    So it begins...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Nirethell, Nov 30, 2011.

    First and foremost I have to say I'm new here! Just signed up and it seems to be a great community!
    Now allow me to apologize for my grammar and spelling before I go any further..

    I've been a writer all my life, mainly I have always written lyrics and story's in song form.. But the last couple years I've been working on a novel. If you want to know about it just ask! I don't bite! Lol

    No I don't have any questions as of yet, this was just me introducing myself, and I'm sure I'll have tons of questions in the near future!

    Also, I may have already posted this in general writing because I'm on my iPhone and didn't see the "introduce yourself" topic at the bottom XD

    Also I'm interested in starting a blog here. I've had them before on other websites but they never had any real traffic, and I'd love to get some feedback on my writing style and capabilities, so thanks in advance!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Nirethell!

    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.

    Thanks Banzai, I'm positive that I'll find exactly what I'm looking for here! I have no problem with following your rules, they make perfect sense to me! I was just looking for a decent community who are basically looking to help one another further their writing skills, and I believe i found that.

    I'm not sure I'm exactly ready to post any of my work just yet, I'd like to finish it, review it, edit it, and rewrite certain parts of it I feel are not up to par with what I could do.

    However, I will venture into the forums and give my critiques of others' work. I'm here to help!
