    Lovely rainy Vancouver!

    Hey, I'm Dark Star!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Dark Star, Sep 15, 2012.

    So, as you can probably tell, I'm new here.

    I'm a 17 year old guy, I live in Vancouver, and writing is one of my favorite things to do. I tend to write short pieces about how I feel or the experiences I've been through. Mostly, the subject matter involves romance and the pain that is often involved. Often, my pieces are written in a way so that it can show my development over time.

    Right now, most of my pieces are about a girl I fell in love with this summer. Often, I refer to her as "angel", and the idea came from one of her nick names. About a month ago, I broke up with her and there's a new girl. My writing reflects that.

    I used to write some fanfiction. The fandom is Artemis Fowl. I have a few ideas in mind and I want to pick up on a project I left off on recently.

    However, I'm currently busy with school and my girlfriend. I write only when I feel inspired or when I need an outlet.

    Favorite books are, the final books in the Artemis Fowl and Inheritance Cycle and It by Stephen King. Favorite series would have to be a Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Dark Star!

    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, 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.
