    Hey everyone

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

    Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by to read this! I'm new to the site and I happened to see this so I decided to stop by to just say hi. I'm really not that great about talking about me so I'll just say I'm a farily new writer. On top of that I've only recently gotten myself into reading. I never really used to read that much until about a year ago and can honestly say I'm a big fan of fictional works. I started off with R.A Salvatore's Legend of Drizzt series and can say I'm hooked on the writer. Its also made me want to write fiction and when I found this forum I was a more than a little excited. I can honestly say I look forward to meeting new people and progressing as a writer. I'm really not sure where to start though. I really don't understand the whole concept of plot versus story line, does anyone know where I can look for help on that? :redface: I don't want to get into anything on the other threads when I don't understand what I'm getting into really. Any advice is more than appreciated and I look forward to meeting new people as well as aspiring writers. :)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Meteor!

    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.
