    Well, Hi!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Lordcerii, May 24, 2011.

    Hi, just hi!

    First of all: Who am I? Why am I here?

    I am here because I like writing. At first I wrote badly, very badly. Then I started off roleplaying and my writing skills improved. In addition I invented some technique that helped me creating plots, characters and acctually improves my memory and my mind's performance. Exactly that technique was one of the reasons why I started searching for others on sites like this, I wanted to share my technique in order to help others.

    Who am I? In my technique and sometimes when RPing or writing I'm Gregory, he represents my true self which I hardly ever show to anyone in RL. He is helpful, kind, courageous when helping someone, slightly shy when doing something for himself and a bit strange sometimes. Sometimes I'm not sure whether I am Gregory as a imaginary character of mine or as my true self. Honestly I don't really know what or who I am, just call me Lordcerii, Lord or Cer if you like.

    I hope this isn't too confusing...

    Lord? There are so many of them, and to most there is only one. So welcome, Cerii. Oh Lord, what did I drink?

    Hello Cer, Welcome to the Creative Writing Forums.

    Please read How to Use the Writing Workshop before you try to post there. Posting your own writing for people to comment on should not be among the very first things you do here anyway. It is worth taking the time to see what other people have done to improve their writing, and see if some of it applies to your writing as well. That is part of why we require members to review other members' work before posting their own for review. On the other hand, there are no restrictions, other than content and copyright rules, on showcasing your work in your member blog.

    Also, be aware that posting a piece of writing on any public site, including this one, will greatly diminish your chances of selling it for publication. Removing the writing later does not alter that fact - once posted, it is irreversibly considered published. So do not post anything more than a small excerpt of any piece you are planning to submit for publication.

    If you haven't explored the site yet, you should probably do so soon. Newcomers often gravitate to the Lounge, the Word Games, or the Writing Workshop, but there is much more to be discovered if you poke in the corners. Remember to check out our FAQ as well, and be sure to read through the forum rules, too, to avoid any misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Respect for one another is our principal mandate.

    As for the Writing Workshop, new joiners often wonder why we do things a bit differently on this site than on other writing sites. We emphasize constructive critique as a vital writing skill. Training your eye by reviewing other people's work helps you improve your own writing even before you present it for others to see. Therefore, we ask members to review other people's writing before posting work of their own. We also impose a two-week waiting period before you may post writing for critique, to give you time to become familiar with what is expected and how the site operates. The Writing Workshop forums on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work (and on that note, please only post each item for review in one Writing Workshop forum). Also, please use the same thread for all revisions and additional excerpts from the same piece of writing. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    And while you're looking around, don't forget to check out the RPG forum for improvisational fiction. Also try our Weekly Short Story Contest and Weekly Poetry Contest. They actually run more than one week apiece, but any member may enter, and all members are urged to vote for their favorites.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Welcome. Totally with you about writing badly at first. I also used to text-based role play fairly often. It was very helpful because I wasn't writing much, and that sort of kept me writing.

    Hope you enjoy your stay.
