    Hi everyone,
    I am new to this website. I signed on because I like to write and I am currently going to school so I figured it would help strengthen my writing/ typing skills. I don't have very many friends, so virtual friends might be better than none right? I will try my best to write on here everyday, my life is kind of busy though. If anyone would like to be that friend to push me into writing topics and things with them, that might be cool. If not that's cool. I just hope there is someone out there that cares. lol. Well good writings peeps. :)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, geniegirl027!

    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.

    Banzai,
    Thank you for the useful information. I will make it a point to get familiar with the rules. I guess I better get to posting. I love to write and I hope this site will strengthen my skills and also allow me to see what else is out there. Someday after I earn my teaching degree I also hope, that maybe just maybe I could write and get published some children's books or young adult books. We shall see where my life takes me though. I am excited to start the writing learning experience.
