    Writing is so much fun :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Marcitty77, Dec 16, 2012.

    Hello,

    I just joined this site some minutes ago to be able to talk to other creative people. I have always loved writing one way or another but lately been into writing books. I´m working on several projects but mainly one " book" really. Writing gives me such freedom and relaxation. Don´t know if any of you other feel this same sensation? For me the hardest part is not really to write but having a family and work, the time is the one I´m in lack of. I have had lots of time lately to write and feel I have to make it for myself and I guess half a chapter a day is better then nothing.

    One question in my mind is do you guys have education for writing or not? I tried to get into a creative writing course this spring but too many applicants for the English courses :(. I was thinking maybe there is something online that is good that you can recommend? I mainly think it would be good to have something in paper about writing when publishing, although I feel anyone that can write should do it whatever anyone says.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Carita!

    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 requirements. 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, Cogito, Lemex and Dante Dases) 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.
