    It is 12:39AM and I just joined!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by cr8tivewriter, Apr 27, 2013.

    Hi Everyone!

    I just recently joined this community because I wanted a sense of belonging to some kind of community. This is my very first time joining a forum and I chose to join a writing community because I have dabble with some short story writing here and there. I was hoping I might get some feedback on what I have written and go from there. Some of the VERY short stories that I have written were based off of my dreams and I have added more elaborate details with my own creative spin.

    I hope to get to know some of you and please be kind to me. :D

    Go writers! :)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, crea8tivewriter!

    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! We also have a growing short story club (think book club, but with short stories!), which you can find stickied in the Book Discussion forum.

    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.

    Laziness. I'll put up an avatar today, I guess. And it will be a picture of a squirrel.
