope that i would be able to get feedback from you all as i only want to get better at writing.

    thank you

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Daryl!

    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.
