    On the shores of the binary sea.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Paul Hamlin, Jan 2, 2013.

    In the past I have been many things, some unwholesome and others more unsavory still. I don't say much about
    those days, shrugged off and discarded like today's dirty laundry. Memory is a strange thing though, allowing us the freedom of time travel without any control over it. Times before flashing in and out of thought. No regard is given to the fallen.
    I write about the past, as well as my present. I go so far as to write my own future, and in it maybe happiness awaits.
    I write because it allows me to shift my existence and thought in interesting ways, allowing me to share with you, what I see in the world around me. I cloak it in allegory and metaphor, alliteration and illusion. Some stories are fantasy, while others leave the scars of brutal reality upon my psyche.
    I'm here.

    Hi Paul - Welcome to the group! Looking forward to seeing you around. I wish I could be that personal in my writing.
    Most of my stuff is made up/fantasy. Though my characters do bare a resemblance to people I know.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Paul!

    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 requirements. 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.

    Thanks for the welcome. I've tended to stay very much to myself with my writing. I'm hoping being here will allow me to change that a small bit. I do tend to ramble though.
