    Hello!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by jslvtr, Nov 26, 2012.

    Hi! I'm new here...

    I'm Jose from Spain. Currently living in Scotland, UK.
    To be honest, I've always loved writing, but never felt able to write. Now that I'm living in the UK, reading books in English and practicing it all day, I feel somewhat more able. I wanted to start writing, see what comes up, and maybe feel proud!

    Hopefully I will find the help I need, and will be able to help others once I reach an appropriate level. However, I do know that the focus of this forum is to give help more so than to receive it, so we'll see how it goes!

    Thank you guys, I'll see you around!

    Best regards

    Hi and welcome. Jump in and start writing. I hope you enjoy writing words as much as you enjoy reading them.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Jose!

    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 requirements. 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.

    that's far from the truth, imo... you can see that by the number of members who ask for help and how often they do so...

    welcome!

    love and hugs, maia
