    learner in the front

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by simmr001, Mar 13, 2013.

    Hi I'm simmr001

    I've been writing for about 3 months now. I wish to learn as much as possible about writing mechanics as possible so my stories can be engaging.

    I'm currently writing two separate stories, technically fanfiction, and anything I do learn will hopefully better them

    Welcome to Writing Forums, simmr001!

    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.

    ("...so welcome to writersforum then..." replied the goblin wondering what could possibly aide one's writing more than writing in each and every post one did in the way that somehow did justice to one's pen, saying "...well, convention seems to have it that each of us must write like everyone else does, in the dullest of texts with neither narration nor dialogue, in other words that which you mostly see around you now, but I can't write as you humans do so I don't even try anymore, instead I have full use of narration and dialogue in everything day after day after day...", and with that that goblin gave up on talking and simply drew a circle in the air to reveal a coffee-table with the finest of filtered coffee with some homemade biscuits too, whose aroma left little doubt the goblin dab hand at welcoming humans to writer's forums, where smiling he voiced "...so come and write with me whenever...")

    ("...double post, don't you just hate it when that happens, naughty computer, I will now spank you..." voiced the goblin)
