    Hello~

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by BlizzardHarlequin, Mar 12, 2012.

    Hey everyone!~

    I'm Niall, I'm 14 and I come from the southeast of Ireland.

    I've always enjoyed creative writing since I was about five years old due to my imagination.

    So I've decided to come onto this website and see what other people out there have to offer.~

    I especially like horror or fantasy writings.

    So I hope I get along with all of you people out here.~

    Welcome :)
    Sounds like you'd have some interesting reads if you have been doing this since 5yrs.
    Read the rules and guidelines and hop to it! I'd really like to see what sort of things you've written, since i also enjoy those genres.
    You need 20 posts, 2 GOOD critiques in the workshop, and to be a member for 14 days, so get on it so you can post one of your works!

    Have fun while you do it too :p

    Welcome, Niall! Those are two of my absolute favourite genres. I can't wait to see what you have to contribute!

    Thank you both for taking the time to read my introductory post.~

    And it's great to see you both interested in my favorite genres.

    (P.S. : Is your location a reference to the Rareware Banjo and Kazooie franchise? If it is, good on you. :D )

    Welcome to Writing Forums, BlizzardHarlequin!

    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.
