    Hello! (For lack of a better word)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by BawaK, Jan 6, 2013.

    I'm one of those people who can do a lot of things on a slightly above average level, and can't decide what I'd rather do. (I'm not bragging, I swear.) I've tried my hand at art, theatre, music (percussion, vocals, guitar), science, juggling and football - the last one was more of trying my leg. I don't mean to say that I failed at those things so I'm going to try writing, oh no. I still do all of the above, but I've always wanted to write, and I've got something of a start, so I figure I'll make say while the Hun shines.
    As you might have noticed, I love spoonerisms.

    Other details:
    I'm 18. I'm a Mechanical engineering student in India. Big fan of Wodehouse, Stephen Fry and Douglas Adams. Bill Watterson is my God.
    By the way - and this will probably get me ragged a lot - I support Manchester City FC. No, it's not because I'm a United hater, at least, it's not the only reason. *nervous laughter* I've supported City for some time, long before they won the EPL, so please don't go all you-support-them-cause-they're-winning-at-the-moment on me.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, BawaK!

    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.
