    :) Hiya!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by epicfailpig, Jul 9, 2012.

    Hey guys! Epicfailpig here - epic for short. I'm a newbie writer with about 5+ years of experience under my belt. Yeah, I know; five years is nothing in the grand scheme of things, but I have to start somewhere, right?

    Anywho, I've been kinda-sorta checking out the site for a month now, working up the courage to join and actually post some of my work. I've been on a few other writing sites, but have had trouble getting the feedback that I've been looking for. At the moment, I'm still trying to figure out that confusing little thing called style, and maybe a way to clean up my writing a bit more.

    On another note, I've also been dabbling in editing and beta-reading. It's an on-the-side sort of thing, and I'm not sure how much feedback I'll find here on the topic, but I suppose it's something to mention.

    Oh, and regardless of which field I end up working on, I'll probably wind up frequenting the RPG section of the site. To be honest, the reason I got into writing was because of written RPs, and I'm still an active written RPer on another site. Of course, seeing as that other site is infamous for writing long, drawn-out RP posts, and that the word limits on this site are a tad different than that one, it'll take me a bit to get used to writing less.

    Well, that's all for now. Happy writing, folks!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Epicfailpig!

    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.
