    New to the forums and have a few questions :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by jrdarkness2, Apr 29, 2012.

    First, I would like to introduce myself. My username is jrdarkness2 but I don't mind being called jr. I am a 13 year old boy who loves writing. I have been writing awful since I was seven, but this year I decided that I wanted to give it a solid try. I've been working on many different stories, but I think I finally settled on one. I am in an AP ELA class and am very creative (in my humble opinion). So yeah, as the title states, I have a few questions.

    1) How is kid's writing treated around here? Would it get reviewed or would people just skip over it when they see my name?

    2) I would really love a program to organize my thoughts, but most good ones are outdated. I have 10$ to spend if it costs any money.

    3) How come I can't post in the novel section? I would really love to post an excerpt of my story, but I cannot for the life of me find the POST NEW button.

    Thank you in advance!

    Edit: I'm aware I have 15 posts, I was on the forum a long time ago - this is an old account.

    1) I don't look at the age of the author when reviewing something. Can't speak for anyone else.
    2) Try cnet downloads. Search for the type of software you want, then filter so it's only the free stuff. Make sure you deselect any search panels if you get anything.
    3) Read the rules. 20 posts/ 2 reviews.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, jr!

    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 and Cogito) 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.
