    Just a guy out of high school

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Suntzuprodigy, Nov 21, 2012.

    Hey there,
    I'm just a guy with no further education than high school.. I've always been interested in creative writing, I mean I'm generally a funny guy and I tend to just write whatever comes to mind to express myself, be it poetry, or lyrics. I've always been involved in music. I used played guitar for many years and basically what im trying to establish here is if the things i write are typical cliche's of a person who thinks he can write, an emotionally detached fundamentalist if you will. I wouldn't even know what to call what i write or where to apply it or where to better myself.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Suntzuprodigy!

    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.

    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.

    Hey Suntzuprodigy.

    Firstly, welcome to the site. I'm not very smart on poetry, but I know there is a gathering of people here who are; in fact, there is a forum category; and if I'm not mistaken, there's also poetry contests. You seem to discount yourself a little, but you know what? I think that no matter where we are in life, we always have insight into something that nobody else does. Good luck with your writing and I hope you enjoy the community here.
