    Hi Everyone! Caliborn Here

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Caliborn, Aug 4, 2012.

    Hi! You can all call me Caliborn or Cali, whichever is fine! I've come here seeking writing help and tips for when I want to write and hopefully publish my own book, so it would be great if we could all be friends!

    I'm not new to forums, so I know the general knowledge of how they work and all that, and I'll do my best to be active and obey the rules. I think I'll really like this place, from what I've seen.

    Something to know about me is that I like spooky things. I also have an intense phobia of the dark. I'm interested in Homestuck (obvious if you're caught up with Homestuck [my name I mean]), Final Fantasy VII, Kingdom Hearts, Doctor Who, Sherlock, and Supernatural, and I like to read and write fanfiction. Uhm, I like to have friends, so don't be afraid to talk to me, please! I enjoy good conversations.

    So yeah, I think that's it! I'm hoping to have fun and learn while I'm here!

    Welcome Caliborn! I'm curious, did you take your name from The Tempest or somewhere else?

    No, I don't think I've heard of that, sorry^^ I actually took my name from a popular webcomic called Homestuck.

    EDIT: I just googled 'The Tempest', haha now I feel silly for not knowing it was Shakespeare.

    Yeah - It's just, I've seen a few people use corruptions of Shakespeare's names and thought I'd ask. :)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Caliborn!

    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.
