    Hi, everyone. :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by jane elliot, Jul 17, 2012.

    Hi, everyone!

    I think that I've known what I wanted to do with my life from the moment I learned to spell my name out on paper, and writing has, from those early moments, dominated my ambitions. I used to write all the time as a hobby, but I've recently begun to be overwhelmed with things that have necessarily become priorities. Every recent year has ended with less and less creative writing under my belt, and I really, really want to get back into the swing of things. My literary interests range across all sorts of genres and subjects, so I'm looking forward to digging around. Here's hoping, guys!

    Hi Jane!
    I know what you mean about life getting in the way. I just try to make at least a little bit of time to write SOMETHING every night. Usually I do it on my laptop before I go to sleep, that seems to be the most convenient. Even if its just a post in the rants and raves section of Craigslist about the guy that cut me off in traffic, any writing is good in my opinion!

    Thank you, thank you!

    And yup, I suppose that the best way to get something done is to do it. Woohoo!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, jane elliot!

    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.
