    Hi :) from Houda

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Houda, May 22, 2012.

    Hello :)

    my names Houman but I go by the name of Houda on the Internet, hmm what to say well I'm currently writing a story and thought id see if I could find a forum for writers and well you know with Google and all it wasn't exactly a demanding task. I wasn't sure which one to join but this one looked nice and just happened to be the first result. So that settles how I got here but why am I here? that is a good question the answer to which will be revealed in due time (I actually don't know but I thought a forum might help develop my writing ability but I don't sound so cool if I say that do I?). Ok so we know how and why I'm here but where am I from? (ok maybe I'm starting to ramble but oh well) I'm from Melbourne Australia, not sure if anyone else is from around here but its nice to meet you all (even though we haven't really met since I haven't talked to anyone yet?) anyway's I'm really starting to ramble now aren't I? I enjoy reading (next on the list is City of Lost Soul) and spend a lot of time on the Internet, currently in year 12 (in America that would be what? the final year of seniors or something?) which limits my time for everything else with the studying and all etc.. Hmm I think that about does it, I'm a Baha'i which wasn't on the list of all the worlds religions so I picked other oh and I don't like seeing red lines when I'm typing so it always bugs me when I see it under my name, always add my name to the dictionary :) unless I'm in a hurry in which case all the red lines could plan to destroy the earth and I wouldn't care less. But yeah Hi all :)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Houda!

    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.

    Hi Houda, welcome to the forums! I hope you enjoy your time here, it's such a great place to hang out and learn! And, don't worry about rambling, I do that too...;)

    I've always wanted to go to Australia! I live in the plain ol' southern USA, but sadly, lack any kind of accent. If you ever want to chat just let me know, I love talking with other writers. :)
