    Hello to all

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Paradigm-shift, Jan 15, 2013.

    My name is Paradigm-shift (the name of my project)
    I guess I'll write a little about myself, I started writing on my deployments. It was recommended by a family member as a great way to take yourself out of a constanstly stressful situation. I found it not only did that for me but I really enjoyed it. I was always told in school to write what you know, I know space operas. I also know warfare (I might write about that one day, but for now those are my stories). I've spent countless hours with star trek, stargate, battelstar galactica, red dwarf, firefly ect.. Yes i left out star wars, I think as far as the movies go it's a ok story with simple sometimes to simple conflict. I listen to alot of books at work, its about the only time I have to do what might pass as reading. When I started writing, it was just free thinking about the future. Over time though it began to take on a plot, a life.

    A little about the Paradigm-shift Universe:

    Paradigm shift takes place in this Universe simply put, it covers all points in time from before the big bang, to present, to the future, to the end (whatever that might be). I decided that the best place to start any story is right in the middle. My first three books (of which one is written) takes place during two time periods. The primary story takes place on Earth between 1917-2012, taking many historical events and people into accounty. The secondary story line takes place during a one year period starting in the 32nd century, the two stories are linked from the beginning but it doesn't come full circle till the end.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Paradigm-shift!

    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.
