    Don't overthink it, Don. Just say hello.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Don Unsided, Jul 12, 2012.

    I just want to say hello for now. I will probably keep my head down and look around and try to learn for a while. This forum is much more complex than the only other one I participate in which is devoted to Land Surveying.

    I must say that the quality of the moderating and the administration here is very impressive. Also helpful. After I had registered, I had second thoughts about my choice of username. I emailed support to ask about how to change it and mentioned what I would like it to be if it could be changed. Shortly afterwards I had a response from Daniel saying “No, problem, the change is made.”

    The focus of my writing is to convey what I believe to be the several, perhaps infinite, levels, or layers, of reality. I don’t have a complete understanding of it myself, only an instinct, so I struggle with expressing it. I believe fiction is the best vehicle for what I want but I’m not sure. I’m still experimenting.

    So, Hello. I’m happy to be here and I’ll be talking to you, but mostly listening, I think, for now.

    ...infinite layers of reality... do I smell a sci-fi writer? :) Or, may be I should just stick to "welcome".

    So, hello Don, Welcome to the site!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Don!

    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, 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.

    I hope we can provide more excitement than the forums devoted to land surveying.
