    Shiny New! Hello all...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Sithinaboot, Jun 24, 2012.

    Hello. I just want to say how glad I am to have found you all...

    I have been secretly checking out the threads here for a while now and thought it was about time I registered, I have already gained so much from this site and from all of you lovely people and I just want to say hello and thank you.

    I’m fairly new to this writing stuff and I am kicking myself for not starting way sooner. I have always had ideas, stories playing out inside my brain and I was content to just leave them there or muse about them with friends over a few drinks. Until one day one of my lovely buddies suggested that I start writing and when I did it all fell into place. Suddenly all of these little imaginary friends of mine had somewhere to live other than inside my head. It’s kind of therapeutic. My new obsession.

    So I’m here because I want to learn how to do it right, I want to improve on my fairly sheltered use of the English language and just absorb as much as I can about the craft.

    So hello all *waves*

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Sithinaboot!

    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.
