    Hello Everyone

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Chellie Huss, Aug 9, 2012.

    Looking for a group to help me with things I am weak in and to help where I can. Before I started writing for real I wrote pros. I have been writing pros for several years, now I am wanting to write real fiction and learning style, creation and how to. Fiction and pros are very different creatures. I am basically learning from the get go, (from scratch), I like the info on the site. There will be things I will post for review and feed back. I am sure the learning process is
    very different from what I have been doing. I will put forth the effort to do this the best I can. I hope to eventually help others when I start learning so I can learn more and do better work.

    My name is Ms Chellie I am from San Diego California. I enjoy audio books, kindle books and writing pros and short stories. Hope to add writing longer stories or even books to this list of enjoyments. I so far like creating strange and unusual creatures combined of other creatures hoping to make them different and unusual.

    When I am not writing I am creating jewelry designs, more specifically pendants in common shapes.

    Looking forward to getting to know the people here and learning all I can.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Chellie!

    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.
