    Hi all

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Zerdarim, Nov 18, 2011.

    Hello,

    for some time I have had desire to start writing something again, but something always appeared. Now my computer is useless for playing MMO's, so I can try this again. I simply starter looking for a forum about writing and end up here. What I could say, I have been writing with my bro for a decade or so, but I never have finished longer story and want to fix that problem. I think my idea base is large enough, but something is lacking that I just can't concentrate on one thing long enough.

    English is not my native language so my grammar may be not so good, but I try my best to cut all major mistakes from my texts. There is not very good finnish writing communities so I thought it would be better to look for english speaking one.

    I like to read and write mostly fantasy based stories. Same goes for games I play, all are fantasy based or at least close to it. I'm looking forward to meet you all and finally complete my dream of writing longer story.

    See you around.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Zerdarim!

    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 and Cogito) 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.
