    Introduction

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by adampjr, Feb 7, 2012.

    Hi,
    I am finally introducing myself to this forum. I frequently read this forum for a while before I registered. After registering, I continued to do so. Now, I am actually going to try and become more actively involved.
    I have very little experience in creative writing. I have a variety of interests and have lately considered branching out into more creative pursuits (blogging, video-making, podcasting, writing, etc). I hope to offer what value I can to others on this forum and will continue to learn from the experience and perspective provided here.

    Thanks to your post, I finally realised what's so creepy about lurking a forum. It's like following someone around in real life and listening to their conversations, then eventually introducing yourself and saying, "Hi there, I'm <name>, and I know everything about you already."
    Thankfully, this is the internet, so I don't mind, you creepy creeper you. Welcome!

    Very well done, gathering information and analyzing the situation before actually taking part in it. Sounds like something I'd do - I'm proud of you :p

    Welcome to the forums, and I hope you enjoy your time here - but as an active participant! I'm sure you've got great talent and knowledge to add to all of our tiny little brains.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, adampjr!

    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 and Cogito) 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.

    Thanks, all.
    I'll make sure I learn the ropes and abide by the rules, and I'll do what I can to contribute to others' works before asking others to help me. It's a good policy.
