    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Seej, Jul 8, 2012.

    My real name is Colin. I find myself in my thirties even though I'm not entirely sure how I got here. It's all been a blur of airports, train stations and more than a few pubs nestled amongst them. I've been writing casually since I was about 15 and although it has not always been consistent I have always come back to it. I'm a little nervous about sharing my work as I've never allowed anyone to read it before but I'll read some more of the work posted already and perhaps I'll gain some confidence to post my own.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Colin!

    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.

    Welcome aboard, I'm a newbie too but everyone is great here and I've settled in nicely in a short time. I hear you about the thirties, I'm still in shock that I'm getting towards the later end of mine. Age really is a state of mind and in my head I'm still the wild 20-something, if a lot more responsible and wiser.

    Hello :D Welcome to a new life of writing :) By that I mean, if you've never been a part of something like this, it is an entirely new take on writing and developement. What I have found is that you don't trully need to share your work until you've learned all you can from here and can't seem to get a piece to where you want it. in any case the people here are polite and totally supportive. I look forward to seeing some of what you've written. :) or even some commentary you have on other's work and questions :D
