    Hello!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Cherry Cherry, Jul 15, 2012.

    Salutations fell writers, poets, and members,
    My name is Brittany. Also known as Cherry Cherry (a random nickname that I've accumulated over the years of school. If that isn't what you wish to call me then you could call me Karin something that most gaming forums know me as when I write video game news for them on their homepages. (I could link you to some of them if you'd like to see some examples of my works....) A little bit about me...? Well, I like to listen to music while I work on something. Some of my favorite songs are by Train, and Neon Hitch. The main music that I listen to is Classical or whatever it in my mood. I love to watch television as well. Some of my favorites are Reaper, and The River. I adore horror movies and Zombies so that means I've very good in the horror genre of writing. I used to write poetry when I was younger, a teacher-- friend of mine thought I needed an outlet for all my angst and said that writing would make me feel better. Sure enough, it was! I haven't stopped writing poetry since then.

    Well that pretty much sums me up in a nutshell for you guys :D

    Cant wait for you all to read my work.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Brittany!

    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, Cogito, Lemex and Dante Dases) 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.

    Thank you so much for explaining that to me, Banzai.
    When I get back from doing some random family shenanigans I'll certainly have to catch up on all of that.
