    'Sup. I'm new.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Onyx, Jan 11, 2013.

    Greetings, I guess this is the part where I tell you about myself. Well, I'll get right to it.

    I live in a country with grey skies and grey ground, there's green, and some brown, but that's about it. I love color, my mind fills my grey world with color and I try to make everything I create colorful. I have a keen eye for aesthetics and I want to bring that across in my writing. I love writing, I'm - quite humbly I might add - the best in my higher level English class. I love fantasy, sci-fi and horror novels, I love being transported to an amazing world of magic and wonder, in stark contrast to reality. I'm a dreamer, I'm sixteen and I'm at least 65% sure I'm going to acquire super powers. I'm the kind of guy who could be answering the questions on the page in front of me if I wanted to, but I'd much rather be gazing out the window, looking at the shapes of clouds against the seldom blue sky.

    So yeah, I'm me, take it or leave it.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Onyx!

    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.

    Thank you, I'll guess I'll get posting then! Also I'm hoping to get either telekinesis or the ability to control plants. Fingers naively crossed.
