    New but not new

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Mistborn, Mar 12, 2013.

    Hello forum. As you can probably see, I created this account in 2011 but I've never posted. I'd say most of it was my low motivation to write. However lately I've been feeling rather morose about my free time and decided it's about time for me to get on track and start to seriously write more.

    I've done zero short stories or have participated in no writing contests whatsoever. I've researched a couple of things and I've really worked on one project that I've had in mind for years but have barely gotten anywhere. I'm completely and honestly new at writing. Like what I said earlier, most of it is a low motivation to work.. But I believe that can easily be changed when you're up against the alternative of death.

    I hope to be a good community member as one could possibly be and I hope you all will accept me as a member. I look forward to talking to you all.

    Hello and welcome back! Hope you find the motivation you seek here.

    Regarding your project: I find that sometimes it is easier just to let the words flow onto paper, not really expecting anything great out of it, when I do this it helps to get the creative juices flowing. Maybe that will help you move forward on it.

    Have fun!

    Hello Mistborn, I hope your username doesn't come from the series by Brandon Sanderson, because that's like my least favorite fantasy series. Now that I got that off my chest, welcome. :D

    I hope you have a good time here and enjoy being motivated. Just stick around and look at other people's work and you'll be motivated, it happens to me here. Good luck.

    Thanks to you both.

    Hikari: Yeah, it does.. I was reading it at the time I made my account on here. It's not the username I usually use on forums, but I thought it would befit this one(at the time, of course).

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Mistborn!

    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.
