    Hi new to writing

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by juls, Mar 15, 2012.

    About me I’m 50, female, married, 2 children. Nothing to write home about but started to write 16 years ago about my long term illness, then life and my continuing illness took over. Now out of work through ill health I hope to tell the story. Bowel problems at this point people normally stop listening or change the subject.
    I have got the funniest tails to tell and some lowest times to tell. I hope I finish it, as it will help others in my situation to laugh, cry and to have hope.

    Sorry just to make you laugh, have any of you stood in a doorway of an empty shop to relieve the most excruciating itchy and sore butt. No! I did only to find three works on hands and knees behind the counter in fits of laughter when I turned around. I was 21 at the time, down hill from then heheheh.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, juls!

    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.
