    Hi Everybody

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by scrappy, Jan 13, 2013.


    I'm new and hope to meet people with a passion for writing who can possibly share their views and opinions in exchange for mine.

    I love meeting people in life with interests that are different to mine, as it is part of the fun and uniqueness of life, so hopefully I will over time get to know you all.

    I am 32 and live in the north of England. I have been writing a novel since I was about 19 and have given up during various times and it has taken on many drafts. I now find myself at the crossroads of life and feel I am a bit more educated in the craft, more patient and have more of the dreaded 'life experience', ha ha.

    My other main passion in life is lifting weights, fitness and diet. I find this much easier that novel writing, something I can do and just switch off.

    I enjoy spending time with family and friends . As a hobby I keep terratulas and praying mantis.

    My favourite novels are Steven King's Mysery and The Silence Of The Lambs.

    Hope to hear from you all soon.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, scrappy!

    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.
