    Warning: Genaric Intro to follow...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by 1000screams, Feb 12, 2012.

    Hi Writers. I'm a writer too. Wow, way to state the obvious jackass. I've been writing for what seems like all my life. Yawn. Everyone says this. Nothing is thrilling me here. I write horror. Finally a statement of value. But there's no expansion of this. What about you write fascinating horrific tales that grip the reader by the throat and threaten to cut off the valuable, life giving air supply? But I guess your humble nature is trying to not up-sell your ability. I've published some non-fiction, but my fiction remains unpublished. Nice way to sound as if your passively waiting for the end, dipwad. How about in a stronger voice," I've published some non-fiction and my fictional publications are just around the corner." Sounds little more optimistic too. I'm not new to forums, but I've never been very active on them. This is a lie you big douch. You're a webforum whore and you know it. I'm looking forward to getting to know some new people and participating a bit. That's because you don't have any friends you loser and the internet is all you got!

    See you on the boards,
    1000screams

    I think my own intro just got blown out of the water :/

    Nice to meet you! And with a name like 1000screams I'd have never guessed you wrote horror ;)

    I'm thoroughly impressed with this introduction, I must admit. And I think I might begin doing this to everything and anything I say from now on - way to be inspiring!

    Anyway, welcome to the forums, and I hope you enjoy your time here!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, 1000screams!

    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 for the nice welcomes everyone. I have been joining up on some different types of forums lately, and it just feels like I'm writing the same crappy words over and over again. I was crafting this intro while watching the directors commentary on Knocked Up. I had read over a bunch of intros before me and saw the pattern...so I didn't want to be like everyone else with the same bland intro. First impressions are important. 1000screams is for both screams of horror and delight. I do humor and horror, preferably at the same time, like a menage-of-goodness. (There should be one of those little vowel thingys over the E in mEnage.) My internal critic and I argue frequently. She's a bitch most of the time, but self deprecation is humorous.

    I'm actually pretty sure I was on this board before. In a former incarnation of it back years and years ago. When I saw Cog's name I knew I'd been here before. I have no clue what my name was before even, that's how long it's been.
