    How Y'all Doing!!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Mistress Spike, May 23, 2020 at 5:11 AM.

    Greetings!!

    I am a long time lover of sci-fi, fantasy and all things vampire, And I find myself with ample time on my hands to get my writing muse out of mothballs and put her to work. Now that this quarantine has taken over my life. I find myself dusting off the writers notebooks and giving a go at novel writing. Glad I have found this space to help with motivation and to find like minded individuals who love writing as much as I do.

    Cheers
    Mistress Spike

    Hi Mistress Spike!

    I’m one of the forum moderators, and I want to welcome you to the forum. I think you'll find that your choice of genres (sci-fi, fantasy and vampires) is hugely popular here, so I reckon you'll find some kindred spirits quite quickly. Nice that a few good things are coming out of lockdown ...things like getting people back into writing. I've been putting it off, myself, but need to self-boot me up the backside and get back to my own second novel, which is in very slow WIP. But hey.... I can always procrastinate by being a Moderator.

    In order to help you get oriented and get settled into Writers'Forums, here are a couple of links I strongly recommend that you read, if you haven’t already. They will give you a good idea of how we operate here on the forum:

    New Member Quick Start

    Forum Rules

    You will notice in the New Member Quick Start that in order to post your work in the Workshop area—the only area of the forum where you are allowed to post your work and ask for feedback—you will need to do at least two critiques for other people, in exchange for receiving feedback on one of your own pieces of work.

    This site is designed around the concept of members helping each other out by ‘paying it forward’—through our two-for-one critique system. So do two critiques, THEN you can post something of your own. This advance 2:1 ratio lasts as long as your membership here.

    In order to help you get started doing critiques, here is a link to a good article written by one of our former moderators: https://www.writingforums.org/threads/constructive-critiques.20627/

    One of the popular areas of our forum is our contest section. There is a monthly contest running for Short Stories, Flash Fiction and Poetry. You can enter these ongoing contests, even as a new member. And we really encourage you to visit the site, read the current entries, and vote for your favourite when the voting period starts. This means a lot to the people who have written these entries. And it will also give you a good idea of what our members are capable of writing.
    https://www.writingforums.org/writing-contests/

    While the Role Playing Game section is not new, it’s being given a revamp. So if you are interested in playing and writing Role Playing Games, you might want to visit this section and get in on the fun. https://www.writingforums.org/threads/resurrecting-the-dead-rpg-section-rebuild.165055/

    I hope you have fun getting to know us and let us get to know you, via the posts you make. Please feel free to explore the forum. There is a lot under the hood. This site map might help you find your way around more quickly than the menu bars do, so feel free to use it. https://www.writingforums.org/faq/

    If you encounter any difficulties, don’t hesitate to contact me or one of the other moderators, whose names appear in yellow at the bottom of the Community page. We will be glad to help.

    Again, welcome!

    Cheers for now,
    Jan
