    Hi!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Tjrossin, Dec 6, 2012.

    Hi,

    I'm Tris,

    Not so mush a writer but a professional illustrator by trade... However I'm working on a Children's book in my spare time and I'm looking for inspiration, ideas and feedback as I enter into the uncharted world of creative writing. I'm looking forward to posting my book ideas and getting some constructive feedback, at present I'm creating my book using the "arse end round approach" which means I'm illustrating it first to see which stories appear out of that creative process. Of course I have a loose idea, but the detail in the writing will flow from the pictures I create, a little crazy, but that's the best plan I could muster in order to get this off the ground.


    So hi! Hope you're all friendly and don't bite. Oh... I'm also dyslexic so I'm prone to typo's and general grammatical mistakes so please be gentle (ish)

    Oh... Here's a quick illustration from the book I'm doing, hopefully that'll clear up the professional illustrator part not being a delusion of grandeur. :)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Tris!

    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 requirements. 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.

    Many thanks Maia.

    I'll definitely be picking your brains over ideas etc.... I'm expecting this to be quite a journey so any help and feedback I can get will be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks Banzai,

    I'll do my best to add some constructive reviews although I don't feel particularly qualified in this area. It'll most definitely an amateur and under-qualified critique of work. :)

    Thank you!
