    Hi,

    Just stumbled onto this website a few days ago after thinking about trying my hand at some creative writing, looking forward to getting involved. :)

    Well I have recently finished my dissertation for my business degree and after four years, I have found myself exhausted with writing so objectively. At school I used to love writing fantasy and action, but I have not returned to creative writing since then. So now, my dissertation has been the catalyst to change this, though I am worried whether I will be any good.

    In all honesty, I believe I should read more. However, books that I have read such as the HP series, The Fellowship of the Ring, Contest, etc., have allowed me really open up my mind to many different ideas. Plus some of the glorious sights of the world can really stick in the brain.

    I'll take a gaze at some of the advice threads no doubt and try and boost my writing. I plan to try some of the writing games and perhaps an RPG before I consider writing anything substantial.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I love your user name I was wondering if it was a reference to the Roald Dahl book? I love his work - the adult stuff and the children's... such a great imagination.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Fan7asticMrFox!

    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.

    Thanks again for the welcome! With regard to WriterWoodsy my username is in reference to Roald Dahl and his work. Doesnt matter if you are a child or an adult, his books are simply brilliant.
