    SGTGerman reporting in...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by SGTGerman, Dec 6, 2012.

    I'd like to just introduce myself. Most people simply call me "SGT", I'm 21 and from the Midlands :) I've always loved creative writing and one day, I'd love to write a series of novels which would hopefully be converted into film or tv series.

    I've to this site as I've not got the best writing techniques although after finally getting around to actually reading a few novels (most noteably the Star Wars Republic Commandos) I've got an urge to improve myself and learn about other styles.

    I have piece ready to post when I can in the mean time I'm looking forward to receiving some quality advice.


    SGT.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, SGT!

    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.

    Hi SGT, Welcome to the forum. Have a look at other peoples work and post critiques. It will really help you look at your own writing. Hope you find it as useful as I do.

    Thanks for the welcome. I read the terms and I can't wait to post the first two parts of what I've been walking on. I've posted a few times however, I see myself as a novice and tbh find it difficult to critique others. Therefore, it might take me slightly longer to be granted posting rights.

    Look forward to exploring more of the sight though. Cheers.
