    Hey guys

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by TheRuler, Mar 6, 2013.

    Hey, my name is TheRuler, I'm a 17-year-old boy from Finland. I don't think that writing is "a hobby" of mine, but I do enjoy doing it occasionally. I have some stories up in my head, but sometimes it's just hard to put them down to paper. I found this site by searching google with "writing forums", so I hope this is the best one :)

    Sama ongelma täällä. Ideat kuulostaa pirun hyviltä päässä mutta aika lailla murskaantuu paperilla.
    Itsekin löysin tämän foorumin google-fu:lla, kyllästyttyäni smackjeevesiin.
    Toisaalta smackjeeves ei rajaa aihealuettaan pelkkään kirjoittamiseen.

    Kirjoitatko englanniksi vai suomeksi? Luettuani niin monta novellia ja sarjakuvaa, sekä nähtyäni elokuvia englanniksi,
    suomeksi kirjoittaminen tuntuu todella epäluontevalta ja tökkivältä, jopa tälläkin hetkellä.

    ________________________________________________

    For the conveniency of others, the same in English:

    Same problem here. In my head, the ideas sound darn good, but on paper they're pretty much crushed.
    I too found this forum with a bit of google-fu, after I got bored of smackjeeves.
    On the other hand, smackjeeves doesn't limit it's range of subjects to just writing.

    Are you writing in english or finnish? After so many movies I've seen and so many novels and comics I've read in english,
    writing in finnish feels very unnatural and stiff, even now as I'm writing this.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, TheRuler!

    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.

    Up the Irons Revenant, och min svenskt broder?

    And Dreamraider, I really love writing in both languages, if I have a very special story in my mind, (something that needs a lot of work in it) I usually write it in English. But for some short stories that I can just quickly do, I use Finnish :)

    And thanks for the welcome guys, already ahead of you Banzai, rules: read, and understood

    baha, I totally just googled and found this place with a similar type of mindset. The creative writing club I'm a part of at my campus really made me want to write more and I thought this would help motivate to get more into it. Just joined more recently, too.

    Cya around the forums, welcome! ^^
