    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by pingulikescookies, Jan 10, 2012.

    Hey,

    I'm pingu. I hate introductions. Unless your really good with words they suck or are just socially awkward! :]

    I like writing and reading. I'm obsessed with vampire novels. I also own a website (WordPress run) :rolleyes: and am always looking for new people to join the ranks!
    Music is like oxygen and without live isnt worth living. :D

    I hope to find some usful tips and tricks on here, I know that its a bright and diverse culture here and look forward to helping people with there problems.
    I'm also trying to learn russian! :D

    Welcome to the forums Pingu ! ( Even though I am also a newbie :p ). I hope you find what you seek here. You have a point that introductions almost always seem out of place as they are an unnatural way to engage conversation on a message board ! XD

    What vampire novels do you like? I love those books as well but know only a few, so I would be interested in adding more to my collection.

    Also would you share the URL to your website so we can visit it?

    Welcome to Writing Forums, pingulikescookies!

    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.
