    Hey guys!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Sovereign, Oct 26, 2012.

    hello, my name is Sovereign. i chose this name because a certain character in Mass Effect happens to be one of my favorites of all time - not that i wanted to sound like royalty or someone important, lol. just setting that straight at the get-go lol. Feel free to just call me Sov, if you want. :D

    anyway, about me: i'm actually an artist, as in I draw a lot... but even so, i wanted to explore a different type of art that is literature/creative writing. Stories are always something that interested me and I want to get more into the actual writing of stories since i just get random stories into my mind and simply drawing it down is not really enough. i want to actually write down a story or story structure to help me understand the goings of story writing and stuff like that.

    nice meeting you all! :D

    P.S.: and sry if i don't type out things properly or use correct grammar, but i usually do this on forums and IMing. when i write for something serious (or just fun for that matter) i do my best to make it as well written as possible ;]

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Sovereign!

    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.

    Welcome to writingforums.org. I am also new to the forum. I am sure your ingenuity as a visual artist will complement your ingenuity as a writer. I like to think of myself as "liberal" in terms of being able to embrace the norms of the new generation, but I would have to say that I strongly believe IM and texting language is corrupting today's youths' writing skills. My friend told me once that a a classmate of his used "LOL" in a formal essay in college (*Sadness*). Fortunate for you, this seems like a good place for anyone to nurture writing skills. I hope you enjoy your time here.
