    Thunderstruck Introduction

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Zappy, Feb 26, 2012.

    I'm sure you already dully noted some characteristics of myself just judging by my username but I shall state them anyways.

    I am a tad eccentric, very impulsive, and an aspiring writer.

    I'm about 15 and I'm sure I'm younger than most members but I hope that isn't held against me when regarding my literary works which I will soon post.

    Anyways, just thought I would say hello.

    I've been writing stories for a while and though sometimes I take extended breaks from my hobby, I find myself coming back to it one way or another.

    Welcome to the forums ! And don't worry, being eccentric is not a bad thing at all. Au contraire.

    Also I doubt anybody will hold your age against you as long as you follow the rules and contribute to the community in a positive maner !

    Have fun around here.

    Welcome Zappy!

    Make sure to do at least two constructive critiques before you post your literary works.

    I will. I think I already reviewed more two stories already xD

    How many posts do you need before you can post stories?

    Also, thank you for the greetings!

    I"m not sure how many posts you need, but it's not that many. You do need to be here for at least 2 or 3 weeks though (can't remember which).

    Ah, that explains it.

    Been reviewing stories like a madman.

    Oh well.

    Thank you!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Zappy!

    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.
