    New to the Community: Jason Ludwig

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by JasonLudwig, May 20, 2012.

    Greetings to all!
    My name is Jason Ludwig and obviously I am new to this site and community. After looking around for a bit though, I have to say that I am pretty impressed. My goal is to contribute as much as I benefit from being a part of this and most sites I have visited had a distinct lack of focus on writing and publishing. WritingForum seems right for me.

    I am currently working on a fifth revision for my first novel and really want to get it out there soon. Its a fantasy piece entitled: A Viakov's Tale.

    I can't wait to get in on discussions! Thank you for the opportunity.

    I'm sure we can learn from each other Guy. I would say that my work is also "based in the old world of swords and the like". Its a fantasy world though, so the similarities to our world don't go much past technology and nature. Tell me a little bit about what you are doing? How are you starting up? Just writing or did you make an outline of how you want the book to go?

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Jason!

    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 requirments. 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.

    I wrote bullet points for direction of where the book will go - it may end up being a few books, but for now I have definately got one book outlined...its like 13 bullet points. I also have the names and outlines of the places within the story and made a mock up/crude map in paint to show the areas of the kingdoms etc...I also wrote down names of some characters and outline of what they are about. Ive already added a new character in the first chapter, but thought by doing this it would give me an idea on where I am going rather than ambling along.

    Ill be honest I did research on some historical stories about Ancient Britain around the time of the Roman invasion to give me some ideas.
