    Howdy Folks

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Battyvamp, Feb 10, 2013.

    Howdy all!

    Just want to say "Hi" and I am looking forward to participating in the forums.

    A little about myself: I have been interested in writing since I have learned to write. I have always done super short stories, and sadly I never kept any of my work as a kid. I have either lost them all or thrown them away. It wasn't until I was older that I learned to regret not having those works, even if they were simplistic in nature.

    I am currently trying my hand at writing my first novel. It is a novel that takes place here in my hometown of Tampa, Florida and it is in an Urban Fantasy setting. UF is my preferred genre, though I do occasionally read suspense and horror.

    I love to laugh and find some of the simplest things to amuse me, even slapstick. I love music, all kinds though I do draw the line at the newer country music that is out. I do prefer Heavy Metal and good ol' Rock-N-Roll and I find it helps me get in the mood or to keep the mood I am looking for when I am writing.

    I am also a bit of a ditz so forgive me when I go all dingbatty :D

    I have hit a bit of a block with my writing, mainly getting my thoughts organized enough to write down and the mechanics of how I want my UF world to work out, so I am looking for hints, tips and techniques to work around all of that as well as inspiration.

    I am looking forward to getting to know you all. :)

    P.S.
    I can be a bit long winded too, fair warning :p

    Ummm I would have to say Jon Davis from Korn. Loved him and them since they came out with Blind back in the 90's. Was all over the place on music and people I liked before he hit the scene.

    He can do almost no wrong in my eyes :D

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Battyvamp!

    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. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter!

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, 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.
