    Hi!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by writerwannabe13, Aug 22, 2012.

    I've always loved to write. So a friend recommended this place to me in hopes I would find a place to bounce ideas off of and help when needed.

    I don't expect to be the next Stephen King or anything like that it is just a dream to get something of mine published. I'm even going to go by way of Kindle self-publishing. If I can say hey I published something at the end of mine life I'll be happy. If I manage to make a couple dollars I will be in shock.


    I will say grew up with a learning disability so Grammar was always hard for me and I've always been afraid to show people my work for that reason. I believe the ideas are there to entertain the words are there to entertain BUT the Grammar just isn't there like it should be.


    I guess I don't specialize in anyway. I've written things for young adults and adults. Problem is my writing is never good enough for me. I am probably my own worse critic.

    Not more else I can say.

    Welcome Ww13!

    I was in a similar boat as you when I started, but my experience here greatly improved by grammar. You can look forward to the same experience I hope!

    I'll be looking forward to seeing some of your work :)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Writerwannabe13!

    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.

    Never worry about grammar until you have a finished product, or else you'll just get bogged down in it.

    Grammar? What's grammar? I don't usually bother with the nit picky grammar stuff until after I get the creative part out.

    Anyway, welcome, and I hope you get the help you want.
