    Hi there!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Deyvion, Dec 6, 2012.


    You have clicked yourself into this thread to see who I am, so who am I?

    Well, my name is Veronica, I am 21 years old, and I live in Sweden.

    I have always felt like I have potentially great plots in my head, but I have always felt restrained by my inability to get it down on paper. I used to write short stories as assignments for my English classes in high school. My English teacher even suggested I'd go abroad to study at some school for authors. But I didn't, and I lost the inner connection to my muse of creative writing. However, as I sit here, watching the snow falling from the white sky outside my window, I feel the urge to create a warmer world instead of going out into the cold one to dig up the cars in the driveway. So I hope that spending some time at a forum with creative minds can help me to get started.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Veronica!

    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.
