    One of Those New People~

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Loki Laufeyson, Jun 2, 2012.

    Hey, I don't really know what to put down here so it'll probably be just a bunch of pointless information that no one needs to know. I guess I should start by saying that writing isn't really a passion of mine, it's more a hobby that I do when bored. I usually write fan fictions, well I start them anyway, but I am working on several pieces as we speak. Most of them have not been touched for a while though.
    My current one, is a Loki fanfiction, I have the whole story in my mind, just writing it is a little hard for me.
    Anyway, I do enjoy reading though, love it but my reading has gone down as well. I enjoy nearly every genre, except for plain out romance because that stuff just makes me want to throw up.
    I'm a big roleplaying though, and I'm on another forums where roleplaying is a big thing, actually two other forums. So I'm not a total noob.

    Anyway, I may or may not post anything here. I really only joined as a way to roleplay with a friend through PM, but I've decided to join in with the community.

    Also, I am obsessed with Loki at the moment. Hence the screen name and such.

    Peace off~

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Loki!

    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.

    Glad to see you jumping in with both feet Loki! Writer's block and challenges in stories are frequent topics around here, I'm sure you'll find some help. Feel free to contact me as well if you need some inspiration or a critique, often times just talking about a story with someone helps you over hurdles and inspires you to keep writing. :)
