    Hey all!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by smeagol97, Mar 15, 2013.

    For many years now I've been constructing the plot and characters for a rather dark fantasy story, but when it came to actually writing it I always found myself struggling. So I decided that there has to be a way to get better at creative writing, just like with any other discipline, and I'm hoping you all can guide me through this process. Anyways, I'm looking forward to contributing to this community and becoming a better writer.

    Not sure what else to say. :D

    ("...well yes, if you're struggling then there must be something wrong indeed because above all writing should be a something pleasurable to be sustainable, like something flowing form your pen even, but only you know yourself so only you will know what you'll need to change things now..." mentioned the goblin welcoming smegol97 with the warmliest of warmly welcomes fit for only those he felt would offer him something to read in return, adding "...yes then, teatime on writersforum is most anytime I guess where there are more readers here than most elsewhere too, so come join us now, we have need of one like you here...", as the goblin then dipped his hand into his pocket to pull out full length green carpet before rolling is out in front of smegol97, saying "...red is the wrong color for a welcome isn't it, where green just says "go" now....")

    Welcome to Writing Forums, smeagol97!

    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!

    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.
