    Hello all!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Vee Pessanha, Jul 17, 2012.

    Just joined today :) It's very late here where I live so I'm only dropping by to introduce myself quickly before I let myself nod off.
    I've been writing pretty much since I was 8 years old (Im 36 now) but it's only recently that I have taken it upon myself to do the one thing I have always wanted to do: write and publish a novel.
    My current WIP is only a baby but I'm having a lot of fun writing it. I also have a writing blog which has helped me come a long way with my writing.
    Anyway, I hope to get to know some people on here. Am open to critiques on my work and vice versa.
    Ciao for now.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Vee Pessanha!

    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.
