    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Kesteven, Dec 7, 2011.

    I try to avoid wordy introductions but I felt I should give some indication of what I'm about before posting willy-nilly.

    I have a lot of respect (perhaps envy) for the dedication of professional writers, but I recognize that for me writing is and probably always will be an entertainment activity. The more inspired I am and the more technical skill I acquire however, the more fun it is, so that's why I'm here - to parasitize your experience and creative energies for my own twisted pleasure. The only thing I enjoy more than being creative is being creative collaboratively, so hopefully I might be able to provide some insight or inspiration myself at some point. Most of the threads I've seen here have the questions posed quite thoroughly covered in the first few posts though so it could be a challenge.

    As you can imagine I'm also quite into roleplaying and collab fiction, but for various reasons I've found roleplaying on other forums... challenging. I'll be rooting through the RPG section for sure though.

    Anyway, pleased to meet you!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Kesteven!

    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 and Cogito) 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.
