    hi everyone

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by foxdelta, May 29, 2013.

    HI everyone my name is Sam. I really am looking forward to things i can learn about writing and coming up with ideas to write about. I am from Fox Delta Games, my small indie video game team. I hope I can find someone who can help me come up with ideas for my video game project, because I am having a real hard time coming up with one.:)

    Hi, Sam, and welcome to the forums. Please read the rules, explore the site, and participate. It's good to have you here!

    We do, however, have a rule against advertising, so don't post ads for your games here. It's also against the rules to recruit for external projects and other sites. If you want to discuss writing, and improve your own writing, great. Just don't advertise or recruit here, okay?

    hello Sam. Dot here...not knowing what genre u are talking sbout I have no story ideas for u... but please consider making your game mouse driven, Like WoW and Diablo III. I am unable to competently use the WASD keys fast enough and am therefore stuck with those two. Surely there are others as inept as I . And face it , WoW and DIII aren't exactly money losers. Would love to help with any input as far as story line etc. once u can give more info. If not, I certainly wish u all of the luck...

    Hi Dorotha.Well my team been working on this project for a year now. its going to be a tactical shooter in first person view. this game will not be a generic FPS game like Call of Duty or Battle Field, but more like SOCOm US Navy Seal, the first Ghost Recon games, the first Rainbow Six games. so far we been working on the game mechanics, and been really trying hard to come up with a scenarios or scenarios for the game. This game is gear more towards, slower paces game play where the player have to use tactics and stealth to complete the missions. you play as a US special forces unit. but with saying that I ran into many road blocks on the way with coming up with something.

    Hello Sam, Welcome to the Creative Writing Forums.

    Please read How to Use the Writing Workshop before you try to post there. Posting your own writing for people to comment on should not be among the very first things you do here anyway. It is worth taking the time to see what other people have done to improve their writing, and see if some of it applies to your writing as well. That is part of why we require members to review other members' work before posting their own for review. On the other hand, there are no restrictions, other than content and copyright rules, on showcasing your work in your member blog.

    Also, be aware that posting a piece of writing on any public site, including this one, will greatly diminish your chances of selling it for publication. Removing the writing later does not alter that fact - once posted, it is irreversibly considered published. So do not post anything more than a small excerpt of any piece you are planning to submit for publication.

    If you haven't explored the site yet, you should probably do so soon. Newcomers often gravitate to the Lounge, the Word Games, or the Writing Workshop, but there is much more to be discovered if you poke in the corners. Remember to check out our FAQ as well, and be sure to read through the forum rules, too, to avoid any misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Respect for one another is our principal mandate.

    As for the Writing Workshop, new joiners often wonder why we do things a bit differently on this site than on other writing sites. We emphasize constructive critique as a vital writing skill. Training your eye by reviewing other people's work helps you improve your own writing even before you present it for others to see. Therefore, we ask members to review other people's writing before posting work of their own. We also impose a two-week waiting period before you may post writing for critique, to give you time to become familiar with what is expected and how the site operates. The Writing Workshop forums on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work (and on that note, please only post each item for review in one Writing Workshop forum). Also, please use the same thread for all revisions and additional excerpts from the same piece of writing. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    And while you're looking around, don't forget to check out the RPG forum for improvisational fiction. Also try our Weekly Short Story Contest and Weekly Poetry Contest. They actually run more than one week apiece, but any member may enter, and all members are urged to vote for their favorites.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
