    Hey guys. Just thought I would drop a quick "hi" in since I'm pretty shy and will probably be lurking a long while before I post anything else. :redface:

    I've loved creative writing since I got my first real taste of it back when I was in high school. At the time I toyed with the idea of pursuing it but real life happened and it got pushed aside. A few years ago I discovered a text-based RP forum and was able to sate my creative desires there. Recently I realized that it's become more of a crutch than anything else; it's kept my writing skills relatively sharp but has done nothing to improve them. It's also been years since I've written anything truly original. I'm hoping that joining this forum will help keep me motivated to write my own stories and also help me hone my writing skills. I'm looking forward to getting to know the community around here and hopefully contributing in some small way once I get my courage up to actually post something.

    Welcome to the forum, Wyr. :)

    Though I know you are looking to branch away from RP, let me tell you that we have a great RP section here. Friendly folks, good sessions. If you feel you need the occasional "fix" to get you through the dry spells, we've got the "stuff". :D

    Now for the official stuff ;):

    Please have a look through the Forum Rules, and the FAQ as a start. Then take a leisurely stroll through the different areas of the forum to get your bearings. Once you have a good idea where everything is, come and say hello in the Lounge or have a look at the items already up for review in the Workshop

    Please remember that as a full participation workshop. You are required to give two (2) constructive reviews of posted items prior to posting your own work. Thereafter, two reviews for every post of your own work is the expected standard. Remember that two is only a minimum.

    Why do we have this requirement? Because we have a very different philosophy here than you will find in most other forums. We are not a refrigerator door to pin up work with a colorful magnet for all the world to see. Our forum is not about getting reviewed. It’s about giving reviews and in the process improving your own writing.

    Have fun! :D
