    welcome aboard, wd!

    i just took a quick look at 'in transit' and found it in need of significant 'repair'... let me know if you'd like me to give you some feedback on what and why...

    also, if you hope to ever see any of your writings published, don't put them up anywhere on the internet, or you won't be able to sell 'first rights' and that's all most publishes will buy... so don't put up anything more than a brief excerpt of anything you'll be submitting for publication...

    love and welcoming hugs, maia

    ("...nah sorry, I never look at any linked stuff in the poster's first post as I need to know you better now..." mentioned the goblin, without malice though, only that he preferred to see how the individual posted for two reasons, one, so that the forum wasn't cheated out of the goodies, and two, that he needed the author in the work, saying "...if you want feedback, then first you must feed...", and with that the goblin drew a circle in the air to reveal a small table with the finest filtered coffee and some home made biscuits, saying "...don't take offense then, I mean well and our coffee is most pleasurable to those who try it, just be careful not to trip over the readers here, for they are many and they are not as passive as books readers...")

    Welcome to Writing Forums, writerdue11!

    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.
