    Hello!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Lea`Brooks, May 11, 2013.

    Hello all!

    The name is Beth, though for publishing purposes, I've chosen my middle name to go by instead. =) Ideally, I wouldn't use a last name at all.. but it looks strange as a screen name. So here I am!

    I'm working on a few novels, mostly YA fantasy. A few of the short stories brewing in my brain steer away from that category, but that's okay with me. =) A little diversity never hurt anyone, right?

    Anyway. I've been writing for a few years and have never had a good companion to bounce ideas off of. So I'm looking forward to working with all of you! So thrilled to have found a good forum where I can grow into the best writer I can be!


    Blessings,
    Lea
    (that's LEE, not LEE-uh =D)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Lea!

    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. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter! We also have a growing short story club (think book club, but with short stories!), which you can find stickied in the Book Discussion forum.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, 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.

    Hi Lea!

    I also am trying to write some YA fiction novels! I don't think mine fall into the fantasy category, but I would love to become friends. Like you, I don't have anyone to bounce my ideas and/or writing off of. I just joined the forum, so we can be newbs together. :)

    Have a great day, and it is nice to meet you!
