    Artist turned Writer :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by liquidenvy, Dec 14, 2012.

    Hey, everyone.
    I've always been a big reader, and I've been a freelance illustrator for years. I got into RPGs when I was younger mostly because I liked the artwork in my rule books, and I had a blast drawing other people's characters--something I still do to this day for my writer and roleplayer friends.
    Eventually, creating communal stories via RP led pretty naturally into wanting to tell my own stories, and so here I am.

    I love fantasy, first and foremost, though I've got a good appreciation for various other genres and literary work. I love a lot of the classics.

    Right now, I'm about 110k into a rewrite of my first novel. When I'm stuck with the writing, out comes the drawing pad.

    Hey liquidenvy, I'm new too. Drawing takes up some of my time, though I'm not that good at it :redface: Fantasy is and always will be my first love, but like you I will read from whatever genre has a good book that day. And as for classics, well, Verne all the way (kind of a fan of steampunk and such).

    Anyway, hope to see you 'round here!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, liquidenvy!

    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.
