    Help?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Kiara, Aug 22, 2012.

    Hey everyone. So i just joined and i find this site very confusing. I was wondering if anyone could help me? And tell me how everything works? It would be really helpful.

    Oh and my name is Kiara, and i just write for fun. Im currently writing this very long story that im hoping (If its good enough) will get published. I read ALOT and my favourite kinds of books are mostly fantasy. And i really like roleplaying so if anyone could help me figure out this site it would be really helpfull. Thank-you :)

    Hi , welcome Kiara - the best advice I can give is - read the site information and rules which is to the right on the main page.
    A lot of people skip over reading this and post their own writing which doesn't work. The link is usually shut down or
    locked.

    Right now you can post writing questions and read and review peoples work - but you have a wait
    a bit to post your own. Browse around, read, see what everyone else is doing.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Kiara!

    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.

    Hello! Welcome to the forum! It's really not that hard to use once you get the hang of it! The FAQ is really helpful! Anyway, if you're into RPG's, theres a bunch going on right now, and most of them are pretty sweet!
