    Not new but only just posting a proper intro

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by chaoserver, Feb 14, 2012.

    Hey everyone, Kevin here.
    I'm 20, been writing casually for awhile but am taking the plunge into serious writing at last. I was reading some fantasy recently, some of which was excellent and inspiring and others which were laughable(you know the stuff you read and say "I can do better than this"). So I decided to put up or shut up and here I am 100 pages into my writing, giving life to characters I've had in my head for years, with commissioned artwork and countless notes.
    My twitter is @kevinbgwrites and my website is www.kevinbgwrites.com , both new.
    Anyone who wants to pitch me words, encouragement, or advice is welcome. I can already tell this will be a road with many ups and downs!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Kevin!

    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.
