    I go by the name Satraan.
    I have always written, since my childhood days of crayon tales. I wrote short stories as a teenager, mostly for school purposes, but did not truly take a liking to them.
    I've always been an avid reader with a great love of the fantasy genre.
    I have now started my first (serious) writing project, the first novel of an intended trilogy. It is called A Dance of Sword and Shadow and has an estimated word count of 140 000. Of this, I have written 80%.
    I also enjoy video games, movie marathons, art, and anything dragon-related.

    I look forward to being a part of this lovely little community.

    Hello, Satraan.

    First of all, I need to say how much we have in common. Love of fantasy, check; first serious project intended to be a trilogy, check; video games, movie marathons, art, dragons. All check. Seriously, it's freaky. Stop freaking me out.

    On a serious note, though :)p), welcome to the forums. You will find a lot of help here, but also a lot of people that just state their answer without actally stating why they said that answer. Also, expect people to have contradictory opinions, as that is what writing is all about: differing opinions.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your posts and comments. :)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Satraan!

    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.
