    Hello there. Not really ever done the forum thing before but thought it might be good to find some other writers to talk to!
    I'm currently writing a children's story, which is the first thing I have written for a long time.
    I used to write a lot as a young teenager but then life got in the way :p
    I have been home educating my boys for several years now and I guess that through our experiences and encouragement from writing a blog of our journey I found the inspiration to write again.
    So here I am.
    I'm not sure what I hope to get or give to this forum but I'm interested in meeting a few like minded individuals :D

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Flump!

    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 to Writing Forums, Flump!

    I like writing children's stories too! And, that's great you are home educating your boys. I was home-schooled for my high school years, and I loved it. :)

    Hope you enjoy your time here!
