    Hello.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by NeedMoreRage, Feb 20, 2012.

    I stumbled on this place thanks to Google, and since this is the first website I've seen with people who actually take writing seriously, I thought I'd join. I haven't had the pleasure to talk to people who are very serious about writing ever in my life. That's been a bit of an issue since I've been writing for the past five years. So hopefully I will begin to learn more about writing than what I have been able to from reading, reflecting, and writing.

    I have no intentions of ever being published; I'm not even sure I will ever release any of my writing anywhere. I write simply because I enjoy doing it, and I'm not out to generate money or garner compliments from it. Because of that, I doubt I'll ever post my own writing here. But I do intend to read other members' work as much as I can, and offer constructive critique if I can. I'm mostly here to see what other writers do. I've studied as much as I can about writing from reading books and researching writers, but there is only so much I can get from doing that. I want to see the processes other writers follow, what their opinions are on topics related to writing, and a lot more.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, NeedMoreRage!

    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.
