    Howdy Howdy

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by SuttonMichael254, Jun 15, 2012.

    Howdy everyone my name is Mike. I work out in the oil field in the middle of nowhere so i do have quite a good bit of free time. I have been writing my whole life and have wrote poetry, short stories, and a couple of novel outlines, and now writing out here helps my mind with missing my kids soo much.
    I have wrote 3 diffrent novel outlines, but i think the one im working on right now is the winner, but i do have my doubts.
    Im hoping that this site will help me with my writings as well as let me put my imput in to whoever would like to hear it.
    Im a say from the get go my spelling is horrible, but thats why we have spell check right.

    i hope to gain friendships and mentors.
    So Howdy Howdy again!

    Good lack relaying of spill chuck. It Mrs. a grate dale.

    There is no substitute for developing a solid knowledge of spelling, not to mention usage. Knowing the difference between lose and loose, or between site and sight, is as important and knowing how to spell difficult words.

    But if you are determined to put in the work, you can master these aspects of writing, and the more abstract elements as well.

    Welcome to the site, and have fun!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Mike!

    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.
