    Hello There!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by awhipps, Jan 29, 2012.

    Afternoon! I'm Aaron! A pleasure to meet you all! Well, sort of..
    I'm 17, from the UK and just want hope I can get back into the swing of writing, as well as possibly making some great new friends.

    Guess I should tell you a bit about me then... :rolleyes:

    Well, I used to write all the time! Then I just seemed to lose inspiration. So I'm hoping that using this place will finally give me back the will, the inspiration and the drive to return to how I used to be.
    I'm a first year college student studying ICT, Psychology, Media and Communication & Culture, although that probably doesn't interest you very much aha..

    To start, I'll probably try and write a few short stories before actually heading into novels.. I am really hoping that you guys will help me as best you can, and I'll do the same for you.. :p

    I'm a generally nice guy, I can be shy though, and I'm not particularly great at conversation. I'm down-to-earth, happy and quiet, but I will always be there for my friends, or anyone who needs a little help or advice. You can trust me :)

    So, that's pretty much me in a nutshell, please, feel free to to drop me a message just for a chat or anything! I'll be happy to talk to you :D

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Aaron!

    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 and Cogito) 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.
