    Hello.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Anita Kuno, Aug 7, 2012.

    Hello, my name is Anita.

    I like poetry and personal stories. I enjoy observing the events of my life and understanding the symbolic and archetypal significance of the events.

    I am an astrologer and enjoy doing astrological research.

    I have work that has been published in newspapers and online. My current work is self-published.

    I enjoy putting my feelings into words and understanding methods and structures for assisting in this process.

    I am working to contribute useful reviews in the Writing Workshop section. If anyone reading would like me to contribute my commentary to their offered work, please contact me so that I can do my best to provide some feedback.

    I do have a question for the moderators. I am noticing that after I am logged in for a certain time, the application signs me out. I recently lost a detailed response because the application logged me out while I was composing. Does anyone have any suggestions to work with this time out? I suppose I can keep looking to see if I am logged in but I do find that approach interrupts my thought flow when I am trying to read a post and compose my thoughts in response. Thanks in advance for any suggestions about how I might address this.

    With my thanks for your time,
    Anita.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Anita!

    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.

    P.S. I'm not aware of any automatic sign out feature. Have you ticked "Remember me" on log in, and have you got cookies enabled? And how long a period are we talking?
