    Hello~

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Vervain, Apr 20, 2012.

    Hello everyone~. I am the shimmering Vervain~.

    Now, I feel I should say that I'm not much of a writer myself. I'm actually here on behalf of my boyfriend, who is a writing type. He's in the process of writing his first novel, which I'm helping to edit and following that will be helping to pitch and market. I do draw/write comics though, which, come to think of it, might count as writing in some sense.

    But sadly, I just don't have the patience to sit down and write a novel~. Kudos to all who have managed this.

    Uhm, anyway, I've joined here as part of the process in helping see his novel through to completion. Hopefully he'll want to join too, but we'll see how that goes. There's a lot of helpful threads around, so I feel that joining here is a good idea already.

    I could go on and on about myself, but that would just be pretentious and egotistical~. I'll end my intro here~.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Vervain!

    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.
