    Xaty, emerging from the sea

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Xatyrn, Feb 2, 2012.

    Hello, Writing Forums. :3

    On the Internet I tend to go by Xatyrn, or Xaty. I was sifting through writing forums online and decided to try this one. I understand that I can't start throwing my work on the forum right away, so I'll be happy to contribute to other areas as needed. One thing I CAN give advice on is writing. I'm excited and hope I'm not disappointed with this place. Surely I won't be. :3

    A few things about myself...well, obviously I love to write. I have an English teacher who inspires me tremendously.
    And I love the sea. The sea is inspiring and one of the first works I shall present here is a memoir of the sea. :love:

    Welcome. Just wondering if Xatyrn is pronounced like Saturn? I'm really bad at that kind of stuff.

    Anyway I don't think you'll be disappointed. :) People here are generally friendly (I report the suckers that aren't), and there's a a wealth of knowledge here you won't find anywhere else.



    Happy posting!

    Thank you Cerrus, TD, and jc. :3
    I've noticed already that there is quite a lot to be learned here. I'm kind of excited to have my work critiqued, but nervous, too...

    Anyway, Xatyrn is like Saturn except...Zaturn. x3

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Xatyrn!

    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.
