    Hi! I'm new and excited :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Arsel, Dec 21, 2019.

    Hello everyone,
    I've never been on a forum and have no idea what to expect or how the culture is. My name is Stefan, I'm a 19-year old male student and I've been working on a huge fantasy project for about 4 years now. I'd love to read what other people have come up with and be inspired, and I'm positively bursting to hear opinions about my own stuff!
    So I have no idea if people read these introductions, but if you do, thank you kind stranger and hit me up with some work of yours that I can critique!

    o/ Hey Ansel. I'm new myself and have found the forums polite, welcoming and encouraging. I think most folks that use this forum want to help others better their work, so they can get feedback to better their own work as well, (like how the workshop is set up with a 2-1 system of feedback.) So it's been a positive experience for me so far. Hopefully for you, too. :)

    Welcome! :)

    If you want to know how not to write - read my stuff! o_O LOL

    Seriously, if you want to 'show some skin', introduce some of your characters in the Character Chatroom. Get involved in Setting-Characters-Plot in the Creative Writing sections and pick up some nuggets for your world or plot development. Lounge is the place to 'rub-elbows' with us knuckleheads! Go everywhere, explore and enjoy! :D

    Jessie has a prim-and-proper ('cept for a quiet bit of innuendo with tuple) public image but takes any opportunity for mischief. Once she decided not to be repressed, she completely let's go in bed and tries to get Dan to do everything. Of course, he does, but that doesn't mean he's comfortable with it. Yet. Good source of drama. Sex, especially sexual discovery, is a great source of emotion and drama. Include the before and after for great dramatic scenes. Something always happens after sex! :)
    Happy writing!

    Hi Arsel

    I’m one of the forum moderators and I want to welcome you to the forum.

Unfortunately, it’s that ‘time of the year’ and I’m falling badly behind on my forum duties, including writing personal welcomes to all the new members, which is what I normally like to do. So please forgive me if this ‘welcome’ is general, not personal. Consider it a Christmas form letter from a Forum mod!

    Just to keep you on track or get you on track if you’re just starting out here …please take the time to read these two links. They help to get you oriented, and also give you a notion of how we operate here.
    

New Member Quick Start

    

Forum Rules

    

If you want a quick way to explore the forum offerings, here is a great link below, and I use it often myself. It’s not a series of Frequently Asked Questions, but is, rather, a site map with links.

https://www.writingforums.org/faq/

    If you have any problems getting settled, don’t hesitate to ‘start a conversation’ with me, and I’ll do my best to help. (Just click on my owl avatar and follow the signs.)

    

Anyway, take your time, settle in, participate in any threads that draw your interest. Giving critiques in the Workshop section is much appreciated by our members, and is also a requirement if you want to post your own work for feedback. So might as well get a head start there.



    Our contests are also open to new members, both for entry and for voting. So you might want to check these out as well.



    Anyway, hope you enjoy yourself, and I’ll see you around the threads. Probably AFTER the holidays are over!



    Cheers, Jan
