    Who Am I? An Introduction by Tenelen

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Tenelen, Dec 11, 2011.

    Hello there everybody,

    My name is Derek, but for ease of not having to remember that, you all can call me Tenelen. I am a college student in my third year studying both Psychology and Music. I plan on graduating next year and going on to Grad School to continue studying Psychology.

    As for music, I study it for fun. I focus on studying how to play the guitar but recently I have taken up viola (a larger deeper toned violin) as well so that I could become a member of our orchestra. I find that learning music is also a great tool for developing both creativity and critical thinking, as music theory is very complex.

    Random facts about me:
    I am here because I have always loved reading, and I have also had a desire to write. Creating and designing things has always been something that I have dreamed of doing, but I have never known the field in which I would like to do that. Recently I have found a new love, video game and board game design. Not only that, but fantasy writing in general.

    On top of all of what I have mentioned above, I also run a gaming, music, photography and general interest blog with my girlfriend. You can find the blog here:
    http://tenfoxproductions.blogspot.com/

    There you will be able to find things such as photos that I have taken, stories I have written and random things about my life.

    Why am I here?

    I would like to learn, and gain some help from a community such as this one with writing. I hope to be able to post things that I am having trouble with, or things that I have created, and see what people think about it.

    Nice to meet you all!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Tenelen!

    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.
