    Hello there!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Jenovaris, Nov 27, 2012.

    Hello, my name is Alexander Morgan. I've been reading a lot lately and realized that my whole life has been oriented towards writing. For some reason I feel compelled to write and to share what I know. I'm hoping that I have joined the right community. My intention is to advance my knowledge of writing further and to learn to express my ideas in a matter that others may understand. Applause is not a concern of mine, I only want to create, to elaborate on whatever view point I hold.

    A short history of my life: I was born in the state of California, at the age of three I moved to Vermont. I grew up in Vermont, up to the age of ten. At that time I moved to North Carolina, the city of Charlotte to be exact. Many lessons I learned in this city, but at the age of fourteen I moved to Marshville, NC. This is the town that I actually grew up in and learned. Since that time I've had a child, a daughter and have acquired a job at Walgreens, a drug store.

    That is the shallow story of my life. I have much to learn and much to share. My blogs URL is "ramblingidea.blogspot.com" and any writing I make that I am willing to share will be posted there.

    That's all I have to say.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Alexander!

    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.
