    Hi

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Cosmic Latte, Jan 16, 2012.

    Hello Everyone,

    Now that the "Hello" is over with, I seem to have run into a little bit of writer's block! While writer's block is not necessarily something I subscribe to, wouldn't you say it makes an effective ice breaker on a writing forum?

    I have been a writer for a very long time and am currently working on a project that will become my first published work. I once belonged to a writing group years before, not an internet group but a face-to-face group, and really enjoyed it, but with my schedule and semi-rural location that has not been an option for a while, so I thought I would check your site out. While what "free-time" I do have may not allow me much time to cavort often on the boards, I am very much looking forward to sharing in the knowledge and love of our art and craft with my fellow writers.

    Hi Cosmic Latte, nice to cyber meet ya! I'm with you on the free time, I value every last minute of the rat-race filled world I call life. I just found this site, scouring the Internet for templates to publish several writing projects I just completed. I've thought long and hard about writing, but never went through actually self-publishing them. Let's cross our fingers for this journey we're on.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Cosmic Latte!

    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.
