    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by ElijahMaddoxx, Feb 22, 2013.

    I'm Elijah, and I found this place through Google. Been a member of several message boards over the past few years, but of various subjects where my interest has unfortunately drifted.

    Getting back into writing, and decided to check this place out to see what information I could soak up, as well as maybe makin a few new friends in this cyber universe. lol.

    I'm an off and on fan of the show Criminal Minds (huge Derek Morgan/Shemar Moore fan) and I am currently addicted to the show Scandal on NBC starring the gorgeous Kerry Washington. While the writing for the former has gotten a bit lax and disappointing, the writing for the latter has been superb and outstanding, imo, since I started watching it.

    I've dabbled a little with FanFiction, am working on a bigger story of my own at the moment, but have always had a habit of starting things and not finishing them, oa habit I've been battling with hard over the past year.

    Hope this place can help me get better, because I'd love to make something of a writing career one day. It's such a euphoric hobby! :D

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Elijah!

    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. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter!

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, 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.
