    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Wolfbane, Mar 6, 2012.

    First off must say happy to have reached this site.

    I usually only do fanfics sort of deals - on the fanfiction website - because english isn't my first language [despite how well I usually type it] and as such this hinders my will to write any real books.

    This seems like an interesting place though.

    Oh and a bit of personal stuff.

    I won't say sex, I'm almost 32. I have two dogs, a big fawn male pit bull named Zeus and a black & cream lurcher [greyhound x saluki x collie] named Lancelot.

    My favorite genres are fantasy and horror [both of which sorely lack in some ways from the old stuff, where there was a storyline and not a bunch of screaming twits running around like chickens with their heads cut off].

    Dislike most Holliwood movies based off of books, graphic novels, etc - they NEVER get it right - don't get me started cause I'll go on a rant of how they butchered Stan Lee's Marvel comics [sure comics].

    I am thinking of writing a vampire type story but not in a traditional fashion and most certainly not the scatter brained idiots of Twilight - those aren't vampires, those are teenagers with major complexes.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Wolfbane!

    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.

    Welcome to the forum. Take the time to read the rules it will prevent some surprises, specifically as to when and where you can post. Pets named from legends says something probably, but what specifically remains to be seen. I've only been here a few days myself but it seems like a decent play to try and improve writing skills and meet people if your into to that type of thing. Well have fun.
