    Hello everybody.

    Well as you can see, my nickname is Saddun. My real name is Christian. I don't care too much, how you call me, Christian, Chris, Saddun, Sadd...It's up to you.

    I'm currently 18 years old (but not long anymore) and I'm living in Germany.
    As you can guess, my mother tongue is German.
    My English is in no regard good, I'm trying to improve myself but well...I'm not too good with languages, so please correct me, if my words are missing any...sense, or my grammar is messed up in any possible way.
    I was writing my whole life as far as I remember. I started a book a few years back, when I still was in school but I gave it (when it had like 60 pages) to my German teacher and it was shredded by him.
    I wasn't able to continue it since then, but I'll restart it soon (In English, so you might even read a bit of it)

    Hum...any more information’s required? Feel free to ask, I'm a nice person....mostly.

    Best regards,
  2. Trilby

    Hi Sadd, welcome to the forums,

    Your teacher shredded your work, all 60 pages, shame on him - imo he is not fit to be a teacher (talk about nurturing talent). Put it behind you and start again in spite of that useless oaf of a 'teacher?'

    Hi, I'm from Italy and English is not so good too. But practice makes it better, doesn't it? So, let's keep on writing!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Sadd!

    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. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter!

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, 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.
