    The man in the Purple Suits

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Purplesuits, Dec 13, 2011.

    Afternoon,

    My name is Lucas Cameron. A twenty-one year old boy running around Nova Scotia, seeing what I can, doing what I can.
    I'm excited to be a part of this forum. I write off and on at work as I'm employed somewhere that allows me to spend hours doing so. Although I find I don't really spend those hours writing as steadfast as I should so I'm hoping spending time on this forum will help. At least it will get me in the frame of mind and hopefully learn a few things.

    I was writing sci fi short stories for a little while but got bored, swilled a lot of b12 (%8000 of my daily) and started writing a somewhat funny fantasy novel. I feel like I'm spending too much time on exposition though, and I need to see how scene writing works. If anyone would like to see what I've got so far I would surely like to show you, but I don't know how copyrights work around here and am wondering if it's an overly good idea. Whatever, it's only five pages and I would like some critiquing.

    Thank you kindly.

    Regards,
    Lucas

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Lucas!

    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.

    Anyway, welcome to the forum...hope you find what you're looking for! Once your two weeks is up, I'll be looking for your story in the Writer's Workshop.
